A barber shop in Chichester with impeccable green credentials has all the colors, products and even towels, water and electricity it uses to accommodate a climate crisis conscious client.
Frogg Hair Design is an ecological and organic salon and puts its ecological ethics into practice at all levels. All the electricity used by the show comes from a company called Ecotricity, which only puts electricity generated by wind or solar energy on its grid, while every towel and robe is biodegradable. Even the showers have special heads to limit water wastage.
