We know how much you care about the environment and want to contribute to sustainable living. As your business partner, we want to help you take your salon to a new level in terms of sustainability without affecting its efficiency.

This is a major project on its own, requiring a status-quo analysis of your salon environment, routines, services and habits. That said, today there are already many little improvements you can implement “on-the-go.” So get those changes started today and bring sustainability to life in your salon with our tips and tricks. 

STEPS YOU CAN TAKE NOW

REDUCE YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Here are some of many things you can do:

  • ban all products containing plastic microbeads –
    as we do since 2016.   
  • use only bio-degradable household cleaners
  • have a public “energy advisor” analyze your salon to identify weak areas in your sustainability chain
  • decorate your salon with plants – this reduces your carbon footprint & creates a natural, friendly atmosphere

REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

You can make a difference – simply by ...

  • incentivizing sustainable commuting within your team (public transport, bicycle or car sharing)
  • reducing the water temperature in your sinks by 1-2°C
  • reducing your room temperature to 21°C

CONSERVE WATER

Take initial steps in the right direction, e.g. by

  • combing out the color mass before rinsing
  • using easy-to-clean color mixing & application tools (e.g. Goldwell Colormat)
  • installing water-saving sink units or shower heads

SAVE ENERGY

You can start today:

  • run your washing machine with full loads to avoid unnecessary cycles
  • remove curtains and window shades to bring in natural light – this will brighten up your salon
  • replace outdated electrical devices with modern, energy-efficient models
  • switch to wind, water or solar power – change your energy provider if necessary

REDUCE WASTE

Every little bit helps! Here's what you can do:

  • use washable rather than plastic capes
  • try freehand color techniques as alternative to foil streaks
  • For better recyclability, use uncolored aluminum foil and wipe off color residues before disposal.
  • mix color/product masses gradually to avoid unnecessary product waste – if you need more, you can always mix again
  • avoid unnecessary use of single-dose products
  • introduce visible waste separation (paper, plastics, trash) for your team and your clients
  • to empty a color tube completely, use a press – or switch to cans, which generate 50% less product waste than tubes¹

1Topchic can (250ml) = 4 tubes (4x60ml)).

SHARE YOUR PASSION

Your clients and your team will be happy to support you in your sustainability endeavors, if you let them participate from the very outset:

  • inform them about your intention to become more sustainable
  • nominate someone passionate in your team to act as your sustainability ambassador – that creates commitment
  • always communicate your changes and their implications
  • report regularly about your efforts, progress and next steps  
  • provide information about your suppliers, the products you use, their ingredients, and the choices you make
