Founding Member Green Circle Salons
Green Circle Salons and the Academy of Excellence have joined forces to keep people AND our planet beautiful!
We are proud to be one of Vancouver Island’s greenest cosmetology schools. We believe that the best solution involves everyone – everyone is involved, and everyone wins!
Through our partnership with Green Circle Salons, we ensure that 100% of hair, foils, colour tubes, papers, plastics and excess chemicals are recycled and repurposed in an environmentally responsible way.
Our planet wins when all of us contribute to this change and are working together to reduce the environmental impact. You, our guests, win by contributing too, and benefiting from a positive green experience. We have implemented a $1.50 Eco Fee per visit. The Planet thanks you.
Eco Carbon Report
We strive to reduce our overall global carbon footprint with our green-friendly salon practices.
We are in partnership with a Harvard student to determine our reduced footprint at the salon.
AOE truly takes care of the environment with their eco-friendly salon practices!
