November marks the transitionary period from vibrant fall foliage to winter’s beautiful crystal clear skies…and all the pale and muddy shades in-between.
While some may be delighted to see the seasons first snow flakes fall from the sky, others may not feel so cozy to the thought of the coming winter landscape. Nevertheless, we will continue with cheerful optimism – and what better to spread that November cheer but with the launch of a new Green Heroes Academy Contest!!! [I can already hear the forming snow flakes cheer from the skies] To celebrate Canada’s transition from Autumn to Winter beauty (and with it the coming holiday season), Green Heroes partnered with Donna Bishop’s Green Beauty salon to award November’s winner with a $125 certificate for use at the salon along with a consultation.
Green Beauty is a full service hair and beauty salon location in beautiful Lawrence Park in Toronto, as well as an online boutique. At Green Beauty, we are beauty fanatics who won’t sacrifice performance or quality in our skin care, make up or hair care. And we insist that these products are clean, healthy and safe for your entire family. How do we decide what’s safe? We don’t. We decide what works. Founder and makeup artist Donna Bishop tests every single product to ensure it meets our high performance standards (several brands are used on actors in films and TV series). We let the experts decide what is safe, like David Suzuki and Environmental Defense. That means there are no carcinogens (cancer-causing), endocrine disrupting (mess with your DNA), or animal testing (that’s right bunny—you’re safe). All the ingredients are listed, every single one, whether you buy online or come into the salon. No surprises. Love that.
To win the prize, this month’s action is to introduce us to your favourite eco store (for clothes or beauty products) and tell us why you like it.
