A hair salon in New Zealand appropriately called “The Powder Room” has won an awesome eco award to distinguish it from the many other salons in the area.
The Powder Room won the coveted “Wella Sustainable Salon of the Year” award which means its THE most earth friendly place in New Zealand to get your shag cut. The award itself is part of the Kitumba 2013 Hair Sustainability awards program.
Some of the things they do or have done to gain this attention and win the coveted award include; using eco shampoos, recycling of magazine to nearby hospitals, using fair trade coffee, vegetable garden in its courtyard. Even some of the furniture is sustainable such as the front desk table which is made using vintage glass shower doors. The sign outside the door that houses the salons name was made from old mirrors, a coat rack and a gently used coffee table.
