How would your team describe you? A soft-touch


Why did you set up Eco towels? As a hairdresser I wanted to explore better ways of doing things, reducing our impact and saving the planet.


What is an Eco towel? It's a non-woven biodegradable disposable alternative to a traditional cotton towel.


How absorbent are they? They can absorb 7 times their weight - this is what confuses people when they first start using it...


Can I throw EcoTowels in the general waste?

Yes, you can, and they will degrade over 4-6 months in a landfill that has the right environmental conditions - of course, we would prefer it if you reuse our towels.


What are EcoTowels made of?

Eco Towels are made from wood pulp & natural viscose fibre, there are no plastics, toxins or chemicals in our towels.


What is your favourite "eco" product that isn't a hairdressing product? I'm struggling with this -- my bicycle does that count? I don't really buy things... Only fruit and plants!


Who is your "eco-hero"? At the moment, Green salon collective -- ha ha -- I just love that you are trying to clean up my dirty industry.


What's the best or worst environmental statistic you've seen recently?

Best : The world starting to heal itself during COVID-19 -- Worst : Other than the sea pollution -- I'm not sure our councils are recycling the waste we segregate at home...
