Here at The Root Salon, our team is always working hard to be a highly sustainable business not just financially but environmentally too. Today on the blog we are honoring our Mother Earth by talking about our environmental practices and why they are important to us. Find out why it is truly a daily commitment that our entire team is dedicated to and the systems we use to make this goal a reality.

We use Vish for salon chemical waste control to limit waste and help keep color cost reasonable. What is Vish?
Vish is a powerful, yet simple and intuitive, system that captures information using a Bluetooth enabled scale connected to the Vish Color Bar app. Information is communicated to both the Vish Front Desk app for a smooth and seamless checkout and the Vish Dashboard for analysis. Clever, isn’t it?

For several years now we have been a partner of Green circle Salons’ recycling solution for salons and spas. Created by its Founder and CEO alongside beauty industry leaders, their award-winning program empowers salons to offset their emissions and recover up to 95% of their beauty waste. That includes previously unrecoverable materials and hard-to-recycle items like hair clippings, foils, excess hair color, aerosol cans, and color tubes.

The companies’ goal is to help salons and spas be green, build revenue, gain clients, and save money in a way that’s ethical and simple. They do that while also ensuring that their own operations and practices are carbon neutral and sustainable.

We are blessed to be able to say that we are part of Local First Arizona’s Green Certified Business group and we are proud to have made the cut to have been accepted into this small but elite group. Local First Arizona’s sustainability programs focus on both businesses and the community, helping local businesses prepare for the future by finding solutions to lessen their impact and empowering citizens and businesses to play a role in making Arizona a resilient state.
