Over to Karine...
I am delighted to be the new Ambassador for Good Salon Guide’s ECO Salon accreditation. Working sustainably is a subject that’s been close to my heart since I can remember and more so than ever now - I am Australian and to watch Australia burn rips at my heart.
The more salons I can get the message to regarding working more sustainably, the happier our planet will be. And me of course! I introduced organic colour to my salon nearly 20 years ago and it was so niche, everyone in the industry thought I was mad, but the clients loved it and word soon spread, bringing me lots of new clients for whom ethics mattered. Now, clients really do expect their salon to be trying to be sustainable and the truth is, it’s good for business!
有时它只是一个简单的小调整，导致大变化。不要看起来像避免和繁殖的可持续性，宝贝步骤是让你在路上的。减少水消耗，不要过度使用滚筒式烘干机，禁用单一使用咖啡杯和水瓶，为自己和沙龙。看看你用的是 - 你需要购买用单一用塑料包裹的产品吗？沙龙颜色挑战：收集你沙龙的所有剩余颜色一周（没有命名和羞辱），看看你最终有什么 - 它会震惊你，这就是你可以在旅程中开始更加可持续的地方。要开始，我真的建议你读或下载通过露西思维转向塑料上的潮汐, it’s absolutely brilliant to get you thinking about what plastic you use and how it’s become so prevalent.
