SUSTAINABLE RE-FURBISHMENT

Our interior has been designed and built with sustainability in mind. Our mirrors are made from reclaimed church pews, and our waiting bench is also a reclaimed pew. Our floor has been reclaimed from a renovated cottage. Old sleepers and reclaimed wood have been used to make our island unit. Our existing back wash units and reception desk have been given a make over and upcycled.

LOW ENERGY

All of our new lighting is now LED low energy lighting. We have an eco washing machine, and we are starting to replace our hair dryers with parlux eco dryers. Our wood flooring retains heat for longer than tiles and other hard flooring techniques which will help save energy on heating.

RECYCLING

We are committed in the salon to reducing our waste and recycling. Cans and bottles have been removed from the salon and we have systems in place to separate waste and recycle.

PARTNERSHIPS

We have signed up to the Resource Efficiency pledge with @resourceScot pledging to improve recycling, energy efficiency and keep Scotland clean. We are also committed to fundraising for WaterAid UK and are donating 15% of our Feb profits to the charity We feel blessed to have an abundant supply so feel it is vital to support this charity which is committed to getting safe water, sanitation and hygiene to everyone, everywhere by 2030.

PRODUCT RANGES

We now only use products that are sulphate, paraben and cruelty free. We are committed to using local companies, working with people like Edinburgh based Cahoonas and north of England based Hairbond. We use the fully organic range The Green People for all our facials.
