GRAVITY SALON is proud to be a GREEN CIRCLE CERTIFIED SALON
Hair salons produce a huge amount of waste every year, Certified Green Circle Salons are now recycling and repurposing things like shampoo bottles, colour tubes and foil wraps. Their goal is to make the entire salon industry sustainable by 2020
One of the program’s more unique aspects is how it goes about re-using all of the cut hair from clients. The hair is sent to a Burnaby warehouse and is made into hair booms which can be used to mop up oil spills.
Hair, it turns out, attracts oil and repels water better than almost any other substance. Some of the hair booms made by Green Circle Salons were used to soak up the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Three thousand hair booms are stuffed and on standby in the Burnaby warehouse in the event of a local spill. The booms are being made by female inmates in Maple Ridge and they’re free to anyone who wants them.

Dear Gravity Friends, Family and Clients,
With a society that is more focused on preserving the environment than ever before, the salon industry is stepping up its efforts to become as eco-friendly as possible. Here at Gravity, waste reduction has been a priority since we opened our doors over 5 years ago. Whether it be using reusable mugs, to recycling foils, colour cans and virtually anything else possible or even using machine washable hand towels in our washrooms, Gravity Salon Professionals has always made a conscious effort to protect the environment.
Our next step is to expand our efforts by becoming a certified Green Circle Salon. With this certification we will be able to recycle even more waste than we already have been. What does this mean? Green Circle Salons is a special recycling/repurposing program that ensures hair, foils, color tubes, plastics, papers, and chemicals are diverted out of our landfills and water systems. That is 90-95% of our salons waste! That’s right! Even the hair we sweep from the floor is repurposed. 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 and we are proud to be a part of this Green Initiative to Revolutionize the Industry. In order to be a part of this sustainable initiative we will be adding $1.50 to each visit to Gravity Salon. Reducing your carbon footprint and having a great hair day all rolled into one. The impact that we have is KEEPS PEOPLE AND THE PLANET BEAUTIFUL!
We hope that you will support us in keeping Gravity Salon Professionals environmentally friendly and reducing our eco-footprint while still offering the same great services! For any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us; and for further information on the Green Circle Initiative follow the link to the Green Circle website to see everything that this great organization has to offer: www.ontario.greencirclesalons.ca

Comment:” Gravity Salon is so much more than a hairdressing salon. From Nicole Murphy at the desk, to Ivo, the salon owner, and all of the stylists, at Gravity you will find a group of amazing human beings who just happen to be excellent hairstylists as well. There is a personal touch, hospitality and excellent customer service. The dynamic between my stylist Jamie Dennis and me as a customer is key to the outcome which is always wonderful. She is an intuitive listener and interpreter and she works together with me at every appointment to keep my hair in the best possible shape. Ivo Tiberio and Team, I am so grateful that Barrie is within driving distance. You are the greatest!”
