How To Make your Salon Franchise Eco-Friendly

Climate change and pollution have become a common concern in today’s time, especially plastic pollution. From trapping and endangering sea life to making its way into the food chain, the overuse of plastic is a growing problem with far-reaching consequences.

The beauty and salon industry has always been considered a major contributor to plastic pollution. The beauty industry has created 120.8 billion units of packaging the recent years, 40% of which was made from rigid plastic.

With the growing awareness around sustainability, salon owners are becoming mindful of their responsibilities towards a cleaner, more sustainable business practices.

Thus, along with enhancing the beauty of your customers, do your bit in preserving the beauty of nature. Here are some useful tips to make your salon eco-friendly.

Use and Sell only Recyclable Products

Over 16 billion pounds of plastic leak into our ocean waters yearly. With world population continuing to increase, plastics can be a huge problem for the ecosystem. Thus, the salon industry can resort to using products and packaging with sustainable profiles and refillable packaging seems like the ideal solution. Refillable beauty packages have great potential for salons looking to improve their green credentials. Many brands are now offering chic and refillable packaging. You can reduce the environmental footprint and plastic pollution generally associated with cosmetics, by simply using and selling recyclable products to your customers. 

Use Cruelty-Free Products

Every year, over 100 million animals die from animal testing and millions are captured and tortured. Not only it is inhumane, but it also threatens the sustainability of nature. Disrupting the balance of nature in the name of animal testing is both risky and more expensive than non-animal testing.

 It is advisable to use products for your salon which are cruelty-free and do not support animal testing. Such as you can consider products endorsed by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA. Using cruelty-free products will not only take you one step closer to becoming eco-friendly salon but will also make you feel good about that no animals were harmed while making your salon successful.

Moreover, there are many customers who refrain from going to the salons who use animal tested products; you will be able to tap that set of customers as well.

Eco-Friendly Decor

Beauty Industry is all about looks and decor is an integral part of it. Decor plays a very critical role behind the success of any salon business, as it is the reflection of the brand, its virtues and visions. Your decor sets the tone for a business and narrates a story about the brand, professionalism and success.

Thus, if you are claiming your salon to be eco-friendly, make sure it reflects in your interior decor as well. Use eco-friendly decorations such as recyclable artwork that were produced using sustainable and eco-friendly methods. Compliment that decor with paint free of VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds.

Chemical Free Products

Ammonia & Formaldehyde are commonly found chemicals in the beauty industry. Ammonia is generally found in lots of hair colours. Ammonia is not only harmful to the environment but also has adverse health effects. Offer ammonia-free hair colour to your customers, as it will not only increase your contribution towards being eco-friendly, but it will also make your colour services more vibrant, long-lasting, and shiny!
