Sustainability and wellness event launched


Phorest Salon Software has announced the latest addition to its event portfolio by hosting an industry event with a focus on sustainability, wellness and mental health.

The Conscious Hair & Beauty event will see industry professionals sharing their journeys and knowledge on the topic of sustainability and wellness. Every year, plastic cards contribute to 50million tonnes of petroleum-based plastic waste that ends up in landfills and incinerators globally.

With damage to the environment and an increase in plastic waste an ever-growing concern, the event has been established to help attendees become more knowledgeable about products used. Organisers say that actions and habits are key in discovering how salons can make friendlier choices for the environment.

Key speakers include owner of fully eco salon Mimosa Beauty, Jennie Lawson; one of London's leading experts in wellness and mindfulness, Natalie C Morrison; owners of the first carbon neutral salon Anne Veck Salon, Anne Veck and Keith Mellen, and professor at the University of Southampton's Business School,  teaching and researching in the area of sustainability, ethics and corporate social responsibility, Denise Baden.

The event will take place at London's OXO2 on Sunday 18th August. To find out more and to purchase tickets visit the website here.
