Bournemouth & Poole College is the first further education institution to join the Green Salon Collective.

The collective’s mission is to prove that the hair and beauty industry can make responsible changes to protect the environment.

As part of this sustainable movement, the College has rebranded its five hair salons and five beauty salons to ‘ReNew Salons’.

By joining the Green Salon Collective, the College will now have access to informative guidance and support to facilitate salon sustainability.

It is now possible for ReNew Salons to recycle materials that would usually be classed as ‘non-recyclable’, preventing less waste being sent to landfill.

This includes turning chemicals, plastics, PPE, used foils, colour tubes and hair waste into fuel in a ‘clean’ way.

The beauty and hair teams will review the products used in the salons to transition to more environmentally friendly products in-line with this new ethos.

Kizi Padden-Tuhey, trainer at Bournemouth & Poole College, explained: “The College hopes to lead the way in making sustainable salons a standard practice.

“We see it as our responsibility as an education provider to teach young people about what can be done now to minimise the impact on our environment for our future generations.”

Applications for Hair and Beauty courses and Apprenticeships are open now at the College with a September start.

Students who complete the programme will receive an additional ‘eco sustainability certificate’ in partnership with Southampton University, proving that they are qualified to practice sustainably in the workplace.

ReNew Salons are now open to the public for hair and beauty treatments, but pre-booking is essential.
