Fiona Hair NYC
is a certified
Green Circle Salon
What does this mean?
Green Circle Salons is a special recycling/repurposing program that ensures hair, foils, color tubes, plastics, papers, and chemicals are diverted out of our landfills and water systems. That is 90-95% of our salons waste! That’s right! Even the hair we sweep from the floor is repurposed. Hair can be used to help clean up oil spills, as a gardening tool to keep away rabbits, deer, etc. as well as a natural fertilizer as it decomposes and we are proud to be a part of this Green Initiative to Revolutionize the Industry.
The impact that we have
KEEPS PEOPLE AND THE PLANET BEAUTIFUL!
Press about our Recycling partnership:
"Green Circle Salons is a special recycling/repurposing program that ensures hair, foils, color tubes, plastics, irons/dryers, and chemicals are diverted out of landfills and water systems. Since these materials, products and tools are salon-specific and cannot be recycled by the city, they are sent to Green Circle Salons instead. Additionally, Guidice collects and sends in hair clippings (shorter than 10 inches) so that they can be repurposed and used for oil spill cleanups. Booms made of hair are used multiple times, in comparison to synthetic ones that are disposed of after one use, because they haven’t found the end of their life cycle yet.
“That’s what hair is meant to do – to soak up all that oil and grease, get washed and do it all over again,” Guidice says.
Inside the salon, Guidice tries to be as eco-friendly as possible, using only LED light bulbs, making her own flavored beverages with SodaStream, and using reusable K-Cups for coffee. She also carries and uses some organic hair color lines, which many professional companies are now making. Plus, instead of printing out receipts or having a customer loyalty punch card, she sends e-receipts to her clients and handles appointment bookings online."
