Think Green One Hairstyle at a Time
Luminous Salon has partnered with the Green Circle Salon movement! Salons across North America throw away approximately 500,000 pounds of waste each day. As a Green Circle Salon, we recycle nearly 95% of all the waste created during your salon appointment. Foils, chemical waste, paper, plastic, and even hair that had once landed with the rest of our trash and in our water is now used to help save the world! We believe that sustainability is a responsibility, not a luxury.
The old method was to sweep up the hair and throw it away. Now, all cut hair is sent to Green Circle Salons. It is then placed in hair booms which can be used during oil spills. A synthetic booms can only be used once where a hair boom can be used up to 5 times.
Previously when a stylist completed a color service they would simply rinse out the color bowl sending the unused color down the sink. This increases the chance of it ending up in our lakes. Now, all unused color is sent back to Green Circle Salons. Any clean water that can be extracted is returned to lakes, streams and rivers. The remaining color is burnt and used as pigment in things like paint, asphalt etc.
COLOR TUBES – CAPS – LATEX GLOVES
All of these items used to make their way into the trash and then out to the landfill. Now all color tubes, hair caps, latex gloves…even the lids for the color tubes are recycled!
We all have to do our part to protect our planet. We hope that you will choose Luminous, not only for our amazing stylists, but to also be part of a salon that has become one of the most sustainable.
A $1.00 environmental fee will be added to all services to make this green conversion possible
