DAVINES – By adhering to LifeGate’s Zero Impact® Project the carbon dioxide emissions generated by the production of the packaging for these lines are offset by the purchasing of carbon credits generated by operations of forests’ creation and protection in Italy, Costa Rica and Madagascar, as established by the Kyoto Protocol. Accordingly, Davines helps in developing the vegetation required to restore oxygen that is extracted from the environment.
Davines, one of the first Italian cosmetique brands to have joined the Zero Impact® projects, has already contributed to offsetting the emissions of 33.558,272 kg (7.828,198 lbs) of CO2. On the occasion of the tenth anniversary from the project beginning, LifeGate has honored Davines with the title of Zero Impact® Ambassador 2014 , because of the Company’s great commitment in the project.

GREEN CIRCLE – Salons produce difficult-to-manage waste often contaminated with bleach, hair color, and other chemicals. A typical salon has high water consumption, high energy usage, and releases chemical by-product down the drain. At the same time many salons strive to be eco-friendly wherever possible, to attract green-minded clients and reduce their footprint. As they create beauty, they make waste.
Green Circle Salons is the beauty industry’s pathway to sustainability. At our core we are innovators, pioneering truly sustainable solutions for repurposing, recycling, and capturing 95% of salon and spa waste since 2009. (excerpt from https://www.greencirclesalons.ca/about/)
