The Green Salon Collective At the Joshua Tree
The Joshua Tree is one of a growing number of forward thinking & eco conscious salons across the UK to join the Green Salon Collective. You may have seen this recently on the BBC ‘One Show’. This commitment is a demonstration that here at The Joshua Tree, we really strive to go above and beyond when it comes to delivering amazing salon services BUT also looking after people and our planet. There is no planet B!
Our Green Pledge
We take recycling seriously. Since the beginning of the pandemic, global disposable consumption has been out of control & the recent news regards global warming frankly alarming. With the support of the Green Salon Collective, the Joshua Tree is now able to do its bit & recycle all the following:
So, what does this mean? Using the Green Salon Collective means we…..
SEND NOTHING TO LANDFILL
Sending waste to landfill is such an outdated concept because there are so many ways all of our waste can be put to work again. We are committed to keeping all hairdressing waste out of landfill.
RECYCLE, COMPOST AND RECOVER
We work with local businesses and organisations to ensure that each hairdressing waste stream is converted into something useful.
The Green Salon Collective use all of their profits to support local charities such as Food Cycle and Haircuts 4 Homeless. They also financially support tree planting efforts with sales from their Return Boxes.
To support this fantastic new initiative, we will be introducing a small ‘Green Fee ‘of £1.00- £2.00’ to all our services. This will be added at the end of your service & marked on your bill as a ‘Green Fee’. This will then allow us to provide this essential contribution to the environment, the planet & ultimately generations to come.
Environmental and social impacts have always been at the heart of what we do, so we continue to work with suppliers that are in harmony with our views saying NO to animal cruelty , NO to petrochemicals & chemicals & YES to harnessing nature & the powerhouse of pure flowers & plants -such as-
- Aveda Hair Colour, Haircare and Skincare- 100% vegan
- Made for Life Organics Skincare
- Essential Beauty Waxing System
- Enki and Scrummi 100% biodegradable disposable towels
We hope you welcome The Green Salon Collective to the Joshua Tree & are as keen as we are to really make a difference.
Please look out for updates over the coming months as we calculate & share the difference we are making & other good news stories.
