ABOUT GREEN SALON COLLECTIVE

Our key goal is to recycle and reuse hairdressing salon waste, focusing on specialist items like hair and metal, so that your business can become a more sustainable salon. We use hair in over 10 different ways, including cleaning up oil spills, and donate all our profits from recycling metals. We compost salon towels. We generate energy from chemical waste and PPE. So far, we've diverted over 100 tons of hairdressing salon waste from landfill or incineration. 

Join us to become a more eco-friendly hair salon...

WE RECYCLE OUR PROFITS, TOO!

We believe in making a difference where it counts which is why we choose to share the love. 

All profits raised from selling commodities (eg. your recycled metals) go to FoodCycle and Haircuts4Homeless

We also work with Mossy Earth to plant a tree on your behalf for every Returns Box that you purchase.
