SUSTAINABLE HAIR PRACTISE
The thing about harsh chemicals is that when they end up in our water and rubbish waste, they hurt our environment and our wildlife. But, at Bob, using the best products available is not enough. From the way we recycle, to the products we use and the practices we implement, we’re committed to ensuring our work does not come at the cost of the earth.
Animal Cruelty Free
We take care that the products we use are not only naturally better for you and the environment, but also better for animals, too. This is why we do not use any products that are tested on animals, and most of our products are suited to vegetarians and vegans.
Each time you visit our sustainable salon, your service bill will include a small green fee of $3 that will support Bob to stay committed to sustainability without compromising the quality service we offer you.
Who Gives a Crap?
We do. That’s why, in our bathrooms, you’ll find Who Gives A Crap toilet paper. They use 100% recycled materials, such as books and office paper, and donate 50% of their profits to improve sanitation and help build toilets for those in need.
Bob’s EcoHeads shower heads use 5.5 litres of water per minute, which is 65% less water than regular shower heads. As an added bonus, the unique filtration system helps to reduce chlorine and generates negative ions as water goes through, which softens the hair for a smoother end result.
Each year in Australia, over 1.5 million kilograms of foil goes to landfill, and only 1% of salons are recycling foil. We are working with partners including Sustainable Salons to collect and recycle 100% our waste including foil, hair clippings, paper, cardboard and colour tubes.
All hair clippings go towards making hair booms that are used to soak up oil spills in our oceans, so even your split ends that lay neglected on the floor are being swept up in to something good. We use chemical buckets for all chemical wastage so that we can leave the nasties out of our waterways.
