Holly Santelli, owner of Ash and Willow Eco Salon and Beauty Apothecary, not only tries to make her salon sustainable, but has also made it a core value – considering both environmental and social impacts with every decision she makes. Eco-friendly practices are what sets her salon apart.
Ash and Willow is certified sustainable Green Circle Salon - a program that helps them recycle up to 95 percent of the salon waste including hair, color tubes, foil, aerosol cans, and virtually anything used in the salon.
In 2018, Ash and Willow recycled 615 lbs of solid waste and 65 lbs of liquid waste in addition to actively using the regular city recycling program which is not included in the numbers.
The salon incorporated reclaimed wood and brick into their décor, restored the old original ceiling from 1920, uses high efficiency water heaters, air conditioning, and LED lighting which all contribute to their sustainability. Eco Heads are used on shampoo bowls which help clean and conserve water and glass beverage cups are used for serving coffee made in a reusable glass coffee pot.
Additionally, the hair care brands used are passionate about sustainability and use green practices.
Ash and Willow Eco Salon and Beauty Apothecary clients leave with not only beautiful hair, but also the satisfaction of knowing that they too are making a difference by patronizing a local business that practices sustainability benefiting our world for generations to come.
