Making Salon Waste History

We are helping minimise the salon footprint

Sustainable Salons have established a network of collectors, recyclers, manufacturers and distributors to make sure up to 95% of materials from salons are diverted from landfill.

  • Plastics are collected, cleaned and upcycled into new products.

  • All salon metals (including foil) and paper are sold for recycling, and the proceeds are donated to OzHarvest and KiwiHarvest to provide meals for hungry people.

  • Hair is 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.

  • All collected ponytails 20cm or longer are distributed to charitable organisations to create wigs for those suffering from cancer or alopecia.

  • Chemicals are collected, pooled and sent to chemical recycling plants where they’re neutralised and turned into recycled water.
  • Select disposable hygiene products used during treatments are pulled apart and the materials are sent for repurposing.

Rescuing up to 95% of salon resources from landfill and donating 100% of proceeds from the sale of these materials to local communities and charities.
