Paper is one of, if not THE most well-known recyclable material out there, and salons come across a lot of it!

How do we recycle paper waste?

We send all paper products to our specialised recycling partners who grade, sort, shred and bale it.

These bales then get sent to paper mills to make new, recycled paper products. During its reprocessing, the mills test the mixture and add virgin fibres to help with any breakdown of the recycled paper fibres.
