Ellensburg’s First No Waste Salon

Mangos Salon sets the standard for no waste salons in the community.

Ellensburg, Wash. [1/22/2020]: Mangos Salon is now Green Circle Certified and encouraging other salons to join them. Green Circle is North America’s only sustainable salon option, allowing salons to recover up to 95% of what they once considered waste, including hair, hair colors, foils, color tubes, aerosol cans, papers and plastics. According to their website, greencirclesalons.com, Green Circle has empowered salons across America to divert over six million pounds of waste from landfills and waterways.

“After visiting a salon that was partnered with Green Circle, we looked at how much waste we had from just one color service and it was alarming,” said Stephanie Castillo, Manager of Mangos Salon. “That was the last straw. We got the process going shortly after.”

Now that Mangos has taken the pledge to be environmentally friendly, they are encouraging other salons to follow suit.

“In the United States, salons produce 43 thousand pounds of waste per day. If we can control our industry of over 50 salons in Kittitas County, we can make a big difference,” Castillo said.
