Hair Recycling

Clean-up ocean oil spills with donated hair extensions!

As a company, we are committed to improving the way we work to ensure that we always work in a fair and eco-friendly way. As one of the leading suppliers of hair extensions in the world, we sell tonnes of hair per year, which ultimately end up in landfills once the customer has finished and moved onto a new set.

We are delighted to have teamed up with the Matter of Trust programme in the USA for their Clean Wave Campaign to promote the awareness and environmental impact of waste fibre recycling.

Why is it important to recycle your hair extensions?

Hair has long been known for its quality to absorb oil, donated hair extensions are turned into special mats which are set to work in oil leaks to effectively soak up oil spills.

How do I recycle my Milk + Blush hair extensions?

Instead of throwing away your unwanted hair extensions, simply post them back to us and we will donate the hair to the Clean Wave Campaign. From then, they will take hair clippings and surplus hair extensions from salons, fur from pet groomers and fleece from farmers to use in storm drains to soak up major oil spills. Hair is particularly good at absorbing oil and, when it's turned into hair mats, it traps the debris to help clean up the water.

How do I donate?

You can now return the unwanted hair extensions 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. To take part in our hair recycling scheme and support the Clean Wave Campaign, we simply ask you to tie the bundle of hair extensions together at the top and post back to us, labelled as follows:
