Single-Use Towels: Why Are They Best For Your Eco-Friendly Salon?
Single-use salon towels are the way forward for eco-friendly salons and we are here to tell you why!
In 2022 it’s important we are all doing our part to become more sustainable to help offset our environmental impact – and lucky for you we’ve come up with the perfect single-use solution for salons and spas.
What are Single-Use Towels?
Single-use towels have become increasingly popular in the last couple of years purely for the number of benefits they can bring to the hair and beauty industry.
Single-use towels are designed to be used once per customer and then thrown away. We can see you panicking but unlike other industries, single-use is a good thing. £1,000’s of pounds and litres of water are wasted each year through the huge task of laundering cotton towels.
Which leads us to, how can single-use towels be cost-effective.
How are they cost-effective?
There is no doubt in our minds that single-use towels are much cheaper than washing reusable towels every day at your hair salon or spa.
We’re going to keep it super simple if you are a large salon with more than 500 clients, you could be saving up to £13,000 a year on your laundering costs with Scrummi! ((This calculation is based on using 2 towels per client and seeing 600 clients a week. With 2 washing machines and 2 dryers washing approximately 250 towels per day and approximately 5 staff hours a day, washing, drying and folding) We know, great value!
How do they save energy?
In the same way that they are saving money, single-sue towels are also saving you energy. Single-use towels save energy in several ways: firstly, you don’t have to launder them after each use – saving water and energy; secondly, you won’t need the added cost of drying them!
Think about all that laundry after back-to-back appointments, with Scrummi Original Waffle Salon Towels this is a thing of the past!
How are they sustainable?
And finally, these products are biodegradable and compostable! That means if you’re looking for a sustainable product that will break down naturally, single-use towels are right up your alley!
If you think about how many towels are used every day in the salons, ensuring the product is compostable makes a huge difference in helping to reduce pollution.
The beauty industry is one of the biggest polluters in the world which makes it even more important that we find ways of becoming greener.
