An exciting new collaboration for Artelier enables us to embrace our waste and all for the good of our environment!
All our clients know how much Team Artelier LOVE the world of hair: as hair professionals, there is nothing more satisfying than when our clients leave us feeling amazing from the confidence-boosting and empowering effects of an incredible new hairstyle or colour.
We are also all very aware that there is an ugly side to our industry: we freely pour toxic hair colour down the sink, throw our used foils and aluminium colour tubes in the bin given that they mostly can’t be recycled, we throw valuable hair cuttings into the bin and use more plastic and paper than other high street businesses. THIS HAS TO STOP! We want it to stop NOW for the future of our children and grandchildren, for the environment, our planet, for our animals, our coastline and sealife!
The Artelier Team have been investigating how we can improve sustainability and we have now connected with a wonderful startup organisation called Salon Sustainability who will encourage and support us to embrace our salon waste. Thanks to Salon Sustainability we are able to recycle 95% of our Salon Waste.
Salon Sustainability are passionate about what they do, creating a cleaner environment and enabling other hair salons to do the same. Salon owner JC Aucamp is an award-winning colour specialist and is as passionate about the environment as he is about hairdressing. After being horrified by just how much salon waste goes to landfill, JC came up with the fantastic idea of Salon Sustainability.
With their recycling system, they can recycle almost every single piece of “rubbish” and turn it into something new. Salon Sustainability will provide our salon with separation kits, in-salon marketing as well as regular collections, ongoing support, ideas and education on all matters regarding sustainability.
The company also recycle all their profits. 100% of any money raised from recycling salon raw materials or new products made from salon waste goes to The Hair & Beauty Benevolent Fund. By recycling their profits, every month together we can support charities and organisations that are close to our hearts. The biggest winner here is that collectively, salons who are part of the Salon Sustainability are able to reward the planet by diverting dangerous excess colour & bleach from our waterways, preventing plastics & hair in going to landfills, the same goes for, paper, e-waste, organic waste and much more!
Artelier are very proud to be the first hair salon in Formby to join SALON SUSTAINBILITY and one of the first Liverpool Hairdressers to be part of the group.
