Going Green with Green Circle Salons
As a Green Circle Certified Salon, we are proud to say that Bella Chic Salon is part of a comprehensive recycling and sustainability program that sets out to significantly reduce our industry’s environmental impact on the planet.
From the sourcing of ingredients to the disposal of packaging and products, the salon and beauty industry has long posed many challenges to the environment. With this in mind, we wanted to join forces with Green Circle to take a stand for our planet and work together to reduce our ecological footprint and make our industry more sustainable. Through our partnership with Green Circle Salons, we redirect what was once considered garbage out of our water streams and landfills to be repurposed into innovative green solutions. As of December 1, 2018, all hair clippings, extensions, any excess color and developer, papers and plastics, foils, aerosol cans and color tubes from Bella Chic have been collected by GCS - effectively cutting down our salon’s total waste by 85-95%!
63,180 lbs. of hair clippings, 42,122 lbs. of hair color, 109,512 lbs. of foil and color tubes, and 206,392 lbs. of wastepaper, salon bottles, and other paper and plastic items – that’s the amount of waste being tossed out by hair salons across North America EVERY SINGLE DAY (that’s a whopping total of 421,206 lbs.!). We are proud to do our part in reducing our environmental impact and hope you will join us.
