We give salon plastics a meaningful second life through innovative recycling and upcycling initiatives.

Plastic takes hundreds of years to break down, and even then microplastics can remain which pollute our land and oceans.

With the salon industry's heavy use of plastics, we knew a real impact can (and has) been made by recycling a huge amount of plastic. We’ve collaborated with awesome organisations like Dresden Vision and Defy Design to help us in this mission, with some super cool products to show for it!

What do we accept?


  • Uncoloured Plastic Film or Soft Packaging
  • Hard Plastic Packaging (e.g shampoo bottles)
  • Plastic Colour Brushes
  • Plastic Colour Mixing Bowls
  • Plastic Bags
  • Plastic Lids
  • Mixed Material Packaging (e.g chip packets)


  • Ground Coffee/ Coffee Bean Packaging
  • Vinyl/ Latex or Biodegradable Gloves

What do we do with all those plastics?

We collaborated with Dresden Vision to create glasses made from 100% recycled plastic! Recycled plastic bottles were first broken down into small pellets, then dyed, melted and moulded into shape.
