Imagine, if we are honest about how our actions have consequences on people AND the planet. Imagine then, the difference we can make when we work together.
All across North America, Green Circle Members and their salon guests are taking on a new commitment. Salon enPACT Day is about engaging in small but meaningful actions for one day each month, and creating a lasting ripple effect throughout our communities in the process. When hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of people get involved, the results of these small activities will be magnified, creating a positive environmental impact and a shift in our thinking.
"It's beautifully simple to be green", says GCS Founder and CEO Shane Price. "Looking back to 2009, this was our mantra when we started Green Circle. Our goal was to create the simplest, most effective way to reduce landfill waste. With the creation of a new day that celebrates and encourages these planet-friendly actions, never has this been more true. It's beautifully simple to be green!"
