What Does It Mean To Be A Green Circle Certified Salon?
At Casa PRANA we divert up to 95% of our salon waste from landfills and waterways by collecting, recycling & repurposing hair clippings, used foils, color-tubes, excess hair color, papers, plastics, glass and spa waste.
What does Green Circle Salons do with our waste?
Once we collect hair, paper, plastic, metals, and chemicals, we ship it to a Green Circle Salons recycling facility. The foils, color tubes and plastics are then cleaned and recycled, while the chemicals are sent to a chemical-waste plant and turned into reusable energy. The hair that’s being diverted from the landfill are being made into oil-absorbing booms for oil-spill containment by inmates at the Alouette Correctional Centre for Women in Maple Ridge, Canada. They are paid to stuff the hair into used stockings which not only benefits them but also is an amazing resource for oil control.
More than 5,402,700lbs of salon waste has been diverted from landfills and waterways since 2009. Our team at Casa PRANA is very proud to be part of this movement and to help our industry move towards a more sustainable future.

How’s Casa PRANA Making Sure You Get The Best Water Quality In Our Area?
At Casa PRANA we want to make sure you get the cleanest service available and in order to do so we have added ECOHEADS to our salon. ECOHEADS unique filtration-system helps to reduce chlorine, removes sediment, dirt and rust from the water while the tourmaline stones deionize the water and generates negative ions as water goes through making it softer and cleaner. Our shower-heads are 100% recycled and environmentally friendly designed to reduce water and energy usage by 65% vs. a traditional salon shower-head. At Casa PRANA we also care about your health and overall well-being, we only offer the best quality drinking water, free of GenX and other harmful chemicals through a reverse osmosis and balanced ph water system all while eliminating the use of plastic bottles.
