Here at Loxy's we're passionate about many things; great hair and the environment are two of them! Our industry and the waste it creates is very tough on the environment. The sheer volume of chemicals, plastics and foils from one day of services is mind blowing. We have been looking for a way we can reduce our waste and do our part to keep our country beautiful. This is why we are so excited to be partnering with Sustainable Salons!
Working with Sustainable Salons means that 95% of the resources used during our services will be rescued from landfill and repurposed. Our foils go to feed hungry people through KiwiHarvest, our chemicals are neutralised and turned into recycled water that’s used in roadworks, and hair clippings are turned into oil booms that help clean up oil spills along our coastline.
One of our favourite reasons to partner with them, and something we're incredibly excited for, is what they can do with our old extensions! One of things Loxy’s is known for is our amazing hair extensions. Prior to Sustainable Salons old extension hair was just disposed of. Now, we give Sustainable Salons our old extensions to send to local charities and hospitals to create wigs for those suffering from cancer, alopecia and other medical conditions. Sustainable Salons is the biggest donor of ponytails in the Southern Hemisphere, which we find amazing!
Loxy’s, with the help of Sustainable Salons, is doing our part to reduce our waste, make our communities better and spread the word of how easy it is for all of us to make small changes! We hope that changes like these will have a ripple effect of stopping further damage from happening and hopefully be able to undo some of the environmental destruction to our planet.
