Want to make your hair or beauty business more sustainable AND rid yourself of endless laundry?
You’re not alone! After a chance conversation with a Scottish salon owner in 2008, Scrummi founder Rob Cooper realised that the expensive and inefficient laundry cycle in spas and salons was a huge problem — for salon owners, for staff, and for the planet.
He saw there was a real need for a credible, sustainable alternative to cotton towels.
As a 4th generation textile entrepreneur, he knew he had the background and the knowledge of disposable products to really make a difference…...and so he set about creating a product that would change the face of the beauty industry.
Stop talking, start innovating
Rob’s goal was to produce a luxurious but sustainable and biodegradable towel that would work better than a washable salon cotton towel, while also improving productivity and hygiene.
It was important that the manufacture and supply of these towels were considered throughout the process to ensure that the entire life cycle had minimal environmental impact.
Some testing and some science
In 2010, after 18 months of testing and researching products with a local group of salon owners, the first Scrummi Towel was officially launched — a genuine biodegradable, disposable alternative to cotton towels for the hairdressing industry which reduces the environmental impact of salon towels by 90%.
UK-made, eco-friendly towels and products
From day one we recognised the importance of sustainability and ethics in everything that we do.
90% of our products are made within 500 miles of our head office in West Malling, Kent, England. This leads to close relationships with our supply partners and gives us complete visibility of our supply chain.
We verify the source of all of our products back through the fibre manufacturer and wood source to ensure our products do not contain wood from ancient forests or fibre from polluting factories.
We also stand behind our claims.
Everything we say and claim is independently checked and confirmed. Want to know how our towels are biodegradable? We’ll send you the test report. Worried about factory pollution? Come visit us to see for yourself!
