Across Australia’s capital cities, a host of brave shavers took to the stage to raise money for the World’s Greatest Shave… And this year, we went with them!
On every World’s Greatest Shave stage stood the Sustainable Salons recycling bins. We collected dozens of hair colour spray cans, kilos of hair clippings, and hundreds of ponytails! For the first time in World’s Greatest Shave history, we saved all of these resources from ending up in landfill. Instead, they’re now being used to create wigs for those in need or to mop up oil spills!
“It was amazing to be a part of the World’s Greatest Shave!” says Paul Frasca, Sustainable Salons co-founder. “We love partnering with this incredible organistion and doing our bit to end the fight against blood cancer… and the amount of hair and ponytails we can collect through this one campaign alone will have a huge impact on so many lives. We hope to be lending our bins for many years to come!
A whopping $13 Million has so far been raised by the World’s Greatest Shave this year to fund blood cancer research... and the tally will continue to climb until June!
And more than $26,800 of this was raised by an incredible team of Sustainable Salons members! Our Super Team more than doubled our donation goal, causing a HUGE win for the fight against blood cancer.
