From Trash to Treasure 🌿

With Queensland retail stores cracking down on their #green #thumb this year, we thought it was important to share with you how we here at Jack Horton Hair Boutique are making salon history!!

Sustainable Salons is a "Social Enterprise that reduces up to 95% of Salon Resources from Landfill and finds repurposing solutions that benefit our Planet, all while supporting the community".

Doesn't that sound a m a z i n g ?!!!!

This is how it works...

In salon we divide our waste into five different bins (#Paper, #Plastic, #Hair, #Metal and excess #Chemicals) which are then collected each week by the #SustainableSalon team!

- From here our paper and metal is sold for #recycling, with the income donated to #OzHarvest (a group who feeds the homeless).

- Our plastic (such as empty product bottles) is #recycled into underground cable covering for the NBN and even outdoor furniture!!!

- The hair collected is both #repurposed into charitable wigs (for those suffering from cancer and Alopecia Areata) AND is also used to create Hair Booms (a sustainable option for cleaning up Oil Spills ((the hair soaks up the oil more effectively than chemical dispersants that are typically used)) how cool right?)

*picture shown right*

- And lastly, Sustainable Salons is the first company in the salon industry that has made it possible to #recycle excess chemicals! The chemicals are sent to chemical recycling plants, where they are neutralised and then turned into recycled water (which is used in road works and construction).


But wait... there's M O R E!!!

On top of ALL of that, Sustainable Salon's partnership with the Endeavour Foundation, allows them to provide meaningful and ethical jobs for people with disabilities.

Just WOW!

Next time you are visiting us in salon, remember that by simply getting a hair cut, you are contributing to #brighter and #greener future!!!

Working alongside Sustainable Salons for the past 12 months has allowed us to contribute greatly to our community. Below is a summary of how we have contributed to a #positive #eco change in the last year!!
