Create Beauty! Not Waste…..
- 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 waste paper, 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! Shocking, isn’t it?
As a newly Green Circle Certified Salon, we are proud to announce that Panache is now part of a comprehensive recycling and sustainability program that sets out to significantly reduce our industry’s environmental impact on the planet. Up to 95% of our salon’s waste will be reclaimed and used to create alternative sources of energy, car parts, and even bicycles!
Through our partnership with Green Circle Salons, we will be redirecting what was once considered garbage out of our water streams and landfills to be repurposed into innovative green solutions.
All hair clippings, extensions, any excess color and developer, papers and plastics, foils, aerosol cans and color tubes, and all waste from our spa and nail services by Panache will be collected by GCS – effectively cutting down our salon’s total waste, literally overnight, by 85-95%!
To help offset the cost of this massive initiative, we will be implementing an Environmental Sustainability Fee of $2.oo for combined service tickets under $25 and $3.00 for all other combined service tickets. Thank you so much for partnering with us on this important journey.
With love and care,
Kristy Weeks, Michelle Vijgen, and the entire Panache Team
