Sustainable Salons is a unique social enterprise that specialises in collecting up to 95% of the salon bin and redirecting all material for reuse, recycling and repurposing solutions. The program also offers rewards for the salon’s recycling efforts with useful items and savings for the business, while 100% of the recycling proceeds are donated to charitable organisations OzHarvest and KiwiHarvest to help feed those in need.


How does Sustainable Salons accomplish this circular business framework?

Firstly, the Sustainable Salons program provides its salon members with the tools and support they need to ensure their business practices are less harmful to the planet, their clients and their staff.

The program collects paper, plastic, metals, hair, chemicals, razors, e-waste and much more, and sends all items for recycling or repurposing, instead of to landfill. They’re even making closed-loop products from plastic salon waste materials, including glasses frames, coasters and pet leashes! Plus, as a social enterprise, we use the proceeds from recycling to help feed those in need and support our local communities via volunteering and partnerships with charitable organisations.

This means, every salon member then makes it possible for each client to eliminate 95% of the negative impact of their salon service and actively contribute to the community for less than the price of a coffee on their final bill.

Sustainable Salons has more than 1,200 members in hairdressing, barbering, pet-grooming, beauty and dermal therapies around Australia and New Zealand, with more than 62,000 consumers currently visiting one of these every week! The best part is - our Salon Locator is the #1 salon directory service in the Southern Hemisphere where 5,000+ consumers come each month to find and book a Sustainable Salon for their next service.
