GARBO CARES ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT
Garbo was Austin's 5th business to sign up for the GREEN ENERGY program to power our business.
Garbo did not have access to on-site recycling bins in our building complex until 2016 (which we worked hard to change!), Our staff had for years taken on the personal responsibility of recycling Garbo paper, plastic, glass and cardboard at their homes. Go Garbonians!

Our roots grow deep because we place social, spiritual, and environmental values at the foundation of our business. Our core is strengthened through a well-established sense of family, ceaseless commitment to excellence, and joy in connecting love, beauty, and environment. The style we define and personalize in our clientele reveals their inner beauty by bringing it to the surface. Come to Garbo and "Discover the Beauty Within." Recycling is just the tip of the iceberg.
