Normalizing Climate Conversation πŸŒΈπŸ’‡β€β™€οΈ

There probably is an unwritten consensus among people around the world on the type of chitchat our hairdressers have with us. It's almost always, small talk! And we love that! πŸ’‡β€β™€οΈ
But what if there were more to it? What if we had a real conversation for once? beyond weather? Perhaps about climate?
Paloma Garcia is a hairdresser ready to have some real talk. More than 400 hairdressers have attended workshops as part of a project called "A Brush With Climate" with her. During the sessions, hairdressers hear the basics of climate science and get to role-play how conversations might go. They also take one of the posters back to their own salons. Her initiative is amazing as it is sometimes difficult to talk about the climate crisis but we need to normalize it only then we all would be able to find a solution. The first step is always acceptance!
β€œWe’re relationship builders,” Garcia says. β€œWe suggest some easy ways to introduce climate to the conversation and the biggest one is definitely the weather. But we encourage all the hairdressers to make it their own story.” She also reports really good feedback from her regular guests who try to have the conversation in their circles and also even try to make some eco-friendly changes! πŸ’š

    Salons and barbershops are areas where many people frequent, a huge opportunity lies in here to normalize climate change conversations.

      Yes I second this... The more people talk about a problem the easier it becomes to find a solution... Talking about climate change creates awareness and creates a platform for ideas and solutions to be tabled
