Hey there, eco-conscious beauty enthusiasts! Have you ever stopped to ponder the impact of your luscious hair products on the environment?

The Green Revolution

Here in Canada, which is known for its breathtaking landscapes and abundant natural resources, we’re at the forefront of the global green revolution. From the majestic Rocky Mountains to the pristine waters of the Great Lakes, Canadians are witnessing firsthand the importance of preserving our environment. Sustainability isn't just a buzzword here – it's a way of life that extends to even the most personal aspects, like our beauty routines.

Here, an estimated 98% of households participate in some form of recycling, yet we are well aware that only 8% plastics can actually be recycled due to the overabundance of it piling up in our landfills. This reflects a growing consciousness about our ecological footprint and a willingness to take action.

Our beauty rituals are no exception.

As more Canadians recognize the dire impact that conventional hair products have on our ecosystems, the demand for eco-friendly alternatives has soared. The quest for enviable hair is evolving into a superhero move for the planet, and we have the stats to prove it.

According to a recent study, approximately 86% of plastic waste found in Canadian water bodies is single-use plastic, including packaging from personal care products like shampoos and conditioners. This revelation has ignited a nationwide conversation about the need to reduce our plastic consumption and opt for sustainable alternatives.

Moreover, a survey conducted by Ipsos found that 72% of Canadians consider environmental protection and sustainability important factors when making purchasing decisions. (Source: Ipsos Public Affairs, "Sustainability in Canada", 2022) This shift in consumer attitudes has propelled companies to reevaluate their offerings and cater to this growing demand for eco-friendly products.

That's right, we've taken it upon ourselves to craft hair products that are not only friendly to the planet but also have a knack for disappearing in nature's embrace – fully biodegradable hair products right here in Canada, HURRAY! It's not just about hair; it's about showing some serious love to this planet we call home! 🌱🌎

Eco-Chic All the Way

Gone are the days when eco-friendly products meant bland, hippie concoctions that smelled like fake apples (not that we have anything against apples!). Today's eco-chic offerings bring you the best of both worlds – stunning hair and a guilt-free conscience – like our innovative shampoo bars and our Hair Renew Mask. Imagine lathering up with a shampoo that's as gentle on your hair and scalp as it is on the ocean's delicate ecosystems: That’s OBLOOM, like a spa day for you and Mother Earth, all in one!
