Mia is a proud partner with Green Circle Salons. If you haven’t heard of them, they’re doing awesome things. Here are the three biggest ways Green Circle Salons and Mia help salon professionals:
They recycle and repurpose hair, foils, color tubes, papers and plastics AND divert excess hair chemicals from being rinsed down the drain. Mia especially helps you with that last one – see you later, over-mixing!
Green Circle enables salons to implement energy and water saving systems through a unique funding tool that actually helps salons to afford these changes. You can use some of the money Mia has saved you with your reduced inventory to invest in greener systems for your salon!
Get noticed by consumers looking to channel their spending into like-minded green-minded businesses through Green Circle's online green salon directory. Make sure you're on there by using Mia!

Here Are a Few Easy Tips to Kickoff Your Green Initiative in Your Salon Today!
Use the no paper rule. Bookings, notes, emails, and social media take the place of binders, flyers, and postcards.
Offer fair trade coffee and tea to your customers.
Switch out your old lightbulbs to eco-friendly soft-white CFLs.
Use plants around your salon to produce oxygen. Bonus tip: reuse old product bottles as planters!
Clean green! Use vegetable-based cleaning products or check to see that they're Green Seal.
Save water by only using the washer when it's full.
Add storefront curb appeal and lower your AC bill by adding potted plants, bistro chairs, and a large umbrella. The shade from the umbrella will keep your salon cooler.
Many plastic containers, magazines, allowable glass, types of cardboard and other paper items can be recycled. Call your trash pick-up company and ask about their recycling options to get started.
