At Rustic Roots, it is our belief to make every single one of our guests feel amazing while not compromising the environment in doing so. We believe in sustainability and strive to give back to the planet where we can and minimise our carbon footprint.
It was always our vision from day one to be an eco-friendly salon and to always stay true to our core values. With this philosophy in mind here are a few of the things we are doing:
We save thousands of litres of water by using the best of scrummi, 100% natural and biodegradable towels. These luxury single-use hair towels biodegrade in 8 weeks and are compostable. Not only are they hygienic, they are also made from soft, natural wood fibers from sustainable forestry programs, also Vegan friendly!
We use Davines throughout our salon, from products to colours. Their products are formulated only from local ingredients, grown in their Davines village in Parma, Italy. They are safe for both our clients and the environment. They are obtained from 100% clean energy, zero impact, essential and recyclable packaging. The colours we use are all PPD and paraben free, all packaging is made from recyclable, compostable material and with FSC certified paper. They are a family-run company, much like ourselves, and hold the same values as we do.
We use Foil Me foils to highlight your hair, which are 100% recyclable foil material and made from a percentage of recycled aluminium.
Our salon decor is made from natural wood and our bespoke reception desk, colour mixing area and backwash shelving was created using up-cycled wood and wooden pallets.
We promote a positive culture within our team towards minimising waste and recycle up to 80% of the refuse that we produce within the salon.
We use LED lighting throughout our salon, reducing our carbon footprint.
We strive to be a paperless salon, utilising electronic receipts, price lists and general salon information.
All bags used when purchasing a product are made from recyclable material.
We always strive to do better and continually look to improve and introduce new ways to reduce our enviromental impact.
