WINNER: Élan Hair Design
Élan Hair Design of Inverurie, Aberdeenshire is a family hairdresser with a commitment to the environment. The business embarked upon an eco-friendly project which has included a £250,000 refurbishment of its premises followed by the implementation of a series of working practices which have allowed the salon to cut its carbon emissions by 94% and divert 95% of its waste from landfill.
Additionally, Élan has cut its water consumption by 82% while a raft of savings in what is an energy intensive industry has allowed the business to grow to become the UK’s most eco-friendly hair salon.
