What is a disposable towel?

100% Natural.
100% Biodegradable.

Every human activity has an impact on our planet. It is Scrummi’s mission to minimise this impact at every stage of our product’s lifecycle.

What is a disposable towel we hear you ask?

Our Scrummi hairdressing towels start life as either eucalyptus or cedar trees in central Europe.

Woodland makes up approximately 42 % of the European Union’s (EU-28) landmass, while Austria is covered by up to 48 %. In all countries where Scrummi sources its wood supplies, reforestation exceeds the quantities harvested for sustainable usage by a third.

The trees are pulped and delivered to our factories as fibres, these fibres are then turned into the Scrummi salon waffle towel you know and love with a very economical and considered process.

All the water used in the process is filtered and recycled and all of our plants are monitored and have strict corporate and social responsibility guides in place.

The energy used in the entire lifecycle of a Scrummi disposable towel including its manufacture is less than the energy used by a washing machine to clean one single cotton hairdressing towel.

95% of Scrummi’s total shipping distance is done by rail and sea, which has the lowest environmental impact of any mode of transport.

Scrummi hairdressing towels are all produced in Europe! So wherever possible we aim to reduce our carbon footprint when organising transport and shipping.

Once the towels are in the UK we deliver to our customers via DPD. DPD also have a carbon neutral commitment with over 5 million parcels now transported on alternative energy vehicles.

Scrummi disposable towels contain no hidden plastics and will biodegrade to compost within 8-12 weeks!

All Scrummi products are 100% biodegradable or recyclable (colouring gown). Or Scrummi waffle products will biodegrade in about 100 days in an anaerobic environment. This is comparable to an orange peel!

Scrummi waffle products are 100% cellulosic so will act like wood or paper in many environments.

Super Absorbent.
Cost Saving.

Scrummi is up to 10x more absorbent than traditional cotton hairdressing towels so you only need one from wash to finish.

It’s made from 100% soft and natural biodegradable wood fibres from certified sustainable sources and is available in a range of disposable towel sizes starting from just 7p per towel.
