Salons across North America throw away approximately 500,000 pounds of waste each day. Collectively, we believe in doing our part to protect our planet as a sustainable salon partnered with Green Circle Salons. As a Certified Green Circle Salon, 98% of the items used during a service at Green & Anchor are recycled.
With a sleek modern aesthetic and panoramic views, Green + Anchor is also a member of the Green Circle Salons, an organization aimed to reduce carbon footprint by pioneering solutions for repurposing, recycling, and diverting waste from landfill and waterways.
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!
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.
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 boom can only be used once where a hair boom can be used up to 5 times.
