Sixty-three-thousand-and one-hundred-and-eighty pounds of hair clippings, 42,122 pounds of hair color, 109,512 pounds of foil and color tubes, and 206,392 pounds of paper and plastics—that’s the amount of waste being landfilled by hair salons across the United States and Canada every single day; that’s a total 421,206 pounds of waste needlessly heading to landfills. MY SALON Suite has announced its partnership with Green Circle Salons to implement the comprehensive Artist Program, created for solopreneurs to help significantly reduce their environmental impact on the planet by recovering and recycling up to 95 percent of their beauty waste.
“We’re proud to step up to promote the Green Circle Salons program to the beauty industry. We are encouraging our suite members to adopt the program in their individual salon businesses and benefit from this waste recovery solution,” says Stacy Eley, brand president of Suite Management Franchising, the parent company of MY SALON Suite. “Consumers today demand that the businesses they frequent have green strategies in place, and this is a perfect way to gain a competitive edge while doing the right thing for our planet. We’ve adopted sustainability as a core value in our operations, and we know our members will be excited to join us.”
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, MY SALON Suite has joined forces with Green Circle Salons to take a stand for the planet and work together to reduce the ecological footprint and make the beauty industry more sustainable. Through this partnership with Green Circle Salons, MY SALON Suite Members will be redirecting what was once considered trash out of water streams and landfills to be recycled or repurposed using innovative green solutions.
As a member of the Green Circle Salons network, MY SALON Suite empowers its members and their clients at the over 270 MY SALON Suite locations in the United States and Canada with the peace of mind knowing that they are taking meaningful steps to keep their communities and environment healthy.
“When most people sit down in a stylist’s chair, they’re anticipating a relaxing experience that will leave them looking and feeling great. But neither they—nor, often, the salon professionals—are thinking about the negative impact their craft is having on the planet. But it’s not their fault. There hasn’t been enough education about the impact, and in the past, there has been a lack of solutions,” said Shane Price, founder and CEO of Green Circle Salons. “Fortunately, this is a problem that can be fixed, which is our mission here at Green Circle. We thank MY SALON Suite for joining our mission to keep people and the planet beautiful.”
