We know how important sustainability is to our LÉ BUNS babes & we want to keep you informed about progress in sustainable living, giving you the tools to implement changes into your own lives.
Buying sustainable clothing and ethical fashion is one part of reducing our individual waste & carbon footprints, but there is so much more that we can do.
A lot of us choose to get our hair done fairly regularly, it's a good bit of self care and a great excuse to scroll through instagram for 5 hours straight. But have you ever thought about the impact that salon's can have on the environment?
We've teamed up with Donna Sheridan to inform you about the Sustainable Salons initiative & how you can make better choices when it comes to your 'do. Don't worry, your hair can be sustainable too ;)
Donna herself has over 15 years of hairdressing experience, she has a passion for effortlessly chic styling and being a lover of nature, it was super important to her to ensure her salon implemented sustainable practices where possible when she opened her own salon.
"We are a proud member of Sustainable Salons, the first comprehensive resource recovery program designed for the salon environment that rewards salons and gives back to the community.
Sustainable Salons recycles and repurposes up to 95% of salon waste. We have 5 different recycling bins which we separate up to 95% of our salon waste into. 100% of the profits they generate from recycling are donated to charity. So far sustainable salons has helped us save 358,000 kg of materials from landfill, provide 100,000 meals to those doing it tough in our communities, and collected upwards of 43,000 ponytails towards wigs for cancer and alopecia sufferers. They offer purposeful work for people with a disability, and give our salon members a strong voice in their communities to fight for a better future for all."
Kevin Murphy is a brand we are all about when it comes to keeping your hair looking cute, and the planet looking cute too. Their products are used exclusively in Donna Sheridan salons and are a brand of choice by Sustainable Salons for their commitment to recycled packaging and utilisation of natural ingredients in all of their products.
We had the joy of experiencing the salon for ourselves, and it is such a relaxing and refreshing environment to spend time in. To all of our Melbourne based babes, this salon is top notch and definitely one to keep on your radar for any upcoming impromptu (or vigorously thought-through) hair transformations.
