We are a proud Sustainable Salons member! 

Through this nationwide program we recycle 95% of our salon waste. 

Here’s how they do it:

  • All hair clippings get turned into hair booms to soak up oil spills 
  • All our plastic bottles and product containers as well as soft plastics are recycled into garden furniture
  • All our foil and metal colour tubes are recycled and sold - aluminium is infinitely recyclable - and the proceeds are given to programs to feed the homeless
  • Donated ponytail of 20cm or longer are sent to The Alopecia Foundation to make wigs
  • All paper and cardboard is recycled
  • You can bring your empty product bottles back to us to be recycled 
  • Sustainable Salons charges $3 per client for this service and this is added to your appointment

In addition to this we do what we can everyday to minimise our impact

  • We compost our food waste
  • We buy refills for in salon products and cleaning products
  • We use Eco Heads Shower Heads at the basin to reduce water use
  • We air dry our towels
  • We use grey water safe, eco friendly cleaning products
  • We stock products that use post consumer recycled plastic for their bottles
  • The majority of our products are vegan and cruelty free
  • We use compostable bags instead of plastic wrap where needed 
  • We use loose leaf teas and offer plant based milk
  • We offer refills on some of our hair care products

We are always looking for new ways to do better. There is no planet B!
