Additional Lengths believes that as a company it should be environmentally responsible where possible. Recycling and supporting the environment for future generations is highly important, as one of the leading sellers and manufacturers of hair extensions in the UK we sell over 4 tonnes of raw hair per year. This ultimately ends up in the rubbish during removal which then ends up in landfills once the client has finished and moved onto a new set. This is a huge waste and has a big effect on the environment, we looked for a solution.
We have teamed up with Matter of Trust in the USA for their Clean Wave Campaign. You can now return the hair to our head office where we collect the extensions and regularly ship the donations to the states where Matter of Trust will recycle the hair. They will turn the hair extensions into either ‘hair mats’ or ‘hair booms/bags’ to protect the environment from oil spills and to filter water at storm drains. Hair is particularly good at absorbing oil and, when matted, traps debris to help clean the water.
We will accept any brand of hair extensions, we simply ask you tie the bundle of hair extensions together at the top and post back to us, labelled as follows:
1-3 Norton Road
Stockton on Tees
Please add a note to confirm who has sent the hair in so that we can thank you and reward our regular recyclers with various awards and prizes throughout the year.
TOP TIP: Collect a few hair extension removals and post back together to save money on postage.
