Clic Recycle's mission is to foster a sustainable and thriving circular economy where materials never become waste and nature is regenerated. Our commitment revolves around implementing innovative solutions that prioritise environmental conservation while harnessing the vast potential of a valuable and abundantly available regenerative resource - human hair.

Through responsible practices of waste reutilization transformed into organic eco-friendly solutions, we aim to minimise waste and ecological footprint where these products can contribute to eliminating the use of plastic in many industries.

Hair Waste

Our planet is home to an exponential resource of 8,1 billion people. Every year 2.2 billion kg of hair waste is generated globally from hair salons and ends up in landfills or burnt causing significant harm upon our environment.

Hair waste is today mostly sent to landfills or burned causing significant harm upon our environment. When human hair waste is disposed of in plastic bags and ends up in landfills it produces methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that is released into the atmosphere. When human hair waste is burnt it also releases extremely toxic gases which worsen air quality. Furthermore it can clog drains and waterways.

Recycling Hair Waste

Human hair can be recycled and converted into new products with many possible uses, but they require hair to be disposed of in a responsible way in order to mitigate any environmental risks.

Through our recycling service and waste management system the hair waste is processed into new products minimising the negative impact on the environment.

How does our Closed Loop Hair Recycling work

1. Sign up to the circular recycling service of waste collection. (It is also available as an application on Android & iOS.)

2. Receive your CLIC RECYCLE waste collection kit, together with our seal to show your engagement in the green movement, then start collecting your salons hair waste!

3. Download our application to have all your information, services and impact analysis in one place making it easy to see how much hair waste your salon has saved from landfill, together with the water and electricity usage and savings. Receive news and education directly in the app shared within the Clic Recycle community.

4. When all waste bags are full they are collected by CLIC RECYCLE.

5. Through your preferred subscription new waste collection bags are delivered to your salon so you can keep recycling.

What products do we make

Through our hair waste recycling service we have an innovative formula to create organic eco products for marine preservation, regenerative agriculture as well as natural fibre products for design and architecture. You can view all products and services here.

How can I buy products?

If you are a hairdresser you can download our mobile application and register for our Hair Recycling Service.

Our other products are made for custom scales and are made to order. For details contact us through our form or send an email to:

Circular Economy

The circular economy is a system where materials never become waste and nature is regenerated. In a circular economy, products and materials are kept in circulation through processes like maintenance, reuse, refurbishment, remanufacture, recycling, and composting.

The circular economy tackles climate change and other global challenges, like biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution, by decoupling economic activity from the consumption of finite resources. In our current economy, we take materials from the Earth, make products from them, and eventually throw them away as waste – the process is linear. In a circular economy, by contrast, we stop waste being produced in the first place.

Regenerative Agriculture

Regenerative agriculture is a term for holistic farming and animal grazing practices that restore biodiversity in degraded soils, rebuild the natural organic matter in the soil, improve the water cycle and, through photosynthesis, draw carbon from the atmosphere into the soil where it is stored. The basis of regenerative agriculture is a land management philosophy that involves improving soil health while building nutrient density and crop resilience.

This can be achieved by replacing existing plastic products in agriculture with organic and vegan alternatives.

Ocean Pollution

86% of water is contaminated by man made activity with large amounts of pollutants, solid waste, micro plastics and large carbon emissions. Marine pollution is a combination of chemicals and waste from man made activities with damage to the environment, the health of all organisms, and to economic structures worldwide. Most of this pollution comes from land sources - washed or blown into the ocean, but also from marine products.

Plastic Pollution

Many marine products are mostly plastic based, slowly degrading by natural forces into micro plastics that are released into the sea. Plastic pollution is a global environmental crisis that threatens ocean health, the health of marine species, food safety and quality, human health, coastal tourism, and contributes to climate change. There is an urgent need for efforts to reduce plastic consumption, improve waste management, and promote sustainable alternatives to safeguard the health of our oceans.

Hydrocarbons and Heavy Metals

Hydrocarbon and heavy metal pollution in the sea represent significant threats to marine ecosystems. Hydrocarbons, often originating from oil spills and industrial discharges, can have devastating effects on marine life. These pollutants can coat the surfaces of marine organisms, disrupting their respiratory and feeding mechanisms. Oil spills, in particular, can result in long-lasting damage to coastal habitats and harm fish, mammals, and seabirds. On the other hand, heavy metals like mercury, lead, and cadmium, primarily released through industrial processes and runoff, accumulate in marine sediments and organisms. These metals pose serious health risks to marine life and can enter the human food chain, impacting seafood safety. Effective measures to prevent and mitigate hydrocarbon and heavy metal pollution are crucial for preserving the health and biodiversity of our oceans.

Blue Economy

Clic Recycle's mission is to foster a sustainable and thriving blue economy. Our commitment revolves around implementing innovative solutions that prioritize environmental conservation while harnessing the vast potential of our oceans. Through responsible practices of waste reutilisation transformed into eco-friendly aquaculture methods, we aim to minimise waste and ecological footprint of our products.

Our comprehensive approach not only supports the health of marine ecosystems but also contributes to the economic well-being of communities. By integrating cutting-edge technologies and environmentally conscious strategies, we strive to strike a harmonious balance between economic development and the preservation of our precious marine environment. Join us on the journey towards a resilient and sustainable blue economy, where environmental stewardship and economic prosperity coexist seamlessly.
