An east Windsor hair salon has gone green — and we're not talking funky new hair dye.
Last month, Salon Cure at 6525 Wyandotte St. E. became what is believed to be the first salon in the area to sign up with a company in Toronto to recycle waste that cannot be recycled in a blue box.
"We noticed the impact immediately," said owner Christine Withington. "Before, we'd have Herby Curby's full of garbage and today we put out less than a full bag of garbage," she said.
Withington's salon is one of 1,000 salons across North America to sign with Green Circle Salons, which take used foil from hair colouring procedures, metal hair colour tubes, left over hair dye and even the hair itself.
