We're thrilled to share that, thanks to our member salons, freelancers and anyone in the collective, we've diverted over 100 tonnes of hairdressing waste from landfill or incineration!
All the hair, salon metals and other salon waste that would have gone to landfill or incineration has been diverted into recycling or other useful products.
To put that into context, 100 tonnes is equal to...
- A Boeing 757 Commercial Plane
- 100 VW Beetle Cars
- A Space Shuttle
- A Single Story House
- 'The Bean' sculpture in Chicago
- More than 10 elephants
- 100 Grand Pianos
So, a big THANK YOU to all our incredible Green Salon Collective members for your support, we truly couldn't have done this without you.
Whether you send us a box of recycling once a week, or once a year, you've contributed to making the hairdressing industry more sustainable and more circular, and your salon's hair waste has been recycled in over 10 different ways.
If you want to join the movement and help us get to the next 100 tonnes, email us hello@greensaloncollective or give us a call on 0333 577 6967.
