CLOUD NINE celebrate Global Recycling Day every day with our award-winning hair tool recycling scheme. This remians to be the only one of it's kind in the industry - and something we are super proud of.
In 2022 we have big sustainabilty plans and commitments. To kick start this take a look at how you can get involved today...
We launched our Straightening Iron Recycling Scheme in 2019 which still remains the industry’s first and only initiative of its kind. Since then, we have expanded to recycling Curling Wands and Hairdryers and with your help and support we have saved thousands of tools from landfill - so we wanted to say a huge thank you!
But we're not stopping there, we are determined to smash our goal to save 1.5 million hair styling tools from creating unnecessary waste, given that currently 80% of electricals are still shockingly sent to landfill. So, if you have old, unwanted or broken Straightening Irons, Hairdryers or Curling Wands, whatever the brand you can recycle them with us for FREE.
You can do this in 3 simple steps…
- CLICK HERE AND COMPLETE THE ONLINE FORM TO DOWNLOAD YOUR PRE-PAID POSTAGE LABEL.
- PLACE YOUR OLD HAIR STYLING TOOLS IN SECURE PACKAGING.
- DROP AT YOUR NEAREST POST OFFICE, WE’LL SORT THE REST
“The amount of e-waste going to landfill, paired with the lack of awareness surrounding the severity of this waste stream growth is concerning. We know that the hair and beauty industry needs to take action, hence our mission to lead the industry in becoming more sustainable through our commitments to recycling and more.
Expanding our partnership with LSS is an important step, as we can now recycle hairdryers and curling wands as well as straightening irons. We are supported by one of the UK’s most advanced waste management operators, so our customers can take comfort in knowing that our service is disposing of their old hair tools in a sustainable manner, which adheres to WEEE regulations.”
- Martin Rae, Managing Director of CLOUD NINE
Once your old styling tool has been received it will either be reused, repurposed, or recycled. Our waste management partners take the products to the recycling hub, where all items are manually depolluted. All parts that can be recycled are removed and separated before the items are shredded. The components are then broken down into their raw materials for smelting. If we receive a pre-loved CLOUD NINE product that isn't at its end of life we can refurbish it, provide a new manufacturer’s warranty and re-sell it to a new home!
If you recycle your old hair styling tools TODAY on Global Recycling Day, you'll receive a FREE Eco-Friendly Water Bottle when you purchase a brand-new hair styling tool and use the code 'RECYCLINGDAY'.
