Sustainablity at antonhair

Anton Hair isn’t any regular salon. We are innovative, passionate, and motivated to deliver YOU the best experience.  

In early 2021. Anton Hair became a certified Sustainable Salon in an effort to make salon waste history!

What is Sustainable Salons? 

For those who don’t know, Sustainable Salons is a social enterprise that helps its salon members reduce their impact on the planet and invest in local communities.  

One of the great things about Sustainable Salons is that they recycle almost everything we hairdressers use! Hair, metals, paper, plastics, chemicals, glass, cardboard, razors, tools, and even more!

How it works

Sustainable Salons have established a network of collectors, recyclers, manufacturers, and distributors to make sure up to 95% of materials from salons are diverted from landfill.

  • Plastics are collected, cleaned, and upcycled into new products.
  • All salon metals (including foil) and paper are sold for recycling, and the proceeds are donated to OzHarvest and KiwiHarvest to provide meals for hungry people.
  • Hair is collected from the salon floor and stuffed into stockings to make Hair Booms that can one day help clean up oil spills along our coastlines.
  • All collected ponytails 20cm or longer are distributed to charitable organisations to create wigs for those suffering from cancer or alopecia.
  • Chemicals are collected, pooled, and sent to chemical recycling plants where they’re neutralised and turned into recycled water.
  • Select disposable hygiene products used during treatments are pulled apart and the materials are sent for repurposing.

Why did we become a Sustainable Salon?

As rising leaders in the hair industry, we are all about being positive role models for other businesses. Being able to take a step forward and adapt to the growing needs of clientele is one of the most important things for a business’s success. 

As there has been a growing demand for a healthier environment, becoming a certified Sustainable Salon was an easy decision. Being a Sustainable Salon allows us to play our part in creating a cleaner industry. At Anton Hair, we care about our environmental impact which is why we chose to partner with Sustainable Salons to make a difference! 

How YOU help

Sustainable Salons have now made it possible for the consumer to eliminate 95% of the negative impact of their salon service via a small fee on their final service bill – a total of $3.

The Sustainable Salons Fee goes toward supporting a range of important sustainability and community initiatives:

  • 40% – Resource collection and redirection
  • 25% – Implementing green practices
  • 20% – Supporting the community
  • 10% – Researching recycling solutions
  • 5% – Awareness and education

The organisation has shown REAL results in improving environmental impact and we couldn’t be more grateful to be a contributor to this! 


Each time you visit our salon, be proud in knowing that YOU are helping make all the difference by choosing a Sustainable Salon!
