A step-by-step guide to using Green Fees in Your Salon

 To help your salon make money by recycling, or at least cover your salon's hair and metal recycling costs, we recommend charging a Green Fee. It's an optional £1 charge to your clients so that they support your environmental initiatives. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you seamlessly incorporate them into your business model:

  1. Update Salon Software: Begin by updating your salon software to include Green Fees as a line item in your billing system. This ensures that charging the fee becomes an integrated part of your transaction process, making it convenient for both your staff and clients, and you can see exactly how much you're generating.
  2. Share with your clients on social media: Share a few posts on social media to inform your clients about the Green Fee and the reasons behind its introduction. You can use some of the pre-made posts in our Member Downloads that explain the purpose of the fee, emphasizing your commitment to sustainability and how their contributions will make a difference.
  3. Green Fee Strut Card at Reception: Place our Green Fee strut card at your salon's reception area. This card shows easy information about the fee, its purpose, and how clients can choose to participate. Make sure it's easily visible and accessible to all clients as they check in or out of your salon.
  4. Book a Training Call with GSC: Schedule a training call with Green Salon Collective (GSC) to equip your staff with the knowledge and confidence to effectively communicate and charge the Green Fee. GSC can provide valuable insights into the environmental impact of salon operations and help your team understand the importance of the initiative. Book the call here.

        By following these steps, you can smoothly integrate Green Fees into your salon's operations, fostering a culture of environmental responsibility while enhancing your business's sustainability. Remember, communication and education are key to ensuring the success of any new initiative. Keep your clients informed, engaged, and empowered to participate in your salon's green journey.

        So, why wait? Take the first step towards a greener future for your salon by implementing Green Fees today and starting recycling with green salon collective!
