Sustainability at rh hair farnham
Sustainable hair salon in farnham Surrey
We do our very best to be environmentally friendly by using vegan friendly and against animal cruelty products. We are proud to use NVNT due to their range of 96% naturally derived ingredients.
Our gowns and towels are 100% biodegradable.
We have LED lights throughout the salon.
As an environmentally sensitive hair salon in Farnham, Surrey, we work hard to eliminate unnecessary waste materials and pollution and reduce our carbon footprint by using disposable products wherever we can.
We take care and attention in every choice we make selecting fair trade products when possible that still deliver excellent results and work to improve and protect the quality of your hair, scalp and skin.
For example, to help reduce our water intake we use ECOHEADS shower-heads which are made of recycled plastic and reduce water intake by an incredible 65%. Better yet, they are 100% recyclable and use a unique filtration-system that ionises the water and removes sediments, which helps to leave the hair feeling cleaner and healthier.
We also partner with an organisation called ‘Green Salon Collective’ who provide a solution with a ZERO to landfill policy!! And using waste to benefit the environment, such as hair being used as Hair booms and mats. It’s no secret that hair absorbs oil — we’ve all had oily hair at some point!
We use a lot of foil in our Industry and metals (colour tubes). It’s all salon metals that are being sent to landfill.
A major issue for many council collections is that your foils are too dirty and contaminated. They risk leaching onto other materials and could make EVERYTHING not fit for recycling!
We use chemicals and no matter how gentle your colour and bleach is for hair, we must keep it away from the natural environment. The current options of down the sink or into landfills are the worst possible solutions for any toxic chemicals.
Over time, the colour and bleach leach toxins that form part of leachate. Leachate is the liquid formed when waste breaks down in the landfill and water filters through that waste.
This liquid is highly toxic and can pollute our soil and groundwater, and become an environmental hazard for years.
But recycling everything including hair, metals and chemicals and making sure nothing goes to landfill
*a £1.00 ‘green fee’ charge will be added to all services to cover the extra expense
Our vision is to raise and improve standards by enabling us to become more ethical and create sustainable environments
