By being a Green Salon Collective member, your stylist and the salon are saying NO to landfill and YES to recycling.
We recycle waste cut hair, and metals from any colour service you may have - like foils and colour tubes.
These items are not usually recycled, and we think it's pretty great that you're thinking about joining Green Salon Collective and saying NO to landfill
Want to know what happens to your waste hair once you leave the salon?
Hair adsorbs oil and pollutants, even in water. We've used waste salon hair in this way to clean up oil spills and polluted rivers across the UK and Ireland.
Gardening & Composting
Hair is rich in Nitrogen, making it an ideal fertiliser for local and industrial composting, our composters turn hair into compost for British Agriculture.
In collaboration with Biohm, waste human hair was combined with their binding 'Orb' to create a particle-board like material, as well as being used to grow mycelium
Make Green Profits with Green Salon Collective!
By charging a small, optional, £1 Green Fee, you will more than cover your costs (many of our salons make a profit, and only 50% of your clients would have to pay the sustainable fee to be cost-neutral) as well as attracting new clients and standing out in your area.
