Azure joins Green Circle Salons to make a positive green change!
What steps are you taking to be greener in 2020? We recognize that the beauty industry produces a lot of waste and we felt we needed to be part of a positive green change to help keep our planet beautiful. We are proud to announce our partnership with Green Circle salons to help offset the 421, 206 pounds of waste generated daily by North American hair salons.
Green Circle Salons provides the world’s first, and North America’s only, sustainable salon solution to recover and re-purpose beauty waste. This means that 95% of our salon waste is recovered, repurposed and kept out of the landfills and waterways! Everything from hair, leftover hair color, foils, color tubes, aerosol cans, paper and plastics and even electronic waste can be recycled and repurposed!
Curious about what they do with the left-over salon waste? Hair is repurposed into hair booms to help oil spill cleanups or to create innovative bio-composite bins and sometimes even used as beds for animals in need! Excess hair colour is used as fuel to create energy to be reinjected into power grids. Chemical laden foil is cleaned and recycled into new consumer products. Even electronic waste and mannequin heads are recovered and given new life!
Since 2009, Green Circle Salon members have diverted 5.2 million pounds of beauty waste from landfills and waterways!
In order to ensure that this waste is recycled responsibility, we will now include a small Environmental Services Fee of $2 on services $15 and over. Together, we can make more environmentally conscious decisions.
Thank you for helping us be a #wastewarrior!”
