Embracing Change: You MedSpa & Salon Goes Green

We Create Beauty Not Waste

At You MedSpa & Salon, we've always been committed to providing our clients with the best possible service while prioritizing the health and well-being of our planet. That's why we're excited to announce our partnership with Green Circle Salons, a pioneering company dedicated to helping businesses like ours become more environmentally friendly and carbon neutral.

Last year alone, Green Circle Salons recycled an impressive 1,284,437 pounds of waste. This is a significant accomplishment, especially considering the pressing need for sustainability initiatives in today's world. Unfortunately, Alaska finds itself among the top 10 states with the lowest recycling rates, largely due to inadequate waste management systems and limitations on recyclable materials.

With Green Circle Salons, we're taking a proactive step towards addressing these challenges. By utilizing their recycling center, we'll be able to recycle a wide range of materials commonly used in our salon and spa, including hair, hair color, tin foil, paper, cardboard, plastics, wax, wax strips, PPE, and cotton. This means that almost everything we use will be repurposed or recycled, significantly reducing our environmental footprint.

As a company operating in a $40 billion industry, we recognize the importance of taking responsibility for our impact on the planet. We're committed to using as many organic products as possible and partnering with other B Corps to promote sustainability throughout our operations.

While we understand that implementing these changes may come with some challenges and costs, we firmly believe that the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks. By reducing waste, conserving resources, and cutting down on pollution, we're not only helping to protect the environment but also creating a healthier future for generations to come.

At You MedSpa & Salon, our goal is to lead by example and inspire others to join us on this journey towards a greener, more sustainable future. We encourage our clients to support us in these efforts by choosing organic products, minimizing waste, and embracing environmentally friendly practices.

We're also proud to partner with Green Circle Salons because of their commitment to transparency and accountability. Through monthly reports, we'll be able to track our progress and see exactly how our efforts are making a difference.

In closing, we believe that it's our collective responsibility to do everything we can to reduce our impact on the planet. By making small changes in our daily lives and supporting companies like Green Circle Salons, we can all play a part in creating a brighter, more sustainable future for Alaska and beyond.

Thank you for joining us on this journey towards a greener tomorrow.
