Your Next Visit to the Beehive Will Be More Sustainable
We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Green Circle Salons to make your next visit to our salon a sustainable one!
Did you know that your salon visit has an impact on the enviroment? Because hair, metals and chemical residue cannot be treated by most municipalities, this waste would end up in our landfills and waterways. We've partnered with GCS to turn your hair clippings into hair booms to clean up oil spills, pillows for international aid efforts and refugee pet beds, your color tubes and used foils will be reclaimed and turned into new metal, and chemical residue from color and bleach will be be used to make new sources of energy.
We're so excited to be a part of this amazing program. Feel free to ask us more next time you're in the salon.
