Our travel tins (sold as a pair) are the perfect zero-waste, high-style vessel, for transporting your hair bars around town, or while traveling afar. Pop your dry bars into these matte gold beauties, and toss them in your carry-on to breeze through airport security, or simply use them to bring your bars to the gym for a good sweat session!
With a unique design concept, our travel tins work to protect your precious bars between lathers, while on-the-go! The addition of bar lifts in the bottom of the tins, helps to promote drying while in transit, extending the life of your bars. However, they do not replace a bar dish with drainage, which should be used when you reach your destination.
Seamlessly constructed with 0.4mm aluminum (BPA-free), and with rounded edges that are rust-resistant. But, they do not have an internal plastic lining, therefore certain substances may cause the material to corrode. These travel tins should last for years to come, however, if end of life does occur, our tins are 100% recyclable.
Our hair bars last longest and perform best when allowed to dry between uses. As such, we do not recommend storing the bars in our travel tins while wet for long periods of time, or using as an in-shower holder. The bars do best when left to dry on a simple bar dish with drainage, away from spraying water while not in use. If the bars are wet and need to be stowed quickly, gently pat dry with a towel to limit excess water in the tin to maintain longevity of the bars.

Welcome to Shades of Green, I’m so glad you’re here!
When I opened the store in 2009 there wasn’t many options for sustainable, earth friendly products in our community. It was a bit hard at first to source these kinds of products but now with so many people getting on board with the Zero waste movement there’s so much more available. We love to support Local and Canadian Made products as much as possible but when we do source products made outside of North America we make sure they are Made responsibly in Fair Trade practices.
Thank you for visiting the shop and wherever you are on your earth loving journey we are here to help. Small changes everyday can make a big impact.
