Our vision is to raise the standard of the hair and beauty industry by enabling salons to become more ethical and sustainable environments for not only the salon, but for the stylists and salon guests too. 

Our unique recycling programme together with our education and accreditation programmes enable salons and other businesses in the hair and beauty industry to gain new like-minded clients by becoming  true, ethical, sustainable businesses that turn the waste in your bins into meaningful wins.

Every item of salon waste can be used again to benefit our industry, community and the environment. 

The sad truth is that mixed recycling does not work. It causes cross-contamination within the bin bags, causing many salon items to be sent to landfill. ​

By providing a circular economy for salons, Green Salon Collective are the solution.

So far we have saved 72 tons of salon waste from landfill, and 642 KGs of waste from industry events. We aim to have saved 200 tons by the end of 2022.

Circular Economy

Our industry has been operating in a linear economy for far too long. Traditionally, all hairdressing waste is sent to landfill and very little (if any!) gets recycled. There are no benefits for anyone.

The circle in our logo represents the circular economy that we are creating within our industry. With every single decision we make, the first thought is always, "How will this benefit our industry, the environment and/or the community?"

When we deal with your waste we are always thinking about how we can reuse, repurpose or recycle this material rather than send it off to landfill. With this mindset, we can create a circular economy with each waste stream that you give us. 

How we contribute 

to a circular economy



Sending waste to landfill is such an outdated concept because there are so many ways all of our waste can be put to work again. We are committed to keeping all hairdressing waste out of landfill.



We work with local businesses and organisations to ensure that each hairdressing waste stream is converted into something useful.



Sometimes our services turn a profit but we are not interested in keeping that for ourselves. We use all of our profits to support local charities such as FoodCycle and Haircuts4Homeless. We also financially support tree planting efforts with  sales from our Return Boxes.
