The beauty industry creates 877 pounds of waste every single minute. We have joined with Green Circle Salons on their mission to change that.
As of November 1st, 2020, The Good Earth Salon was recognized as “Certified Sustainable” through Green Circle Salons. What this means is: 95% of our waste is recycled, turned into clean energy, or reused in some way.
This includes: all plastic, paper, HAIR, excess color, color tubes, PPE equipment (masks, gloves, etc), spa waste (cotton balls, wax strips, q-tips, etc), and single use items.
In order to ensure we are able to continue our commitment to maintaining a sustainable salon, a $2.00 Health and Environment fee will be applied to all chemical services. With the beauty industry being a huge contributor to the 8 million + tons of waste dumped into the world's oceans each year, we are determined to do our part to reduce.
Green Circle Salons goal is to help salons and spas go green, gain clients, and save money, in a way that’s ethical and simple. They do that while also ensuring their own operations and practices are green and sustainable. They’ve been certified by B Corp and the Carbon Trust to acknowledge that we meet the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility, and meet requirements for Zero Waste to Landfill.
