Nori's Eco Salon

Nori’s Eco Salon is a full service salon dedicated to green living and promoting wellness for their clients and our planet by creating a toxicfree environment. They provide hair salon services using only non-toxic, biodegradable products, and used no VOC paint on the walls and recycled denim as insulation. The owners of the salon were able to eliminate weekly water delivery by switching to filtered water. Instead of paper cups, water and tea are served in plastic and ceramic cups. Nori’s Eco Salon has been recycling cans, plastics and paper for the last 10 years. They have purchased an ENERGY STAR water heater and low-flush toilet, with a sign in the bathroom encouraging less water usage. To help create ventilation in the work space, they installed a second door, reducing the need for air conditioning. The energy savings have been tremendous. The salon also issues a monthly newsletter that informs clients on current personal care products policies, green practices and relevant ideas to encourage the public to make better choices for themselves and the planet. Nori’s Eco Salon is a certified Los Angeles Green Business and hosts an occasional Green Drinks Event that encourages networking and information sharing among local green businesses.
