Green Salon Collective Creates Circular Economy For Hair Waste

by charlottegw / last updated April 19, 2021


Green Salon Collective, the original authority on salon sustainability in UK & Ireland, are always thinking about they can use salon waste (like hair) to benefit the industry, the environment and/or the community.

With this in mind they are aim to create a circular economy with each waste stream that salons give them.

Take hair for example, normally it goes straight to landfill and has no positive impact on a business, the environment or community. So they challenged themselves to create a circular economy solution for hair that’s going to waste.

Green Salon Collective now provide salons with a bin especially for hair. They collect the hair from the salons using either electric vans or carbon-neutral transportation. Then they use the hair for either gardening, composting or oil or waterway cleaning operations. And when they can profit from this process, proceeds are given to industry charities.

They have developed these certified solutions for every waste stream and because of this, and the high ethics and standards, they have been able to partner with companies like Authentic Beauty Concept, we/Do, L’Oréal Professionnel Products Division, Wella Professionals, KEVIN.MURPHY, Paul Mitchell, OWAY, FFØR, INSIGHT, Foil Me, Eco Towels, CENTRED, Natulique, The Salon Standards Agency and many more.
