Becoming more sustainable is easier than you think, there are so many switches you can make in your life in order to reduce your carbon footprint, and protect our beautiful planet. Our friends over at CLOUD NINE are the proud representatives of an innovative recycling scheme, not to mention, a worlds first! And we want to share their industry leading sustainability initiatives and environmental goals, and would love for you to join us on this mission.
Award Winning Sustainability
Awarded the Best Sustainable Hair Tools Brand by Marie Claire, CLOUD NINE are on a mission to lead the hair and beauty industry in becoming even more sustainable through their commitments to recycling and more. The amount of e-waste going to landfill, paired with the lack of awareness surrounding the severity of this waste stream growth is concerning...
Did you know
• 2M TONNES OF ELECTRONIC WASTE IS DISCARDED EACH YEAR IN THE UK
• 80% OF ALL ELECTRONIC WASTE IS NOT RECYCLED, ENDING UP IN LANDFILL
• 142BN UNITS OF PACKAGING IS GENERATED BY THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY EACH YEAR
That’s why CLOUD NINE are taking action now for a better future. Here are five ways in which they are already taking steps to be more sustainable and pave the way for the industry...
1. World First Recycling Scheme
Since launching the world’s first hair straightening iron recycling scheme in August 2019, CLOUD NINE has saved over 50,000 straighteners from landfill – but they’re not stopping there. This April, they have expanded their recycling scheme to offer FREE recycling for any Hairdryer, Curling Wand or Straightening Iron - in a world first scheme. Join their mission to save 1.5 million hair styling tools from landfill by recycling your old, unwanted or broken ones.
2. They plant trees!
CLOUD NINE will also plant nine trees on your behalf throughout the entire year! They work with Ecologi, an organisation that partners with climate projects to offset carbon emissions and build forests all around the world. They have already planted over 24,00 trees in forests from Madagascar to Mozambique and they’re not stopping there...
3. Low carbon shipping methods
CLOUD NINE are keen to use low carbon shipping methods wherever possible. That’s why they do not transport their products from the country of manufacture, South Korea, via air freight. This massively reduces CLOUD NINE’s carbon footprint and helps us be kinder to the environment.
4. Eco-Friendly Water Bottles
Their Eco-Friendly Water Bottle allows you to stay hydrated whilst significantly reducing the amount of single use plastic you use day to day. Keep an eye out on Oz Hair & Beauty throughout the year to see how you can get one!
This is just the start for CLOUD NINE on their sustainability journey, and the start for yours too! Shop CLOUD NINE at Oz Hair & Beauty today to begin your environmental journey!
