BEAUTY CAN BE GREEN

We all know that the beauty industry is not known for being green. At Concrete Blonde, we’re trying to change that. Not only are we working towards becoming a zero impact salon & spa, we are passionate about inspiring other Sea to Sky salons to come along for the ride.

As part of the Green Circle Salons network, we ensure that everything from our hair clippings, color tubes, chemical laden foils, color by-product, papers, plastics to other spa waste is either recycled, reused or repurposed. This network has diverted over 2.5 million pounds of waste from landfills and waterways.

Did you know that human hair has the same absorbent properties as fur and feathers proven effective in removing oil from water? Hair from our salon was actually used in booms that helped to clean up an English Bay oil spill.

Each decision we make at Concrete Blonde has environmental impact in mind. From our product lines to our water tanks, we are making every effort to take steps towards a more sustainable beauty industry.

Keep an eye on our blog! Our environment section will be telling more of our sustainability stories.

ENVIRO-FACTS

Here are just a few of the ways we are working to minimize our environmental impact:
  • We recycle, reuse or repurpose 95% of our Salon & Spa waste
  • We exclusively carry the Davines & Comfort Zone product lines (BCorps using eco packaging & science based conscious formulas, created using 100% clean energy)
  • We’re a member of the Green Circle Salons network (stewards of clean air, clean water & clean soil)
