The Green Circle explained......
Level 10 Eurospa
Beauty Salon, Hair Salon, Day Spa
Level 10 Eurospa is very excited to announce that they are now a CERTIFIED GREEN CIRCLE SALON and through their partnership with Green Circle, can ensure that 100% of all hair, foils, colour tubes, papers, plastics and excess chemicals are recycled and/or repurposed in an environmentally responsible way.
Having discovered Green Circle 3 years ago, Leanne finally got the call in July that the program was now offered in our area. “We have always strived to do our part in reducing our ecological foot print and I am extremely happy that with this partnership, we are now able to manage virtually all our waste! At the end of the day, all we have left is compost.”
Green Circle has made it very easy for salons. “We have separate bins for hair, metals, papers, plastics, glass and excess hair colour and spa waste. At the end of the week we pack everything into shipping boxes and a local delivery service transports them to our Green Circle warehouse in Burnaby.” This is where everything is sorted and distributed to the appropriate facility. All hair is used to make hair booms for soaking up oil and chemical spills, all metals (hair colour foils and tubes) along with papers, glass and plastics are recycled. Spa waste (not recyclable for hygiene reasons) and excess chemicals are incinerated creating clean energy that goes directly to BC Hydro while the ash that remains is used in the manufacturing of asphalt, concrete and bricks.
“At Level 10 we understand how important it is to advocate environmental stewardship and invite other salons to join Green Circle Salons to advance positive green change.” Not only has Leanne’s philosophy always been “beauty and wellness are a result of taking care of one’s SELF – it can now include helping to take care of the planet. Now that is beauty inside and out!
