This latest collaboration with GSC is to help salons and barbershops work towards greater sustainability: going green is good for the planet.

They use hair to clean up oil spills. They generate clean energy using discarded PPE. They even compost salon towels!

Education is also a big part of what GSC do. They help to empower their members and the broader industry with up-to-date and verifiable information related to all things sustainability to make better-informed decisions for salons continue to run and grow their businesses.

Beyond providing each of their members with starter kits, marketing material, next-day collections and ongoing support, GSC also offers to share useful education material on all matters regarding sustainability with the whole hairdressing industry.
