“We had to do a lot of research to stick to our commitment of being green while offering excellent services,” explains Alanna York, owner & president of Head Games®. “We used sustainable cork flooring throughout & reclaimed materials from old pickle barrels for our custom built colour bar, reception desk & pedicure lounge. We utilized SpectraLights, the greenest lights available that save about 85% in electricity and bulbs last 20 years, reducing landfill. We installed The Freestylist Support System, the world's first and only weightless blow-drying system because it also draws less power and extends the life of blow-dryers, which produce less waste. We are hoping to install solar hot water system soon, and of course we recycle almost EVERYTHING, even our clients hair! Which we ship off to be made into oil absorbing mats used to help clean up oil spills all over the world. All these factors contribute to reducing our carbon footprint,” adds York.
Other eco-friendly practices include a signature line of hair products called USE ME, that are sulfate and paraben free, vegan and organically formulated. The line is bottled in BPA free packaging, which can be refilled at the salon’s Filling Stations (T) to reduce and reuse packaging.
