We Are Sustainable!

Together,  we’re  on  the  journey  to  zero  waste!

Your visit to the salon includes a small $2 green fee service fee that supports our on going commitment to reduce our ecological footprint, achieve zero waste, support charitable causes and implement environmentally sustainable practises in all thar we do here

  • 40% – Resource collection and redirection
  • 25% – Implementing green practices
  • 20% – Supporting the community
  • 10% – Researching recycling solutions
  • 5% – Awareness and education

When you list out all the benefits, we like to think the planet is worth a tiny $2!

95% of the resources used during your service will be rescued from landfill and sent for repurposing, thanks to our partnership with sustainable salons

What’s the purpose?

–  All the proceeds gained from recycling the salons metals will be donated to not for profit community-based organisation that do a killer job helping the community

–  Once our tools reach their end of life, they will be broken down and all valuable parts will be repurposed

– Plastic packaging is sent to specialist local plastics recyclers where it’s cleaned and made into outdoor furniture, landscape supplies and new product packaging, keeping it in circulation and out of our oceans!

– All aluminium, foil, colour tubes, cardboard, paper, magazines, razor blades, unwanted tools and select disposables are sold for recycling, and the proceeds are donated to Oz Harvest and Kiwi Harvest to provide meals for hungry people. A full head of foils provides a quarter of a meal to someone in need!

– Hair clippings are collected from the salon floor and stuffed into stockings to make Hair Booms that can one day help clean up oil spills along our coastlines! Hair is also repurposed in local community gardens for composting or used in sustainable art installations to educate the community.

– All collected ponytails 20cm or longer are distributed to charitable organisations to create wigs for those suffering from cancer or alopecia. Sustainable Salons is the largest donor of ponytails in the Southern Hemisphere!

– Sustainable Salons is the first company to recycle excess chemicals in the salon industry. These are pooled and sent to chemical recycling plants where they’re neutralised and turned into recycled water used in roadworks and construction.

Thankyou for joining us in being apart of helping our environment!
