Orb Distribution Recognises Energy and Water-Saving Salons

Murphy Gozzard Hair Community is celebrating after being named top water-saving salon of the year by disposable towel pioneer Easydry. The salon saved an incredible 180,000 litres of water in 2013 by giving up cotton towels in favour of Easydry disposables.

At the same time Refoil, also distributed by Easydry’s Australian parent company, Orb Distribution, recognised its partner salons for the total 1.6 million litres of water and 100,000 kilowatts of energy they saved by using its premium quality recycled foils. At the top of the Refoil list was Wild Life Hair in Sydney, which conserved almost 50,000 litres of water and 2,700kw of energy.

By ending the phenomenal waste of water and energy used laundering cotton towels, Easydry salons between them saved more than 6.5 million litres of clean water over the course of 2013.

To mark this commitment to the environment, Orb has sent certificates to each of its salons detailing exactly how much water and energy they have saved by using Easydry and Refoil products.

Paddington’s Murphy Gozzard was one of 25 salons that saved more than 50,000 litres of water each.

“We’ve been using Easydry now for four years, and would never go back to the inconvenience, inefficiency and waste of cotton towels,” said Murphy Gozzard’s Brett McKinnon. “It’s fantastic to know that as well as being great for our team and our clients, using Easydry towels is such a positive for the planet. Of course we’re honoured to come top of the list, but in this case everybody wins.”

Orb general manager Gavin Hinton said all the salons should be proud of their contribution to a greener world.

“Water is an increasingly scarce resource and everybody needs to do what they can to make the most of every drop,” he said. “Sending out the certificates is our small way of saying thanks and well done to all the salons that have decided to stop pouring water and money down the drain and have instead chosen Easydry and Refoil.”
