PAUL FRASCA, CO-FOUNDER, SUSTAINABLE SALONS AUSTRALIA (SSA)
Sustainable Salons Australia is a unique social enterprise that specialises in collecting up to 95% of the salon bin and redirecting all material for reuse, recycling and repurposing solutions. Once a salon professional, 10 years ago SSA co-founder Paul Frasca put down the scissors and ignited a sustainability movement instead. Now with SSA, Paul Frasca and Ewelina Soroko are changing the way the consumer thinks about their next salon service… and it’s having a huge impact! Paul will be speaking about the overall influence of Sustainable Salons to date over the last seven years, changes in sustainability in our industry, and where SSA is heading in the future.
Join us at the AHC Industry Day and together let’s stand for hairdressing and barbering as exceptional career pathways that offer engaging, forward-thinking and flexible qualifications, and a sustainable future for our industry.
