Sustainability

At Mosu, we care about the environment. We endeavour to minimise our carbon footprint without compromising on our guest experience.

As a sustainable salon, we collectively contribute to our community, we have carefully selected our waste management company to ensure that no waste ends up in landfill and collect hair from the salon floor to re-purpose into environmental initiatives such as oil spill clean up projects.

We’re a member of the Green Salon Collective, Founded by environmental experts, hairdressers and eco campaigners, Green Salon Collective is the original authority on salon sustainability throughout the UK and Ireland.

They facilitate salon sustainability by recycling the un-recyclable. Any profits raised from the sale of all commodities get redistributed and recycled too by supporting charities and local communities, as well as aiding all salons on their own journey towards a greener future.

All the proceeds gained from recycling the salon’s metals such as foils, colour tubes, cans, etc will be donated to not for profit community based organisations that do a killer job helping humanity every day.
