Let’s GLO Together: Keep A Greener Salon with Marian Cardozo 



We hate to admit it, but the beauty industry is a major culprit when it comes to waste. With the large volume of our beloved products, comes an even larger amount of packaging, gloves, foils and more ending up in bins and landfills. 

We sat down with Marian Cardozo, a Sustainability Account Manager at g2 revolution and GLO Recycling, and a long-time beauty lover, to explore insights and ways to make our salons more environmentally friendly. She busts myths about there not being enough time or resources to really “go green.”

“All of our programs are based around compliance and regulations, but also about giving the customer the right information so they can later deliver to their teams, and later explain to their clients. If you don’t know that your business is having a social impact and an environmental impact on its community, that’s a challenge.”

From cut hair and color tubes to old hair dryers and more, Marian shares how GLO helps keep these items out of landfills. With how big the universe of recycling is, Marian breaks it down for us to show that making our salons eco-friendly is as easy and rewarding as picking up our favorite pair of shears.

“We all have a responsibility when we create something to know what’s going to happen to it, what’s going to be its end of life.”  

Today’s beauty professionals want to know not only the why but also the how, how fast, and how soon they can create more sustainable salons. It starts with baby steps and understanding that the journey to greener salons is just at your fingertips once you take that first step.

In this episode, we explore the services and resources GLO Recycling offers to assist stylists, beauty pros and salon owners in enhancing their green thumbs. Plus, you’ll learn the secret of what GLO does with all the hair our clients say goodbye to.
