Pureology Serious Colour Care, a leading professional hair care brand of L’Oréal USA, has formed a global partnership with Green Cross International (GCI) in a pioneering venture to help encourage salon professionals to support sustainable practices and projects. Founded in 1993 by President Mikhail Gorbachev, Green Cross International’s mission is to help face some of the world’s most critical environmental challenges.
“This is an interesting opportunity in many ways,” said Alexander Likhotal, President and CEO of Green Cross International. “Not only do we have the commitment of an important industry, we are also reaching out to thousands via the services sector. The salon professionals hold the power to catalyze public opinion. We look forward to working with Pureology via their extensive network of salon professionals.”
“Pureology’s core values have led us to embrace sustainability as demonstrated by our environmental and eco-friendly practices,” observed Nathalie Tang, Vice President and General Manager of Pureology worldwide. “As part of our global commitment to the environment, we are proud to support the work of Green Cross International. We are determined to encourage salon professionals to take proactive steps to help foster a sustainable future starting with their salon.”
Pureology plans to introduce a series of initiatives to the salon professional community, including PureGreen Membership drives. The membership initiative is a two-tiered program that will allow any person and salon that applies eco-friendly practices to become PureGreen Individual Member or PureGreen Eco-Conscious Salon Member. “This is a dynamic first step of our collaboration,” said Sam Cheow, Assistant Vice President of Pureology worldwide. “Our extensive network of salon professionals can influence and change people’s mindset towards greater respect for our environment.”
Membership costs for individuals and salons are 50€ and 100€ respectively. All the proceeds from the drives will be donated to Green Cross International to support their sustainability efforts. For media persons interested in becoming PureGreen Members, the Pureology sponsorship programme can be contacted through firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to helping generate awareness of Green Cross International projects, Pureology also plans to garner support for select initiatives, especially those relating to the conservation of water, a resource that salon professionals make use of.
