ey there, welcome to Society! Are you ready for a salon experience that’s inherently cool but inclusive, chic AF but so easy and also takes a stand for sustainability? Society Salons in Los Angeles isn't just your go-to destination for hair transformations and on-point styles. They've joined forces with Green Circle Salons, the trailblazers of the beauty industry's sustainable revolution, to redefine what it means to be beautiful while caring for the planet.
Let's talk about Green Circle Salons for a moment. These guys are superheroes fighting beauty waste and climate change. Since their inception in 2009, they've empowered salons, including our beloved Society Salons, to offset their emissions and recover up to 95% of their previously considered "unrecoverable" beauty waste. Hair clippings, foils, excess hair color, aerosol cans, color tubes—you name it, they find a way to recycle it. With Green Circle Salons, we've become a certified green salon, paving the way for a brighter, more sustainable future.
Our values align perfectly with Green Circle Salons' mission. We believe in thinking sustainably, leading with big hearts, and seeing possibilities in challenges. Together, we're committed to making beauty sustainable and leaving a positive impact on the environment, the climate, and the beauty industry we adore.
“Choosing to work with Green Circle Salons has been one of the best decisions we've made. Their expertise in recycling salon waste and their dedication to preserving our planet resonates deeply with us and our clients.” - Sam DiVine, Salon Owner
Through our partnership, Society Salons has proudly joined a tribe of over 16,000 Waste Warriors who are dedicated to keeping beauty waste out of landfills and waterways. In fact, last year alone, these incredible individuals prevented a whopping 1,284,437 pounds of beauty waste from wreaking havoc on our planet. That's a massive win for Mother Earth! Not only that, but they also generated 85,800 kWh of clean energy from waste-to-energy processes. To put it into perspective, that's enough to power 94 homes for an entire month or charge over 7,000,000 smartphones.
By diverting 157 metric tons of single-use waste from landfills, we've collectively avoided a mind-boggling 47 metric tons of CO2e emissions. That's like taking 10 cars off the road for a whole year! Impressed? We are. And guess what? We've got the certifications to prove it. Green Circle Salons proudly wears the badge of being a Certified B Corporation, a community of companies using their business as a force for good.
So, when you step through the doors of Society Salons, you're not just treating yourself, you're making a conscious choice to support a salon that walks the talk when it comes to the environment. We believe that sustainability and style go hand in hand, and our partnership with Green Circle Salons is proof of that. We're setting a new standard in the industry, challenging the status quo, and showing that beauty can be beautiful in more ways than one.
Together, let's redefine beauty, one eco-chic hairstyle at a time.
