Factors to Consider When Choosing Eco-Friendly Hair Products
When it comes to choosing eco-friendly and sustainable hair products, it's important to consider the impact that our choices can have on both us and the planet. By paying attention to the ingredients, packaging, and sourcing of the products we use, we can make a positive impact on the environment and our own well-being.
To do this, we can look for products that embrace natural, organic, and plant-based ingredients that are free from harmful chemicals. This not only nourishes our hair and scalp, but it also helps to prevent exposure to toxins that can be harmful to our health and the environment. We can also seek out products that use biodegradable and recyclable packaging, which helps to reduce waste and promote sustainability.
Our Plant Brush is the result of a lot of hard work! Created using Castor Beans, it’s a stroke of genius (if we do say so ourselves) to go from bean to brush, helping to reduce waste and promote a more conscious buying choice.
Selecting brands that prioritize ethical sourcing of ingredients and promote fair labour practices can also make a big difference in supporting the environment and the people involved in the production process. By choosing eco-friendly and sustainable hair products with these factors in mind, we can make a positive impact on our hair and the world around us.
Tangle Teezer's Commitment to the Environment
At Tangle Teezer, we take our responsibility to the planet seriously. We believe that we can make a difference in the world through our commitment to eco-friendly and sustainable practices. That's why we've been working hard over the last few years to make our manufacturing processes more sustainable and partner with organisations that help us tackle climate change. Our most recent launch to change the main material of our famous brushes without compromising on the quality we’re known for, is testament to our commitment to focus our efforts on the world we live in.
Have you heard of our recycling process? We have introduced a new initiative to promote the recycling of our products. Our philosophy is simple: Detangle, Recycle, Repeat. Tangle Teezer offers free recycling for our plastic brushes, and any other plastic brush, which is sent back to our facility for processing. The process is easy and hassle-free, and as a thank you for participating, we offer a 15% discount on your next order! Seems like a win-win…
By recycling your old plastic hairbrush, you'll be doing your part to help the environment, and we aim to increase our annual recycling to 10,000 brushes by 2030. Here at Tangle Teezer, we ensure that recycled plastic is given a second life and used to create new items such as watering cans, garden chairs, and benches.
We also have a partnership with the World Land Trust (WLT), an international conservation charity that protects the world's most threatened habitats acre by acre. We're proud to be a partner of the WLT and have committed to reducing our carbon impact through the charity's Carbon Balanced program.
We use Carbon Balanced Paper printed by WLT Certified Carbon Balanced Printers for all of our printed inserts, which helps to fund the preservation of tropical forest reserves that provide a permanent habitat for endangered wildlife while locking in CO2. We receive certification for the amount of CO2 that we offset and the amount of forest area protected from our donation, so we can keep track of the positive impact we're having on the environment. By choosing Tangle Teezer, you can feel good about making a difference in the world, one detangling hairbrush at a time.
