An exclusive Foil Me collection has just launched; collaborating with the Green Salon Collective (GSC) to create a bespoke, eco-conscious colour foil.
Foil Me was originally created to give hair artists an easier, more luxurious working experience, offering exclusively designed foils that combine the wow factor with high quality and meticulous detail. A truly unique collaboration, this new design incorporates unique and striking line Illustrations by GSC’s Natalie Hapeshi and graphic design prowess by Foil Me’s Chelsea Winter in composing the layout, colour selection and design of both of the foil sheets and box. Each eye-catching foil in watermelon pink and cyan visually depicts the nine simple steps that GSC uses to recycle all salon metals, with a call to action to #SplashYaTrash.
The matching box explains these steps in more detail, also revealing that the product is made from a percentage of recycled aluminium foil and is 100% recyclable. Additionally, information is provided on the carbon footprint of the product, with GSC vowing to offset this through deforestation projects.
The GSC collaboration is a culmination of months of planning and design, resulting in a product that not only looks beautiful, but also increases awareness of recycling solutions for salon waste. Additionally, both GSC and Foil Me have pledged to donate a meal per box of foil via FoodCycle, a charity that creates nourishing meals from surplus food for those in need.
“Working with Fry and the Green Salon Collective (GSC) team was a highlight of being the co-owner and creative director of Foil Me so far!” says Emily Ciardiello, CEO and Creative Director of Foil Me.
“When GSC members asked us to produce a foil, our first thought was to approach Foil Me,” says Fry Taylor, Green Salon Collective founder. “I’m a long-time admirer of the brand, with its high-quality products, close attention to detail and strong ethics that run through the company, from the production of products to how they are sold. Emily, the founder of Foil Me and her team have been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to many more collaborations.”
