Why ICÔNE is a green salon
We at ICÔNE Coiffeurs-Visagistes care about the Earth and the environmental impacts of the products we use, so we joined Green Circle Salons since they arrived in Quebec. Green Circle Salons is a company that’s focused on making the Canadian beauty industry sustainable by the year 2020. Its methods are affordable, achievable, and most importantly, impactful. At ICÔNE Coiffeurs-Visagistes we believe that we can make a sustainable shift to green practices with the help of our customers and our staff.
Greenest in the industry
Green Circle Salons use leading brands to offer more responsible and eco-friendly options for people who want to reduce their ecological footprint without compromising on looking and feeling beautiful..
“We’ve demonstrated our commitment to the environment for a long time, such as by opting for LED lighting and green cleaning products. However, most of our waste (aluminum, hair, etc.) at Icône was not recycled by the city, and our chemical residues were ending up directly in the sewer. Green Circle gave us the solution we had been looking for. I’m relieved to say that we are now taking better care of our planet. Join Green Circle. It’s a simple, effective system that benefits everyone.”
Christian Livet, Hairdresser and Owner of ICÔNE Coiffeurs-Visagistes
Green Circle Salons sets very clear standards, and is an open, relationship-focused company.
We believe in clear expectations, ethical business dealings, transparency, accountability, inclusiveness, and open communications. Guided by honestly, integrity, and fairness, we are a movement for positive green change that has substance but also style, learning, and creativity. By working together to understand the links between our actions and their consequences on the planet, we will prove the value in sourcing locally and increasing efficiency, while redirecting, recycling, and repurposing materials once destined for landfill.
We are committed to giving back 5% of our pre-tax profits to work with local and international organizations to support programs that create positive social and environmental change.
Today, undoubtedly, climate change is the challenge of our time. We recognize that environmental issues are not just a series of isolated events like deforestation, landfill crises, or air pollution. We are beginning to understand that environmental problems affect our economics, our social structure, and the health and well-being of humanity as a whole.
