Ron King and Gabe Alvarez Interview with Suzanne King about the Green Circle Salons program and the fabulous ways we are protecting our environment!
Written by Suzanne King on Sept. 29, 2019
There is so much news today about what is not working for the environment, and I hope this interview shows you what IS working. I hope that it empowers and inspires each of you, and shows you how business and the environment can really prosper.
The bad news is that the beauty industry creates 877 pounds of garbage PER minute - yes, per minute! The GOOD news though, is that this amazing organization called Green Circle Salons (GCS) helps salons around the world divert 85-95% of what would have been waste. GCS is revolutionizing what salons do with chemicals, hair, metals and the list goes on. What would have been thrown into landfills or down the drains is now being turned into energy, booms to clean up oil spills and so much more!

This has huge impacts on our waterways, methane emissions (yes, hair in landfills actually causes a big methane problem, which I had no idea about until I learned about what the Ron King salon in Austin joined GCS to have more eco-friendly practices). I am so excited about what GCS and salons like Ron King salon are doing for our beautiful planet!

I hope that you love learning about it too!

Every individual, organization and company can make a difference. We can make a difference. Let’s keep building positive momentum!
