We were the first salon in New Zealand to use The Big Towel Company’s eco-friendly bio-degradable towels and capes. This reduces the amount of water and electricity used to launder towels, and the amount of chemicals contaminating the environment.

Ecoheads have been installed on all basins which makes water use more efficient.

We work hard to avoid producing excess waste, and to reduce and creatively reuse waste where it is unavoidable, as well as to recycle wherever possible.

Clients can take their bio-degradable towels and gowns home to use as cleaning cloths or weed mats.Any other uncontaminated towels are used to clean the salon, and gowns are donated to city parks for weed mats. Towels and gowns that are not reused are decomposed by naturally occurring micro-organisms into CO2 and water.
