Did you know that currently all aluminum foils and colour tubes are not being recycled and are sent to landfill? With our partenership with Green Circle Salons we take an environmentally responsible stand and ensure that all of our metals are properly recycled. This will help to reduce the need for more landfill space, and decrease the amount of toxins going into our landfill sites.
Did you know hair when placed in garbage bags will mummify, continue to fill our landfill, and give off methane gas? It’s exciting to know that hair can be used on our oceans to help in oil spill clean-up and recovery projects. In 2010 Green Circle sent over 1000 lbs. of hair to the Gulf of Mexico to help in the clean-up of the BP oil spill. At Shine we send all of our hair clippings to Vancouver to be used in oil spill clean-up.
Did you know that all excess chemicals including colour, perm solutions and ammonia get rinsed down the sink and ultimately find their way into the water supply? This is the ugly truth of the industry. Our solution will be to send all excess colour waste to a hazardous waste facility where they will be incinerated with other chemical wastes. The ensuing heat that is created generates new sources of energy! All this while stopping these chemicals from ending up in our community’s water supply.
Shine believes in keeping our community and our earth a healthy beautiful place to live. The salon strives to be responsible for the impact it sets on our world. We focus on using products made from renewable and sustainable resources whenever possible. We use hair and skincare products that are paraben, sulfate free and Vegan.
