Upcycled Fashion for a Green Cause

Recently, the Meleesa the Salon team got creative with trash for Green Circle’s Earth Month recycling contest. The team put together a fashionable recycled look for a sustainable photoshoot. To create the accessories and look they used Starbucks™ cups for flowers, cardboard filler to make tree leaves, pink trash bags, paper, aluminum cans, and bubble wrap to make jelly fish, all from our daily collected waste. The results where BEAUTIFUL!!

At Meleesa the Salon, we are dedicated to environmentally conscious practices, that’s why we are a certified Green Circle salon. Green Circle partners with salons around the country to recycle and repurpose hair, foils, colour-tubes, papers and plastics and divert excess hair chemicals from being rinsed down the drain. As part of Green Circle’s network of sustainable salons, Meleesa the salon recycles 120 pounds of trash a year. Our excess hair clippings are even repurposed into booms to mop up oil spills.

The winner of the contest will get a forest planted in their name.
