Love You Hair, Love Your Life, Love Your Planet

Creating beauty and not waste is important to us at Supernova Salon. We are conscientious about the planet and are always striving to reduce our footprint. We do this through an in-house recycling program to keep all of our toxic waste out of the landfills and properly recycled we are 98% waste diverted. We are currently taking the proper steps to become a carbon neutral company. We are very proud to reduce the waste generated by our salon and the beauty industry. We collect salon waste and keep hazardous and biodegradable materials out of BC landfills. Items such as used colour tubes, chemicals, foils and even the hair itself can now be diverted from the landfill. In fact we are able to now divert over 98% of our salon waste.

Among the items we recycle include:

  • Colour tubes and lids

  • Highlighting foils

  • Bobby pins

  • Developer bottles

  • All paper products, including food containers

  • All numbered and soft plastics and all plastics

  • All of our unused hair colour kept out of the water system

  • All hair swept up after cutting

  • All paper towels are composted

  • All packing and shipping materials

  • All expired batteries, lite bulbs and old hair appliances.

To help offset the cost of having these items collected and recycled we have added a $3.00 eco-fee to each client’s final bill. We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response from those who visit the salon and learn of our efforts to keep our salon as “green” as possible.

Our goal is simple: Love Your Hair!
