We all love the hairdressing industry but we also know it has an ugly side, too.
We freely pour toxic hair colour down the sink.
We throw out used foils and colour tubes in the regular bin given they mostly can't be recycled.
We use more plastic and paper than the other shops on the high street.
We even throw valuable hair cuttings into the bin.
Green Salon Collective is here to change all this!!!
Founded by environmental experts, hairdressers and eco campaigners, they are the original authority on salon sustainability throughout the UK and Ireland.
They recycle, compost and recover: hair, used foils, empty colour tubes, chemicals, PPE, plastic, paper and even salon towels.
Beyond providing each of their members with starter kits, marketing material, next-day collections and ongoing support, they also offer share useful education material on all matters regarding sustainability with the whole hairdressing industry.
Their accreditation programs demonstrate to clients, employees and the wider industry that those accredited businesses go above and beyond when it comes to looking after both people and planet.
100% of any money raised from recycling your raw materials or new products made from your waste goes to charity. By recycling their profits, every month they can support charities and organisations that are close to our hearts.
These currently include the following: FoodCycle - Haircuts 4 The Homeless - Mossy Earth.
