BIRCH & LACE WAS FOUNDED ON MY DREAM TO INTERTWINE OUR INDUSTRY WITH ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY.
Our mission begins with waste diversion. Hair is traditionally sent to landfills where it is left to rot & produce methane. Chemicals are generally washed down the drain into our water systems. At Birch & Lace we participate in a program called Green Circle Salons, allowing us & you to take full responsibility for the waste created. A small eco tax of $1.50 is added to each service ticket. This eco fee helps us fund our waste diversion program, and continuously improve our energy efficiency. What happens to the waste?
· Hair soaks up oil spills.
· Chemical waste is contained, instead of dumped down the drain.
· Chemicals, foils, spa waste are incinerated creating energy for hydro and ash for road production.
Product ingredients, and progressive companies with integrity are imperative to our vision. Our skin is our largest organ readily absorbing all it is exposed to. We strive to choose the safest, cleanest products that exemplify environmental dedication.
Thanks for your interest and support!
