Toronto Eco Friendly Salon
We divert 99% of our waste.
We're so happy to see this becoming the standard. We issue electronic receipts (or you can opt out completely), and all of our forms are created online. This means that it's easier for everyone, and it's not hard on the environment. We also know that email storage actually requires a lot of electricity so we try to work efficiently, and clear out our inboxes regularly.
Being an online store, it creates some challenges in our impact on the planet. We start by offering local pickup at the studio in Toronto and using Offset to balance our carbon emissions on anything that must be shipped. Our online orders are packed in the smallest package possible, and surrounded by either recycled packing paper (from our orders!) or dissolvable corn packing peanuts.
We use the best products with the lowest amount of toxins, or NO toxins in them to reduce contamination going into our waterways. We partner with like minded companies that also have a commitment to sustainability, and when possible are local to reduce shipping impacts. The products we stock are meant to last a long time, whether it's a more concentrated shampoo or a good quality brush.
Our Holistic Approach
We believe that supporting healthy hair is not just the products you buy (in fact we usually recommend less products rather than more), but also the lifestyle and the habits of a person. We offer products that not only support your body but will last you a long time.
Our holistic approach also extends to our team. We believe in balancing work and life, fair pay, and mental health support (oh and sitting down for lunch). We believe supporting individuals, also supports the community and our planet.
