We want to make the world a more beautiful place at Mode Salon + Spa. Doing this starts with taking care of our planet. The beauty industry and all other industries for that matter need to become more sustainable. For us, this begins at home in our salon in Scottsdale, Arizona. We chose to become a Green Circle Salon so we could do our part in saving this big, beautiful planet we call home!
What is a Green Circle Salon?
At Mode Salon + Spa, we love our planet just as much as we love the beauty industry. That’s why we make sustainability a priority. Green Circle Salons has created a sustainable solution for recycling and reusing beauty waste inside various salons across North America. The Green Circle’s unique, one-of-a-kind platform allows us to repurpose and recover up to 95% of beauty waste. As advocates for the environment, we are thrilled to be part of this incredible program.
What Do We Recycle and Repurpose?
- Hair clippings
- Leftover hair color
- Color tubes
- Aerosol cans
Why Do We Care?
According to Rubicon, in the United States, about 75% of our waste is recyclable. On average, we’re only recycling about 30% of that. We don’t have to tell you twice that this percentage isn’t great. While we can’t solve the country’s recycling problems, we want to do our part to increase that 30%. In the hair industry alone, 43,000 pounds of material is wasted every single day, even though the majority of our products and materials are reusable or recyclable! Not only do we want to recycle and repurpose salon materials, we also make sure to use eco-friendly products and tools in our salon. Becoming a Green Circle Salon was a simple choice for Mode. It’s easy, it’s important, and above all, it’s the right thing to do.
Where Luxury Meets Sustainability
Think about natural beauty products. You’re probably imagining items that you can purchase at a farmer’s market or organic specialty store. These products are often plain and minimalistic, rather than beautiful and high-end. The Mode team believes you can have the best of both worlds. A love of luxury doesn’t have to compromise your dedication to sustainability! That’s why we’ve chosen to use specific products in our salon and spa. When you visit Mode, you will find the following high-end, natural, cruelty-free brands.
- Baxter of California
- Shu Uemura Art of Hair
