We are a Certified Green Circle Salon


As of July 1, 2024 we are a Certified Green Circle Salon. What does this mean? It means that up to 95% of service waste is now being recycled and turned into sustainable plastics, commercial insulation, clean energy, and environmental use products.

Things that we recycle as a part of this program: hair clippings, foils, metal, plastic, paper, hair color (including bleach and toner), single use products like gloves, waxing materials, etc.

We are so excited to be participating in this program and doing our part to create a cleaner environment for ourselves, our children, and grandchildren.

Salon Waste Facts
  • In the U.S. 63,000 pounds of hair is thrown away and it does not decompose. Hair is recycled into commercial insulation, sustainable plastics, and hair booms for use in oil spills and storm water filtration.

  • 110,000 pounds of aluminum are used daily in U.S. salons—that is half the weight of a commercial airplane! Did you know, aluminum can be recycled infinitely?

  • 42,000 pounds of excess hair color is washed down the drain daily in the U.S. This ends up in our drinking water and soil. Green Circle sends color to a chemical waste recycling facility where it is turned into clean energy or separated into water and oil with the clean water returned to the water system and the oil converted to fuel.

  • Single use materials, like gloves, waxing materials, etc. also get recycled and turned into clean energy.

  • Paper and plastic—cups, bottle caps, etc. is also recycled by Green Circle.

To make all of this possible we will have a $2.00 Environmental Service fee added to each appointment. We are sensitive to adding these costs to services but feel very strongly about doing our part to lessen the environmental impact our service industry causes.
