Vanity Belle is helping keep our earth beautiful, and our clients, by implementing a recycle/reuse program and using products that share our passion for sustainability to significantly reduce our environmental impact on the planet. We are a proud member of Green Circle Salons, a program that helps to redirect out of water streams and landfills everything once considered as garbage: hair, foils, color tubes, paper, plastic, and liquid chemical waste (most salons today simply rinse all leftover liquid chemicals into the sink and down the drain). This is 85-95% of our salon's waste! Hair can be used to help clean up oil spills, as a gardening tool to keep away rabbits, deer, etc. as well as a natural fertilizer as it decomposes. The beauty industry poses many challenges to the environment, from sourcing ingredients to disposal of packaging and products. Through our alignment with Green Circle Salons, we hope to ameliorate our ecological footprint by implementing simple green changes that will make both our salon, and our industry, more sustainable. We were the first salon in California to join this program, and we are excited to see other salons following in our footsteps! Our hair product line, Davines, also holds a high respect for our environment, using high grade, natural ingredients. Even the packaging is a factor, using recyclable materials and as little raw materials as possible. To allow us to support the Green Circle Salons program, a small Environmental Stewardship Fee of $1.50 is added to each of our guests' ticket at the end of their service. Our clients leave feeling beautiful, and feeling good about the impact they are helping us make on the environment.
