GSC ACCREDITATION


Accreditation with meaning.

We have partnered with The Liminality to develop unique accreditation programs for salons and other businesses in the hair and beauty industry.

Achieving Green Salon Collective accreditation demonstrates to clients, staff and the wider industry that your business goes above and beyond when it comes to looking after people and planet. 

Salon Accreditation, £199

Hair salons as well as any co-working spaces in the hair and beauty industry are invited to demonstrate their commitments to sustainability.

Freelancer Accreditation, £99

Freelancers working in the hair and beauty industry are invited to join a rapidly growing list of entrepreneurs that run their businesses with respect for both people and planet.

Guidance

If for any reason you do not make the pass mark, Raechel will offer you personalised guidance on what further steps you need to take to earn the accreditation.

Example questions:

Staff & Customers

Does your salon have adequate systems and policies in place to welcome staff and customers from all different backgrounds and abilities?

Suppliers

Do you take environmental and social impacts into account when choosing suppliers for everything from the hair products you offer, to laundry services, cleaners and building contractors?
