PONY-O Ponytail Holders: Better for the planet, better for your wallet.

The earth is something we all have in common and PONY-O is doing its part.

Earth Day is a time when hundreds of millions of people, worldwide, come together to help bring about awareness to environmental issues and become better stewards of our beautiful planet. Earth Day has become the largest secular observance in the world since its inception in 1970, transforming public attitudes and reminding us that we each have a part to play when it comes to protecting our planet.

There are millions of hair elastics in landfills and littering the landscape. The next time you take a walk, whether its from your car to the store, or on a walk in the park, notice how many hair ties are on the ground. The number will probably surprise you. At a cost of pennies each and sold in multipacks from 30-100, it's no wonder they're easily lost and uncared for. Since elastics are made from synthetic rubber (a petroleum by-product), these disposable throw-aways will never decompose.

Plastic, like the plastic claw, comb and headband, is one of the most persistent pollutants on the planet. Plastic does not decompose, and every claw clip you've thrown away is still alive and well in the landfill.


Not only is the PONY-O hair friendly, it's environmentally friendly. Our unique, patented design is extremely durable, lasting hundreds of uses. This durability means PONY-O bendable ponytail holders cost less than pennies per wear, which is a low price for damage-free hair and an eco-friendly hair tie.

The silicone coating and copper core inside is also recyclable/reusable. Copper is man's oldest metal and can easily be recycled without any loss in its property. It's a logical choice for a sustainable product.

Silicone is non-toxic and sand-based. It's used in many applications, from the healthcare industry to the food industry. According to numerous regulatory agencies in Canada, "silicone materials satisfy regulatory requirements for human health and the environment." Like copper, silicone can also be recycled/reused many times without losing its structural integrity.

When you order from PONY-O, your order also comes with zero packaging waste.

As a bonus: PONY-O hair ties and BUN BARZ hair bun makers are Vegan, as well as animal-friendly. This combination is an all-around win for the planet!

So...not only is PONY-O high ponytail holder better for your hair, it's better for your wallet AND better for the planet. It may seem small and insignificant, but when we all do our part, it adds up to make a HUGE difference. After all...we only get one Earth. Let's treat her well.
