100% Biodegradable 100% Compostable 100% Recyclable
Starting October 1, Mango is switching to eco-friendly compostable towels at the shampoo bowl. The soft and absorbent EasyDry towels are made of wool fibers using a new technology to create a luxurious disposable towel. EasyDry designed the towels to be the right size and thickness to replace cotton towels in hair salons. The towels are manufactured without the use of chemicals, and they provide an effective and easy alternative to cotton towels.
WHY MANGO IS MAKING THE SWITCH?
Our team washes hundreds of loads of laundry each week, using lots of water and energy. Conserving water is the top thing salons can do to become greener. Because our towels get bleach and color on them, they have a short shelf life. Replacing and disposing of cotton towels frequently and continuously using water in washing cotton towels create unnecessary drains on our the environment.
HOW WILL WE BE USING EASYDRY TOWELS?
On our guests at the shampoo bowl, to dry and wrap their hair after your shampoo. These towels are actually better for your hair because cotton and terry cloth towels can cause damage to the hair
WHAT CAN GUESTS EXPECT AT THEIR NEXT VISIT?
We will continue to use cotton towels for our hot towels, but an EasyDry towel will be used to dry and wrap your hair after your shampoo.
WHERE WILL THE DISPOSED DISPOSABLE TOWELS END UP?
Our local partner Earth Options, is collecting the towels once a week to compost them. They provide a biodegradable bag to dispose of the towels, so they will not go into plastic bags or be loaded into our regular trash bins.
