    Body Mind Spirit Salon and Day Spa Groton, MA Joins Sustainability Initiative to Keep the Planet More Beautiful
     
     
    (Chicago–4/1/2019) As a new member of Green Circle Salons, Body Mind Spirit Salon and Day Spa, Groton, MA is beginning a comprehensive recycling / reuse program that will help to significantly reduce its environmental impact. The program helps to redirect everything once considered garbage, out of the water streams and landfills.  As an example, in 2010 Green Circle Salons sent more than 1,000 pounds of hair to the Gulf of Mexico to help clean the BP oil spill.   Foils, color tubes, paper, plastics, and liquid chemical waste (most salons today simply rinse all leftover liquid chemicals into the sink and down the drain) will be redirected.
     
    In today’s age of GREEN & ECO-RESPONSIBILTY, businesses in this industry are changing for the better!  “We are very excited to be a part of this program and launching it in the month of Earth Day seemed appropriate.  This is an opportunity to move in a new direction with exceptional standards of environmental accountability” said owner Beth Lindstrom.  She went on to state that “the beauty industry poses many challenges to the environment, from sourcing of ingredients to disposal of packaging and products. We pride ourselves on our commitment to the least toxic ingredients and this aligns nicely with our motives. 
     
    “Through our association with Green Circle Salons, we hope to lessen our ecological footprint by implementing simple changes that will make our salon better for the environment. We are proud of this new partnership and knowing that Green Circle Salons is 100% traceable and fully accountable for how they handle the materials we give them is remarkably important,” said manager Jessica Bisol.
     
    What does this mean for our customers?
    • Consumers vote with their dollars. With the Green Circle platform, we give consumers a choice that supports sustainability. We can now improve the beauty of our clients and the planet at the same time.
    • It gives our clients peace of mind knowing that their salon has taken meaningful steps to keep our community healthy.
     
    Key Questions:
    Did you know that currently all aluminum foils and color tubes that are not being recycled are sent to landfills?
    Recycling aluminum uses roughly 5% of the energy required to create virgin aluminum from bauxite. Ninety- five percent of all aluminum can be recycled over and over again, including the foils and color tubes that are used in salons across North America. From now, Body Mind Spirit will take an environmentally responsible stand and ensure that all metals are properly recycled. This will help to reduce the need for more landfill space, reduce our dependence on non-renewable resources, and decrease the amount of toxins going into our landfill sites.
     
    Did you know hair when placed in garbage bags will mummify, continue to fill our landfill, and give off methane gas?
    Body Mind Spirit will now be diverting all hair out of landfills and into other more sustainable projects.  Using hair waste can play an important role in a number of commercial applications. It’s exciting to know that hair can be used in our oceans to help oil spill clean-up and recovery projects.
     
    Did you know that all excess chemicals get rinsed down the sink into our water stream?
    This is the ugly truth of the industry. Our solution will be to send all excess color waste to a hazardous waste facility where they will be incinerated to produce clean energy!
