At The Players Lounge, sustainability isn’t just a concept—it’s our commitment to ensuring a healthier planet for future generations. In 2016, under Suzie’s leadership, our team pledged to minimise our environmental impact. We aimed to reduce our carbon footprint, make eco-conscious choices, and cut down on single-use plastics.

Eco-Friendly Refurbishment

Our salon underwent a complete eco-friendly refurbishment. We focused on sustainable design, featuring reclaimed church pew mirrors, a waiting bench from a reclaimed pew, and flooring from a renovated cottage. Our central island unit and other furniture pieces were crafted from old sleepers and reclaimed wood, while our back wash units and reception desk were thoughtfully upcycled.

Energy Efficiency

We’ve transitioned to LED lighting, use an eco washing machine, and our hairstyling is powered by Parlux eco dryers. Our wood flooring not only adds warmth but also retains heat better than traditional flooring, reducing our heating needs.

Recycling and Waste Reduction

Dedication to waste reduction and recycling is integral to our operations. We’ve implemented systems to ensure waste separation and maximise recycling efforts.

Community and Environmental Partnerships

  • We’ve joined the Resource Efficiency Pledge with @resourceScot, committing to enhance recycling and energy efficiency.
  • Supporting WaterAid UK is important to us, as we fundraise to help provide safe water, sanitation, and hygiene globally by 2030.
  • Additionally, each year our team participates in a charity walk to raise funds for various causes, with St. Columba’s Hospice being especially close to our hearts due to Lynne’s valued volunteer work there.

Eco-Conscious Products

Our salon exclusively uses products free from sulphates, parabens, and cruelty. We prioritise partnering with local, sustainable businesses like Moo & Yoo Edinburgh. For detailed information on our eco-friendly product range, feel free to ask us in the salon
