"The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it." -Robert Swan
WHAT DID EARTH SAY TO THE OTHER PLANETS? YOU GUYS HAVE NO LIFE.
KEEP THE EARTH CLEAN
Here at Blues, one big mission for us is to reduce our industries impact on environmental waste. Blues Hair Studio helps in recovering 95% of our salon's beauty waste such as; hair clippings, foils and color tubes, while also becoming carbon-neutral. Today, we have saved 206 lbs of these items from entering our landfills.
Today, 63,000 pounds of hair gets thrown away every day. Every garbage bag of hair produces greenhouse gases when broken down, which contributes to climate change.
Today, over 42,000 pounds of excess hair color, lightener and toner is thrown away every day. When rinsed down the drain, it can find it's way back into our drinking water and soil.
Today, over 110,000 pounds of used metal, including hair foils, is thrown away every day in salons in North America. That's over half the weight of a commercial airplane.
Today, single use items - like nail files, waxing strips and cotton swabs - make up a large portion of beauty waste that ends up in our landfills.
Today, more than half the waste thrown away in salons is paper and plastic. If not properly recycled, these items clutter our landfills.
Although, PPE is necessary to keep salon guests and staff safe, it means added waste. We help recover materials like gloves, masks and disinfectant wipes to have a helping hand in giving them a new life.
