At Amanda Flory Hairdressing, we are taking steps to make our salon more sustainable and decrease our carbon foot print. This is very important to us and we continue to strive to do anything we can, big or small to make a difference. We are also taking part in local community projects such as team litter picks and regularly have walk to work days. We have banned one use plastic bottles in the salon too.
We are still relatively new to this journey and are determined to improve bit by bit wherever we can as time goes along….
Things that we are proud to have implemented so far
We are extremely proud and excited to be the first salon in the UK to stock the sustainable and organic range Orilab. Orilab are a luxury hair care range which have a no water concept, meaning that the water in their products is replaced with Aloe vera which is ultra nourishing and gentle on the scalp. All of Orilab’s products contain beautiful certified Organic ingredients, are cruelty free, free from sulphates and parabens and use recycled and recyclable packaging, We offer a refill service for Orilab products to further limit our impact on the environment.
Oway are an environmentally friendly and fully sustainable company producing beautiful and thoughtfully created haircare and lifestyle choices. Oway is Biodynamic, organic and also fair trade. The products are cruelty free and contain complex formulas, rich in active ingredients to really benefit your hair. All of the packaging is 85% glass and has FSC paper labels, the idea being that you have one bottle for life. The production Laboratories use renewable energy and sustainable and certified processes. This is a company that truly are doing everything they can to be carbon neutral, sustainable and ethical and what’s more, the products are gorgeous!
