Over the years our salon has quietly recycled. Last year we joined Green Circle Salons and took our recycling to another level.
Green Circle Salon's mission is to make the North American salon industry sustainable by 2020. With Green Circle we can re-claim, re-use, re-cycle, re-purpose and re-direct. At Michauds we are now able to recycle chemical waste, plastics, paper, metals and even hair! Taking small steps together with our guests to transform each salon making green conversion possible and sustainable. We have learned that the average salon produces 821.76 kilograms of waste a year !
We are always amazed at the amount we have recycled.
Listed below is what we have recycled so far.
Hair - 225 lbs
Metals - 358 lbs
Papers - 643 lbs
Plastics - 394 lbs
Chemicals - 128 lbs
That is a total of 1778 lbs of recyclable material diverted from landfills.
