Salon Envy Chicago
Have you ever wondered what happens to the hair we sweep up after your haircut, color boxes, left over color, etc?
At Salon Envy Chicago,
we are a certified GREEN CIRCLE SALON.
What does that mean?
This means 95% of our waste at the salon is repurposed or recycled. We are on a journey to #zerowaste.
Hair- Hair is cleaned and stuffed into nylon tubes – “hair brooms” that are used to mop up oil spills in the ocean.
Equipment- Broken equipment is broken down into parts, or repaired and sent to partner salons in development countries.
Hair color- Water is extracted from left over hair color and the remaining material is used to make plastic.
We also recycle all paper and paper products, plastics, and glass.
