As a hair salon and team of hairdressers, we are passionate that we delight all our guests with incredible hair whilst being mindful of our carbon footprint and remaining protective of the impact we have on our planet! After much research and investigation we were delighted to discover a company called Salon Sustainability and have now become become proud members and advocates of their campaign.
Salon Sustainability is the brainchild of JC Aucamp, a Salon Owner and Award Winning Colour Specialist who, in his own words, “was horrified by just how much salon waste goes to landfill”
After 4 years in the making, in 2020 Salon Sustainability was finally born with JC bringing together a team of experts in recycling, packaging and general business to provide a comprehensive waste recovery programme designed specifically for the hair and beauty industry.
The aim is to embrace the entire industry from freelancers, to small and medium sized salons right up to Super Salons. Salon Sustainability give salons nationwide the power to easily recycle up to 95% of salon waste. Everything from aluminium foils, disposable towels, colour tubes, chemicals, hair, plastic and paper. They even run a PPE Recovery programme and we offer fully compostable PPE including gowns, aprons and gloves.
At Artelier, we are delighted that we have the amazing opportunity to be part of such an inspirational and forward-thinking community and we’re passionate and committed to playing our part in creating a cleaner environment.
100% of Salon Sustainability‘s profit from selling on waste for recycling goes directly to support the industry’s charity, HABB (Hair and Beauty Benevolent) & along the way, they give business and employment to Enham Trust , a leading UK disability charity committed to supporting disabled people to live, work & enjoy life.
