how the planet benefits

Green Circle diverts salon & spa waste from landfill & waterways

They collect, recycle & repurpose salon or spa's hair, foils, colour-tubes, papers and plastics, glass, spa waste AND divert excess hair chemicals from being rinsed down the drain.


$1 from your service each visit to Reed Hairstyling goes to paying for this recycling program.  

Salons produce difficult-to-manage waste often contaminated with bleach, hair color, and other chemicals. A typical salon has high water consumption, high energy usage, and releases chemical by-product down the drain. At the same time many salons strive to be eco-friendly wherever possible, to attract green-minded clients and reduce their footprint. As they create beauty, they make waste.

Green Circle manufactures hair booms for the purposes of oil spill cleanup. Human hair has the same adsorbent properties as an animal’s fur or feathers and proves extraordinarily effective at removing oil from water. We donate booms to any party in the event of an oil spill.

Other materials collected are soiled foils, color tubes, aerosols, gloves, excess hair color and lightener, wax strips, nail polish bottles, glass, plastics, cardboard and paper, electronics, batteries, and light bulbs.
