Our Ethos

Australians are the second highest producers of waste per person in the world, with each of us sending almost 690 kilograms of waste to landfill each year. The hair industry has traditionally been known to be huge consumers of water and energy. Salons are also typically full of toxic chemicals and produce a large excess of waste.

 

Owner Diego Padilla Vargas has taken years of experience in the hair industry - in consultation with the health industry and the community - to ensure The Sustainable Salon is doing their bit to ensure we have a future for generations to come. We are a transparent Organisation and here is how we achieve our mission:​

  • All our Colour and product solutions are derived from leading sustainable beauty company Davines( Italian made).

  • Davroe 100% Vegan friendly, natural plant and flowers extracts, 100% Australian made and owned.

  • We recycle and support our resource waste management solutions (paper, metal, hair, razors, chemical and plastic waste)

  • We were Australia's first salon to use energy efficient technology from Tivok heat pumps for our hot water solutions

  • Our energy utility provider is from 100% renewable sources - Red Energy

  • Eco shower heads for our wash basins
