Create a Salon “Green Team” with Coordinator to Spearhead Efforts

At least one salon employee must be given the responsibility to carry out environmentally friendly practices at the salon or the initiative will fizzle out, according to a newly released white paper by the National Association of Eco-Friendly Salons & Spas (NAEFSS).

At least one salon employee must be given the responsibility to carry out environmentally friendly practices at the salon or the initiative will fizzle out, according to a newly released white paper by the National Association of Eco-Friendly Salons & Spas (NAEFSS).

Titled “Great Strides in Sustainable Business Practices Reveal a Positive Outlook for Salon & Spa Sustainability” and researched by NAEFSS founder Tamara Jercha, the paper goes on to say, “Creating a ‘Green Team’ is a great way to start, but…there must be a specific person willing to spearhead efforts and move forward with the strategies agreed upon as part of their job responsibilities. This person will monitor the progress of new initiatives, point out the successes as well as challenges in implementing new strategies, encourage and engage staff participation, and help the salon/spa stay on track toward meeting its sustainability goals.”

The white paper also addresses the roles of beauty manufacturers, educators, schools, and salon and spa owners in creating a green business.
