WHY GREEN SALON COLLECTIVE?
MIXED RECYCLING DOES NOT WORK
Separation is the key
We all love the hairdressing industry but we also know it has an ugly side too. We freely pour toxic hair colour down the sink, throw out used foils and colour tubes in the regular bin given they mostly can't be recycled, we use more plastic and paper than the other shops on the high street and we even throw valuable hair cuttings into the bin.
GREEN SALON COLLECTIVE are here to change this.
Founded by environmental experts, hairdressers & eco campaigners, GREEN SALON COLLECTIVE is the original authority on salon sustainability throughout the UK and Ireland wide.
With our recycling system, we will recycle almost every single piece of "rubbish" and turn it into something new. We recycle and recover hair, used foils, empty colour tubes, chemicals, PPE, plastic & Paper. We also sell 100% plastic-free plant-based gloves and the worlds only recyclable face masks.
We provide each salon with the separation kits, in-salon marketing, daily collections, ongoing support and ideas and education on all matters regarding sustainability.
Another thing we are proud to recycle is our profits.
100% of any money raised from recycling your raw materials or new products made from your waste goes to charity. By recycling our profits, every month we can support charities and organisations that are close to our hearts. These currently include the following:
Foodcycle - Haircuts 4 The Homeless - Tree Planting.
The biggest winner here is that we reward the planet. We are diverting easily recyclable materials that are currently being sent to landfill. These are materials such as aluminium foil which is a commodity that can be recycled an infinite amount of times. We'll also recycle your hair to ensure that it will be used to either help adsorb oil from our waterways, be added into gardeners composting mixes, or if it's long enough, be donated to wig making charities. There is absolutely no reason why either of these materials should be thrown away as general waste just to end up in the ground.
To join the collective, head over to our shop section, choose the materials you wish to recycle, and then let us take care of the rest. If you have any questions, we'd love to hear from you. You can either reach out to us via the connect page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be in touch.
We look forward to welcoming you on board.
