THE BAMBŪ FAMILY IS BACK FOR ANOTHER YEAR OF FABULOUS GROWTH.
Growth For You’re Hair, Our Business, and The Planet!
As of January 3rd we are now & forever a Certified Green Circle Salon.
What on Earth could this mean? Well… it means we are over 95% Waste FREE!
Allow me to explain. By being members of The Green Circle Recycling Program we are able to divert nearly All of our Waste Away from Landfills and out of our Water.
We Can Now RECYCLE: All Plastics, 1-7, including packaging, plastic bags, and tops/lids to containers (even our color tubes); All Metals, aluminum foil from hair coloring, color tubes, and aerosol cans; Everything Paper that isn’t waxed or covered in food/body waste; ALL HAIR; ALL HAIR COLOR; and a slew of materials that are not otherwise recyclable. They call this last group “Waste to Energy.”
Now that January is over and we’ve had a month to implement the program, here are the results….
In the past 4 weeks we’ve only had to throw away 1 bag of trash. ONLY ONE! For an Entire Month! Made up of mainly food & plant waste, and the occasional questionable material that wasn’t specifically mentioned on the list of what was allowed through the program. We had a few fruit flies find us due to the plant matter and bits of food that sat in our garbage for a month. In order to relieve this issue and cut down, Even More, on our “trash,” we’ve made the decision to introduce Vermiculture into our salon.
In our efforts to be as earth friendly and environmentally conscious as possible we will be implementing a live worm bin where our food scraps, plant materials, newspaper, and even cardboard, will become food for our little friends and turned into fertilizer for our plant babies.
Here is a link to more information about Vermiculture and Worm Bins:
