Ocean Waste Plastic

OWP Kevin Murphy

Kevin Murphy has teamed up with Danish company PackTech, to help eliminate plastic waste in the world’s oceans by using OWP which will create a huge impact. PackTech continually tries to find new ways towards a more sustainable future for the environment and the packaging industry, and OWP (Ocean Waste Plastic) is one of them. 

https://www.oceanwasteplastics.com/copy-of-a-case-story

  • Over 360 tons of OWP are used to produce almost 14,5 millions of Kevin Murphy components each year.
  • Kevin Murphy will save the planet for over 360 tons of new plastic each year.
  • For every Kevin Murphy product sold, there is removed in average over 45 g. of plastic from the oceans.
  • The plastic (OWP) used to Kevin Murphy packaging equals 14,6 million water bottles from the ocean.

Why has Kevin chosen to utilize OWP?

“Every minute of every day, one garbage truck full of plastic is dumped into our oceans, which has led to over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently littering our beautiful ocean and affecting its sea life. Every piece of plastic that has ever been made – ever – is still here on our planet, and currently only 9% of our world’s plastics are recycled. At KEVIN.MURPHY, we’re committed to changing these statistics and reducing plastic in the best way we know how: by cleaning up our oceans and reclaiming that plastic to package our hair products in order to create a circular supply chain.

As a manufacturer, I don’t want to be responsible for those horrible images of plastic in our oceans. I want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Beginning with our square packaging, we will start rolling out our new packaging next year, continuing into 2020. We call this responsible packaging, and we encourage you to get involved. Our aim is to start an industry-wide conversation around safe plastic disposal while raising the standard for product packaging.

Sustainability has always been part of the DNA of our company. From the products we make to the partnerships we keep, the brand has always been at forefront of the sustainability movement from the very beginning and making the switch to OWP is something we are deeply committed to.

Thank you for your support of KEVIN.MURPHY and for joining us in recognising the NEED FOR CHANGE.”

FINALIST for EXCELLENCE AWARD

The Association of Washington Business (based in Olympia, WA) represents business interests of members large and small throughout Washington State. Last year, AWB was a key partner in the fight to keep booth rental cosmetology and small business alive in the 2019 legislative session. Emerson Salon worked in tandem with them and 1000’s of cosmetologists and their supporters to push back against 6-8 bills which would have dramatically altered how self employed/independently run cosmetologists do business.

Emerson Salon is 1 of 3 finalists in the Washington Advance Award. This award “recognizes a business that has had a significant cause-oriented impact in its sector and/or community and contributed to the advancement of the economy.” On November 20th, 2019 the Evening of Excellence will be held at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, WA to celebrate business excellence in WA State.

Co- owner, D’Arcy Harrison, attended hearings & testified on behalf of the free market alive. Eliminating booth rental would hand the employee based salons all the market share and essentially, halting competition from a rival business model. D’Arcy is also heavily involved with leading the efforts to educate and advocate for small business cosmetology in WA state through press releases, marketing videos, phone scripts, bill breakdowns, a statewide association and more. In addition, Emerson Salon supports its local economy in Capitol Hill by continuing to support LGBTQ+ by creating a safe space for that community and others in Seattle, WA.

Proud EnviroStars Green Business Partner!

Emerson Salon is very proud to become an EnviroStars green business partner!

  • Running our salon business sustainably is healthier for us, our clients, and the planet.

  • Since D’Arcy and Lancer took over as co-owners of Emerson Salon, we have done our best to operate sustainably. Last year, we replaced our shampoo sink hoses by partnering with Eco Heads, and recently installed low-flow aerators in our bathroom and chemical sink faucets to reduce our water use.
  • We continue to order our salon supplies according to our environmentally-preferable purchasing policy to reduce our impact on the environment, and have made our building more sustainable by replacing all of our lighting with LEDs over time.
  • This month, we acquired dual compartment garbage/recycling bins and started composting our paper towels. We love learning about all the things we can incorporate in our business to become even greener!
