We can’t do everything, but we can all do something.

Green Salon Collective

We are proud to be part of the ‘Green Salon Collective’.

This incredible company are committed to stopping salon waste from entering landfill.

The Green Salon Collective take away the hair we cut and the metals we use that the usual recycling wouldn’t do. The hair is reused and recycled in multiple ways, it can be made into booms that help absorb oil from our waterways, be added to gardeners composting mixes, or if it’s long enough, be donated to wig making charities.

The metals we need to recycle are contaminated with colour products and chemicals meaning they cannot get recycled with the local council. The GSC take our metals away, they remove the chemicals and then recycle the metal back into foils that we can then use for colouring! They call this their ‘Full Circle’ foil.

They then donate 100% of any money raised from recycling our materials or new products made from our waste. Every month The Green Salon Collective support these following charities:

Scrummi towels

We also use Eco-friendly, biodegradable, disposable towels.

This reduces the amount of water, energy and chemicals we have to use as we are not having to launder hundreds of towels a week! We are researched the best disposable towels around and there was one clear winner… Scrummi towels!

100% Natural – 100% Biodegradable.

Their towels contain no hidden plastics and will biodegrade to compost in 8-12 weeks! 95% of Scrummi’s total shipping distance is done by rail and sea, which has the lowest environmental impact of any mode of transport
