Who we are...
Our aim is to embrace the entire industry from Freelancers, to small and medium sized salons right up to Super Salons. We give you all the power to easily recycle up to 95% of salon waste. Everything from aluminium foils, disposable towels, colour tubes, chemicals, hair, plastic and paper. We even run a PPE Recovery programme.
We are passionate about what we do and to play our part in creating a cleaner environment and enabling others in our industry to do the same.
100% of our profit from selling on waste for recycling goes directly to support the industry's charity, HABB (Hair and Beauty Benevolent) & along the way, we give business and employment to Enham Trust , a leading UK disability charity committed to supporting disabled people to live, work & enjoy life.
We are a recycling program designed for the Hair and Beauty industry to make salon recycling simple.
All our Salon Customers have individual bins into which they are encouraged to place the appropriate waste by type. We try and prevent cross-contamination of any waste type but in a busy Salon, some cross-contamination will inevitably occur such as gloves and clips getting tangled in used foils. (Please refer to our in-Salon video on our website, showing correct practices for segregating different waste types).
Salons are provided with corrugated cardboard returns boxes that themselves are made predominantly from recycled fibres. The contents from each separate bin are placed into the returns box and collected by a Courier who uses eco-start delivery vans and is actively engaged in assessing and rolling out electric and hybrid vans.
Full waste returns and PPE boxes are delivered to Enham 3PL, part of the EnhamTrust, a charity that provides life skill jobs for people with disabilities and provides help and support to over 8,000 disabled clients. www.enhamtrust.org.uk
Enham 3PL sort, clean as necessary and bail the individual waste types ready to be delivered to our specialist recyclers. The empty returns boxes will either get reused or if damaged, sent for recycling
What our club members say
Did you know that more people are searching for sustainable businesses and products!
Haringtons - Winchester
“I jumped at the chance to be joined to a forward-thinking business that really helps us sharpen up our green credentials and minimise the salons impact own waste and our carbon footprint! As soon as we had it placed in Haringtons Winchester the whole process has been super easy- from having the bins placed where we need them in the Salon to filling them and having our return boxes collected. We can’t fault it! And our clients LOVE that we are finally doing what we can!”
Jack & The Wolfe
“We were looking for ways to make our salon greener when we joined the Salon Sustainability Club. Shrinking our salons footprint on the environment has been made easy - the friendly couriers whisk our box away as soon as it’s full. Our clients love knowing that they are investing in a salon that cares and we love knowing that our waste is being kept out of landfills and our chemicals out of the oceans!”
Since our salon partnered up with Salon sustainability our clients have been very supportive by paying an extra £1 to their bill. It’s brought new business to our salon and we helping to save the planet. Win Win.
