What is Salon Sustainability

Salon Sustainability is a recycling scheme designed for the Hair and Beauty industry to make salon recycling simple, clean and cost effective so that salon owners, stylists and freelancers can focus on what they love most... Doing hair!

Most councils won't recycle foil, colour tubes, hair and excess colour chemicals. We recycle the unrecyclable, giving salons the ability to recycle up to 95% of their waste. What’s more, 100% of our profits from recycling your waste goes directly to supporting the industry’s charity HABB (Hair & Beauty Benevolent).

How it works...

''We were looking for ways to make our salon greener. Shrinking our salons footprint on the environment has been made easy.''

What We Recycle

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. 


Foil & Metals

Metals gets sorted by type (aluminium, steel), cleaned and reprocessed into aluminium ingots and sold on to make foil, cans, confectionery wrapping paper etc.


Chemical waste

All the water content – which could be up to 90 per cent - gets removed and the rest gets recycled or incinerated as part of a clean energy initiative.



Salon Sustainability turns hair clippings into Hair Booms, which help soak up oil spills in the ocean, and stop oil spreading further and affecting wildlife.



Salon plastics are cleaned, shredded and sold back to the plastics industry so new tools and products can be made for the hair and beauty industry.



Cardboard and paper is widely recycled by councils. We recycle all unwanted salon paper and used return boxes so they can be repurposed.

Disposable Towels

Disposable options are hygienic but it’s become an extra burden on waste. We have the solution. Salons can now return their used disposable towels to be turned into compost.
