Green is in and Hair Asia is sounding the call for the Philippine hair industry.
On Nov. 19, “Salon Spectacular 2013,” the annual event attended by thousands of members of the hair and makeup industry, Hair Asia will shine the spotlight on the environment.
“The destructive onslaught of rains like the recent Super Typhoon Odette, counteracting with soaring heat waves are neither natural nor coincidental,” Hair Asia president and organizer Evelyn Alvaran-Cruz says.
“We’ve abused the environment through our unfriendly practices in terms of waste disposal and we have to collectively act to stop and, if possible, reverse the damage we’ve caused. We are all to blame, and in the same way, we are all responsible for making amends,” Cruz continues.
Through “Salon Spectacular 2013,” Cruz intends to promote the critical shift to environmentally sustainable practices in salons all over the country.
Despite the serious tone of the theme, Cruz assures attendees that this year’s event will not lack in exciting highlights that the Hair Asia events have come to be known for.
