The World’s Original Plastic-Free Hair Ties
In 2012 we launched the first plastic-free, organic hair elastics. We haven’t stopped innovating since! We believe these are THE premium value hair ties on the market and both press (Vogue, Allure, Goop, Byrdie) and buyers seem to agree.
Supporting a Real Family Business
We’re Rachel and Jesse, the founders of KOOSHOO and parents to 2 young children.
We started this business because we want to make a difference in the world. This is why we use premium organic materials, socially conscious Fair Trade manufacturers, packaging made from post consumer waste paper and always design products that are exceptionally functional. We work closely with our factories (visiting regularly) and are proud to be transparent with every element of our business.
This industry is full of greenwashing and companies that never set foot in their factories. This doesn’t need to be the case. As a customer, you have immense power so please choose to support the future you want to see. We’re ever so grateful to welcome you to the KOOSHOO community!
Changing the Way you Think About Hair Ties
The hair elastics you’re used to seeing at your local pharmacy are not what they appear. They are a product crafted by big businesses that take no responsibility for what they make. Not to their factory workers, not to their dyers, not to the planet and not to you. They are deliberately disposable products that never break down.
Our Organic Hair Ties are what real value looks like. They won’t ever break on you, they’re machine washable so you can keep them clean and they’re accountable to every worker in the supply chain (Fair Trade cotton and cut & sew, Global Organic Textile Standard’s dye, Forest Stewardship Council’s 100% post-consumer waste paper…) so no one is taken advantage of. And perhaps most importantly, all inputs will fully break down in this lifetime – our lifetimes! They’re what real value looks like!
That Changes Now
KOOSHOO Hair Ties are the first 100% natural, plastic-free hair ties in the world . With 15 million synthetic (AKA plastic) hair ties lost or tossed daily in the USA, buying these Hair Ties is a small act that creates a big impact!
They’re pretty, look great on your wrist and you can feel proud about the ethics you’re supporting. But at the end of the day, these ponytail holders are all about function. No pulling, no hair tie headaches, no creases! Just a lot of super comfy love for your hair!
We stand behind what we make. While we can’t please everyone, the vast majority of people LOVE these Hair Ties. If you’re among the few that don’t, we fully promise satisfaction so get in touch and we’ll make it right!
Socially Conscious Business Practices
KOOSHOO’s plastic free hair ties are produced in a Fair Trade social-good facility run by nuns. Profits from the facility are used to fund a cancer treatment center for those without access to care.
BIODEGRADABLE AND BUILT TO LAST | These Hair Ties may be more expensive (because of organic and Fair Trade certifications) but they will last you far longer than cheap, disposable alternatives. Our Hair Ties are 2 times stronger than hair ties joined by glue and are machine washable. These are built to last in your hair but not in a landfill.
FAIR TRADE CERTIFIED MATERIALS & MANUFACTURING | Beware products that tell you nothing of how they are made. Here at KOOSHOO we’re all about fair and safe labor practices. These certified organic Hair Ties are made using fair trade natural rubber certified by the Fair Rubber Association. They are cut, sewn and packaged in a Fairtrade certified social-good facility run by nuns. Have questions? Ask us and we’ll proudly tell you all about the people making our products.
EASY CARE 5-PACKS | Your 100% recycled content package comes with 5 organic cotton, creaseless ponytail holders that look great on your wrist as bracelets. For best care, wash your ponytail holders cold and lay flat to dry.
HAPPY HAIR GUARANTEE | We’re a small family business that takes tremendous pride in what we do. If you’re not 100% satisfied, let us know and we’ll make it right.
