I’ve been reflecting on ways I can improve Sean Alexander Hair Studio for 2023. With the ever worsening climate crisis I feel a responsibility to step up , lower our carbon footprint and strive to be a zero waste to landfill salon. Each year The hair industry alone produce enough waste to fill 50 football stadiums!
With this in mind, I’m proud to announce I Have partnerd with the incredible Green Salon Collective, who are the original green authority for salon sustainability throughout the UK and Ireland. They essentially “recycle the unrecylable” and really help Combat the waste issues we face as an industry. By joining with GSC, Sean Alexander Hair studio is now proud to be a ZERO waste to landfill salon.
All the hair the studio collects gets made into “hair booms”. These are put into the ocean and Osborb oil and chemical spills. They are also used by gardeners and farmers due to hair being rich in nitrogen which is great for composting .
All metal collected gets sterilised and cleaned. It then gets sold as a commodity to specialist partners who recycle it as you would normal aluminium. 100% of the profits are donated to charities like Haircuts4Homeless, Food Cycle and organisations like rewilders Mossy Earth.
We have introduced Eco heads to our basins which pressurise the water, resulting in 65% less water per client. We have also triple filter our drinking water to cut down on plastic bottle waste.
I’ve personally made sure myself that all our suppliers have strong brand values and green credentials.
