Hair Bands at Greenpicks

Sustainable Hairstyling Acessories for Women

Whether short hair or long locks, a hair band is a practical hairstyling accessory that holds the strands away from the face. Depending on the occasion and mood, the multifaceted hair ornament creates new hairstyles. With just a few flicks of the wrist, the stretchable hair tie changes the type and underlines the style of dress – from casual to elegant. There are many sustainable alternatives to conventional hair ties: hair bands that function as sporty headbands, bandanas, chaplets, hair bands, and hair clips in all variations.

The basics shine and glow in colour and quality and are available in different designs. Whether classic hair ties, chaplets or scrunchies – these hair bands change your style in a flash.

Zero Waste Scrunchies

Hair ties are small and banal, but they are also very helpful when it comes to quickly tying up your hairstyle. Many conventional hairstyling accessories are made of a blend of synthetic materials and polyester. All of these materials are not recyclable. In addition, conventional scrunchies are an environmental burden. Lost on the beach, left next to the picnic blanket, they involuntarily enter the ecosystem. Plastic may never fully decompose. Instead, it breaks down into smaller and smaller particles (microplastics) over time, polluting the oceans and the atmosphere in the meantime.

To prevent environmental pollution, scrunchies made of organic cotton and natural rubber or elastane are ecological alternatives. The raw materials for these come from certified organic farming and are sometimes even Fair Trade items (e.g. fair trade rubber). Natural rubber and organic cotton are dyed with vegetable dyes.

The eco-friendly scrunchies are plastic-free. Instead of plastic bags and cable ties, they are cased in minimalist packaging made of recyclable materials – plastic-free and following the zero waste principle.

Beautiful Hair Bands made from certified organic fabrics

Hair bands prove to be faithful companions all year round. They can be paired with both open and tied up hairstyles. They are produced under fair conditions directly in Germany and Europe. If overseas production sites are involved, they undertake to comply with the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI).

The materials also meet common eco-friendly standards. Organic cotton certified according to GOTS, STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, the Green Button and dyed according to NATURTEXTIL IVN certified BEST are just a few examples of organic hairbands. In addition, organic wool from farm animal welfare and housing and recycled polyester are used. Fashionably designed and made to last, all to protect people and nature. In this way, hairstyling accessories also make a sustainable contribution to reducing environmental pollution and conserving resources.

Eco-friendly Hair Accessories for Natural Hair

Whether they’re functional, ornamental, or a bit of both, hair accessories are an easy and expressive way to celebrate natural hair. Eco-friendly hair accessories are an extension of hairstyle and sustainable fashion sense. For perfect hair styling and to protect the environment, Greenpicks offers eco-friendly hairbands, hair ties and feminine hairstyling accessories.
