GIVING AND ENVIRONMENT

At MISS FOX, we firmly believe businesses should contribute to the wellbeing of people and the planet, not be devoted solely to maximising profit. For this reason, we look to integrate social and environmental concerns into our operations on a daily basis.

ENVIRONMENT

We only have one precious and beautiful planet. We believe the beauty industry should operate sustainably and ethically. Our philosophy is to minimise our impact on the environment through conscious choices, and we are continuously working to improve our operations in this regard. Some of our current initiatives and intentions include:

  • We utilise all-natural, chemical-free and organic products wherever possible in every treatment. 
  • We work with cruelty-free brands (with the exception of permanent hair colour for which we are actively seeking a functional alternative).
  • We support many local suppliers and manufacturers and we purchase in bulk to minimise carbon footprint from transport of stock.
  • We serve local produce and refreshments featuring handmade, vegan and organic catering and bar options.
  • We use eco-friendly 100% biodegradable towels made from certified renewable sources. They are completely recyclable and save water and energy otherwise spent on laundering.
  • We use bio-degradable garbage bags and operate a recycling system.
  • We use forest-friendly recycled tissues and toilet papers from whogiveascrap.org, who also donate 50% of profits to developing communities.
  • We run a paperless office where possible by doing away with invoices and bulky printed brochures and menus,and use eco paper stocks and bags made with recycled content. 
  • We use energy efficient light globes in all of our fittings and subscribe to Green Power.
  • We educate clients on living healthier lifestyles, encouraging walking and riding over driving, eating unprocessed fresh and organic foods over packaged meals, reducing their body weight and improving their health, minimising both environmental impact and strain on the health system.
  • We use the most natural alternatives to harsh cleaning chemicals where appropriate within healthcare guidelines.
  • We offer various vegan friendly treatments on our spa menu with more available in future.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions to further contribute to the health and wellbeing of our planet.
