I love discovering innovative businesses. Those organizations that make you go “Wow! You are doing something awesome and unique.” When that is wrapped up in conscientiousness – even better.

That is exactly how I felt when I discovered Green Circle Salons, an organization that works closely with salon owners to enable and empower them to become more sustainable. How great is that?

They have a series of turn-key services that collect, recycle and re-purpose everything from hair to foils to plastics to ensure they find another home other than landfill. Isn’t that smart?

As well, the work with partners like Bullfrog Power to help salons take their commitment to sustainability to the next level. They even give back 5% of  pre-tax profits to work with local and international organizations to develop and support programs that make creative environmental impact and lessons for positive change.

That is walking your talk.

Check out the directory on their site so you can seek out a salon in your neighborhood that has joined their program.

I love this illustration. I think it sums things up beautifully.

So you really can have your salon and be green too.

Be beautiful. Feel good about it.
