Horst Rechelbacher - Green Circle Salon Membership
The Horst Rechelbacher Foundation + Green Circle Salon Membership
In 1978, Horst Rechelbacher founded the Aveda Corporation, a global plant-based cosmetic company, & ushered a new consciousness into the world of beauty.
Horst’s entrepreneurial vision is to create successful businesses in partnership with nature. As he puts it, “Business can be a solution to our planet’s crisis rather than the problem. We are at the threshold of the Sustainable Evolution, and I believe it will be even greater than the industrial revolution. It is a very exciting time for innovative thinkers and future-minded entrepreneurs, who I call ‘Ecopreneurs.’
In partnership with Green Circle Salons (GCS) we are introducing a membership for salons, spas and barbershops to join a movement to help the salon industry reduce its environmental footprint and provide options for consumers seeking genuine green options in salon care.
