In our pursuit of carbon negativity, we've introduced the Beauty Bottle Recycling Exchange. Guests are able to bring their used beauty bottles, recycle them in our designated bins, & earn Gordon Salon rewards points. Available at ALL locations.
We are only able to accept recyclable bottles listed with a '1' or '2'.
As of 2021 All Gordon Salons are carbon Negative, meaning we actively reduce more carbon in the atmosphere than our operations create. We have planted over 1,225 oak trees & plugs in the Lake County Forest Preserves. We purchase our energy from Solar farms. We have limited our paper use and production, made permanent improvements to reduce water waste & run our own recycling program. We do Walks For Water, beach cleanups, tree plantings, buckthorn cleanups and since our inception have raised over $100,000 in donations for the Alliance for the Great Lakes, more than any other salon in the Midwest.
Aveda uses 100% wind & Solar Power for production, sources their ingredients with fair trade practices, employing, partnering & supporting thousands of indigenous people; including doubling & defending the protected tribal lands of the Yawanawan tribe from Amazonian Loggers. They also were the first beauty company to align with the Valdez principles for corporate environmental responsibility & are the vanguard of the organic/plant based cosmetics industry.
Your purchase supports clean water for all, renewable energy, sustainable ingredients, sustainable harvesting, reducing monocropping, reducing plastic waste and supporting
indigenous peoples livelihoods & education.
We all live better, happier lives when we work together towards a common goal, a healthier planet and a tangible, respectful relationship with our planet. The Gordon Family commits to uphold these values and expand on them to remain a leader in ecologically conscious beauty practices.
