To celebrate Earth Day EVERYDAY, Mixed Co. Salon is beginning a comprehensive recycling/reuse program that will help us to significantly reduce our environmental impact on the planet. Mixed Co. Salon will now recycle/reuse upwards of 95% of all of our waste. Today, consumers vote with their dollars. A $2 Friend of the Enviroment fee is attached to each visit with us. People make the choices for change. The program helps us to redirect out of water streams and landfills everything once considered as garbage: hair, foils, color tubes, paper, plastics, and liquid chemical waste (most salons today simply rinse all leftover liquid chemicals into the sink and down the drain, possibly tainting our beloved Lake Michigan).
With today’s age of GREEN & ECO-RESPONSIBILTY, the new buzz words in business are changing us for the better! We are very excited to take our industry in a new direction with exceptional standards of environmental accountability. The beauty industry poses many challenges to the environment, from sourcing of ingredients to disposal of packaging and products. Through our alignment with Green Circle Salons, we hope to ameliorate our ecological footprint by implementing simple green changes that will make both our salon, and our industry, more sustainable. We are proud of this new partnership and knowing that Green Circle Salons is 100% traceable and fully accountable for how they handle the materials we give them.
