Refill Norwich – let’s stop plastic pollution

As many of you know, we here at Jo Jordan hair salon think it is so important to look after the planet! One of our biggest concerns is Plastic Pollution.

Plastic pollution is the “accumulation of plastic products in the environment that affects wildlife, wildlife habitats and humans. Plastics that act as pollutants affects land, waterways and oceans”

A plastic bottle can last 450 years in a marine environment slowly fragmenting piece by piece. It’s a fact that plastic pollution can be found on every beach in the world, from busy tourist beaches to uninhabited tropical islands. For us being in North Norfolk, surrounded by beautiful beaches, they are becoming more and more polluted because of plastic waste.

You may be wondering what we’re doing to help? Well, we have teamed up with a group called Refill Norwich! Refill is a national practical tap water campaign that aims to make refilling your water bottle as easy, convenient and cheap a possible by introducing refill points in every street. We are a refill point here in Holt and not only are we refilling water bottles but we are doing a refill service for your Matrix RAW shampoo and conditioner bottles.

What is also great about Refill is that you can download their app on any iPhone and android product and each time you go to a refill station you just simply tap where you have refilled and earn points. We are located on their refill map so pop in and fill up!

Along with this, we have also stopped using plastic gloves, plastic capes and plastic hair caps and have replaced them with reusable ones resulting in less plastic wastage!
