How to save water in your hairdressing salon

 With many hairdressing businesses looking to do good and become more sustainable, we want to support salon owners to become more eco in all elements of their business. One way that hairdressing salons can reduce their environmental footprint is through looking at their water consumption. Here are 3 top tips for reducing water usage in your hairdressing salon...


Use Ecoheads

Traditional showerheads in hairdressing salons consume large amounts of water, contributing to both water wastage and increased utility costs. EcoHead showerheads offer a simple yet effective solution to this problem. These innovative showerheads are designed to reduce water consumption without compromising on performance. By incorporating EcoHead showerheads into their salons, owners can conserve water, lower their bills, and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability to clients.

You can buy Ecohead showerheads for your salon here.


Switch to disposable salon towels...but just use one per client

Single-use salon towels are a common source of waste in hairdressing salons. However, by opting for compostable towels made from natural fibres, you can significantly reduce your environmental footprint including your water usage through the production of cotton towels, and the laundering of them. Once used, these towels can be composted, returning valuable nutrients to the soil instead of ending up in a landfill. Make composting a part of your salon's waste management routine and watch as your impact on the environment diminishes - you can compost with Green Salon Collective.
