Getting the Waste Out of Beauty Salons and Spas

on October 12, 2021

(NewsUSA) - Remember the pile of hair on the salon floor when you finally got your first real haircut after coronavirus restrictions were eased?

Even in normal times, the beauty industry creates more than 877 pounds of waste every single minute when you combine all the hair clippings, color tubes, used foils, excess hair color, aerosol cans and the like. That's over 421,000 pounds of usable materials needlessly heading straight into landfills every day.

How to deal with all those pounds in an environmentally friendly way has become a real issue. Enter Green Circle Salons, a beauty waste recovery service that started out 12 years ago in Canada before going on to help U.S. businesses recycle and repurpose up to 95 percent of their beauty waste.

Want to do your part for the planet? Green Circle Salons makes it easy to find a Certified Sustainable Salon near you through its online directory.
