The Green Salon Collective

Melanie Richard’s Hair & Beauty – An Eco-friendly Peterborough Salon

Melanie Richard’s Hair & Beauty Salon in Peterborough are delighted to have signed up to The Green Salon Collective to increase the recycling of waste within the salon and reduce pollution of the environment.

Here at Melanie Richard’s we truly care for the world we live in and want to minimise our impact on the environment. That’s why we are proud to have gained a reputation as one of the greenest eco-friendly salons in Peterborough. We love our new partnership with The Green Salon Collective who share our ethos and are committed to sustainability, reducing waste and helping the environment.

How Are We A Green Hair & Beauty Salon In Peterborough?

From now on most items of salon waste will be recycled or used again. All hair cuttings can be made into hair booms and mats which can be used to absorb oil from waterways, be donated to charity to make wigs or added into garden compost mixes.

Colouring tubes and waste foil from highlighting services will be collected from the salon using either electric vans or carbon-neutral transportation and recycled or reused instead of it going to landfill and polluting our precious planet.

We will send to recycling instead of landfill all PPE, gloves, plastic lids, & single-use plastic.

A Sustainable Salon

As an environmentally sensitive hair and beauty salon in Peterborough, we strive to eliminate unnecessary waste materials and pollution and reduce our carbon footprint by using disposable products wherever we can. Joining the Green Salon Collective has taken us to the next level!

Salon owner Richard McDonald said: “The environment has always been something that we’ve cared about, so when we found out about Green Salon Collective we just had to get involved.“

At Melanie Richard’s, we are committed to recycling and are proud to be an eco-friendly, green hair & beauty salon in Peterborough.
Some of the ways we achieve this include:

  • We use Aveda cruelty free haircare & colouring products
  • We use disposable products wherever we can
  • We use compostable & recyclable wherever possible
  • We use cruelty-free products
  • We only use LED fittings
  • We use Scrummi hairdressing towels which are disposable and biodegrade in 8 -12 weeks
