When starting my business I wanted to focus on maintaining an eco friendly, sustainable business - which meant aligning myself with like minded businesses and groups. One of the businesses I am particularly impressed by is Jaydoe Eco Hair, this Scarborough based salon is really leading the way as far as sustainable businesses go.
Upon entering the salon I immediately felt relaxed, I'm not sure if it was all of the greenery or the friendly staff. The aesthetics of the salon are stunning, lots of recycled raw wood and natural light make you feel right at ease.
The salon also uses the Ecohead shower heads. Each Ecohead has a high-pressure flow of seven litres per minute that uses 56% less water than a standard shower head. Based on an average daily output of 600 litres per basin, that equates to savings of 330 litres of water a day for each chair. Sub-micron filters remove all traces of sediment, rust and other impurities from the water, while tourmaline stones within the heads remove chlorine and generate negative ions that help smooth dry and damaged hair.
The salon also recycles all aluminum from foils, stocks natural eco friendly hair care products and are looking at starting a recycling station out the front of their salon. It was also an initiative of Jaydoe to donate $5 from every Love Grows plant sold instead of taking commission. The lovely staff are so passionate about running a sustainable business it has been an absolute pleasure working with them.
