They’re soft, stylish and sustainable – that’s right, scrunchies are back in fashion and we couldn’t be happier! Not only are these fabric hair ties gentler on hair than traditional elastic bands, they can be gentler on the planet too. To celebrate the return of this humble hair accessory, we’re sharing eight eco-friendly scrunchie brands we love.
Australian-made label Eloïse Panetta is motivated by feminine empowerment and has an ethical approach to fashion. Their botanically dyed silk scrunchies are crafted from fabric off-cuts, meaning each has a unique pattern. Not only do these scrunchies prevent hair breakage, they’re a truly zero-waste alternative too!
If you’re after a simple scrunchie that is simply good for the planet, then Bar None has your back. Their biodegradable scrunchie is plastic free and compostable, and is made from cotton fibres and natural rubber from the sap of the rubber tree. No hair snags, and no waste – perfect!
Crafted from off-cuts from sustainable botanic fibres, these TAMGA Designs scrunchies are as sustainable as they are stylish! If you’re seeking an eco-friendly hair accessory with bold earthy colours and prints, then these scrunchies might be the ones for you.
If you’re a linen lover, then Eloise et moi has the linen scrunchie for you. The scrunchies are handmade in their studio in New Mexico, and are plant dyed with pigments from roots, leaves, food scraps and natural dyes. With a biodegradable nylon headband inside, these beauties are also plastic free.
If bold prints and colours make your heart beat a little faster, then these Australian-made scrunchies from Tropica Store & Studio are sure to brighten your day. Made using the scraps of fabrics leftover from other pieces, these vibrant scrunchies give new life to fabric that would otherwise end up in landfill. Talk about a win win!
The Malala Scrunchie from Hara is made from the off cuts of OEKO-TEX 100 approved organic bamboo fabric and natural plant dyes. Plus, 100% of the profits go to The Malala Fund to champion every girl’s right to 12 years of free, safe, quality education.
