The Patio Salon is Going Green

At the Patio Salon, our goal is to help all of our clients look and feel beautiful. We’re also all about celebrating and protecting our beautiful world and community. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve joined the growing and amazing Green Circle Salons movement. With help from our partners at Green Circle, your hair clippings can help clean up oil spills, and hair products won’t go into streams and rivers. We’re proving every day that we can do green and gorgeous at the same time.

What Is A Green Circle Salon?

The beauty industry is so important to helping women and men look and feel their best and move in the world with confidence. But we’re not going to lie: most salons generate too much waste. Did you know the beauty industry creates nearly 900 pounds of waste every minute? This includes packaging, product and (yes) hair. But thanks to this world-changing initiative, we’ve learned that we can repurpose or recycle 95 percent of our waste.  Green Circle Salons is an international program that makes it easy and affordable for local salons to reduce their eco-footprint. They help us recover, recycle and repurpose almost all of our salon waste. Since 2009, GCS has recycled or repurposed 2.1 million pounds of waste, and their goal is to make the North American salon industry fully sustainable by next year.

How Does The Green Circle Salons Program Help Our Environment?

Green Circle helps salons like ours recycle and repurpose everything from metal and plastic to unused hair pr
