Whenever I go to a hair salon, I’m always amazed at how innovative they can get when it comes to making us more beautiful.
They can literally transform the way we look.
For example by making our hair look like a rainbow (cf. picture below), all while delivering an incredible experience, even sometimes crazy ones (knives, really?!)
But if there’s one aspect on which hair salons have not necessarily been innovative or forward-thinking, it’s unfortunately on the environmental aspect.
Did you know the chemicals used to colour your hair contain hazardous substances that are not well recycled?
Do you know what happens to your hair once it’s cut and becomes waste?
I recently discovered hair salons are a recycling nightmare, with most of the waste ending up in landfills!
Did you know that hair salons are one of the most polluting shops in the high street?!
At Snowball Effect, we never expose a problem without a solution to solve it.
So don’t be desperate because we have an answer for you.
Green Salon Collective!
What is Green Salon Collective?
Green Salon Collective was launched as a circular solution for salon waste.
The model of this British social enterprise is to recycle and reuse the waste generated in hair salons to do something useful with it (ex: to clean oil spills in the ocean, to compost, etc.)
Co-founder of Green Salon Collective, Fry, setting up a hair boom to clean up oil spills in the ocean
So far they have saved 40 tons of waste from landfills, and they aim to save 200 tons by the end of 2022.
What do they do more precisely?
They provide recycling bins to the hair salons. Once they come and collect the waste, they turn them into useful resources for other use.
It’s precisely what we call the “Circular Economy”! (In opposition to the linear economy).
But that’s not the end!
They also put emphasis on empowering hairdressers directly by giving them the knowledge to operate their businesses in a more eco-friendly way.
Who is the team behind?
Among the 3 cofounders, 2 were former hairdressers who saw closely what the problem was. This is how they came up with the idea of Green Salon Collective.
As one of the cofounders, Fry, says in this Masterclass video:
“When I saw the climate-related challenges, I wanted to be part of the solution and not part of the problem”.
However... One little problem remains.
There are millions of hair salons everywhere in the world!
Green Salon Collective cannot possibly be there for all of them worldwide!
