Green Circle Salons is a new company working to make Canadian salons sustainable by 2020. At Green Circle, it is believed that providing salons with a “green conversion” will help keep our planet as beautiful as its inhabitants. This transformation consists of redirecting, recycling and repurposing materials that were once destined for landfill, as well as using locally produced products.
Caylee Waslienko, owner of Hype Hair Studio said, “At Hype Hair Studio we strive to be an environmentally responsible salon, and working with Green Circle Salons has made this initiative that much easier. We are now able to recycle and repurpose the majority of our waste from foils, colour tubes, unused or excess chemicals and even hair”.
Emma Austin, stylist at The Village Salon, has noted the steps of how to dispose of chemicals in an environmentally friendly way. “Take no extra time” and yet, make “an incredible difference” to our planet.
The Green Salon Directory (www.greencirclesalons.ca/directory.aspx) provides eco-conscious consumers with a simple way to find local “like-minded, green-minded salons”. This long, growing list includes Angel Hair, Aphrodite’s Sanctuary, Aria Salon and Spa, Down 2 Earth Salon, Earth Salon, EMC2 Salon, Evolve Hair Studio, and many more.
