Give Beauty Waste a New Life Learn the facts. Be the change.

Hair Clippings

Today, 63,000 pounds of hair gets thrown away every day. Every garbage bag of hair produces greenhouse gases as it tries to break down, which contributes to climate change.

You can help change that.

Excess Hair Color

Today, over 42,000 pounds of excess hair color, lightener and toner is thrown away every day. When rinsed down the drain, it can find its way back into our drinking water and soil.

You can help change that.

Used Metals

Today, over 110,000 pounds of used metal, including hair foils, is thrown away every day in salons in North America. That’s over half the weight of a commercial airplane.

You can help change that.

PPE Waste

Although PPE is necessary to keep salon guests and staff safe, it means added waste. Our PPE program recovers materials like gloves, masks and disinfectant wipes and gives it a new life.

Single Use Items

Today, single use items – like nail files, waxing strips and cotton swabs – make up a large portion of beauty waste that ends up in our landfills.

You can help change that.
Find out what we do with used single use items.

Papers & Plastics

Today, more than half the waste thrown away in salons is paper and plastic. If not properly recycled, these items clutter our landfills. For salons that don’t have access to a local recycling program, we recycle their paper and plastics.

Thanks to our 16,000+ Waste Warriors, this is the total amount of beauty waste we’ve kept out of landfills and waterways since 2009.
