Ecostar Award Winner 2018

 

We are honoured to be the recipients of an Ecostar Award!

The Vancouver Island EcoStar Awards recognize outstanding environmental achievements and leadership by businesses, organizations and individuals.

“We are honoured and humbled to be recognized with this Ecostar Award, comments Leanne Boyd, owner of Level 10 Eurospa. It takes great salon and spa teams, diligently working  together, to help reduce our industry’s impact on the environment. The L10 Team is doing just that and I thank them every day for their commitment to making beauty beautiful. We are thankful to all our clients for supporting us in our green efforts and initiatives and we are thankful for all the other green leaders out there! Together we CAN make a difference!”

 

Greenest Retailer:

Honouring a progressive retail business which has reduced environmental impact in both operations & products sold.

At Level 10, we do everything in our power to reduce our environmental impact – both in our operations and products sold. We are proud to be a Green Circle certified, sustainable salon that diverts tonnes of salon/spa waste from landfills and waterways. We’ve also created and launched our own successful eco-friendly skincare and hair care lines.

We’ve always done our part with LED lighting, low-flow toilets, power-smart washers, composting and recycling – but now we manage over 95 per cent of our salon’s waste through the Green Circle Salon recycling and sustainability program (and the rest is compost!). Whatever cannot be recycled is ‘greenly’ incinerated, creating renewable energy that is directed back to the BC Hydro power grid.

LEVEL 10 EUROSPA’S DIVERSION STATS
Between July 2014 – July 2018: over 6 tonnes!
Total solid waste: 12,673 lbs kept out of the landfill
Total liquid waste: 270 lbs kept out of waterways

In October 2017, we installed an eco-friendly tankless water system and new showerheads on all of our sinks. We have new Noritz tankless water heaters that cut our water and heating bills by almost half – and we have dramatically reduced our carbon emissions. We have installed ECOHEADS salon showerheads, which are professional-grade showerheads designed specifically for the hair salon to use 65 per cent less water than the average salon showerhead. ECOHEADS showerheads save up to 330 liters per bowl, per day – reducing our water usage and emissions even further!

The average salon produces 821.76 kilograms of waste annually, and Canada’s salons produce 20,355 tonnes of waste per year combined.  We aspire to change this, one salon at a time, by leading the way with recycling and sustainability programs and innovative daily operations that divert tonnes of waste from landfills and waterways (to date, our salon has diverted over 6 tonnes of waste). We do everything in our power to support the vision of a sustainable salon industry by 2020.

Not only are we a certified Green Circle salon, the owner and operator of Level10, Leanne Boyd, stepped up and personally became a certified Green Ambassador in March 2017. We hosted an event with Jennifer Henry, GCS head of Global Brand Strategy, on May 8, 2017 where we invited other salons across the Comox Valley to bring a week’s worth of their salon’s waste to be recycled/repurposed, to learn how they can help reduce our industry’s environmental footprint, as well as help to create renewable energy. Out of the six local salons in attendance, three became certified Green Circle salons that day. Green Circle also planted a tree for each of the 30 attendants.                              

At Level 10 Eurospa, we were proud to be recognized for our efforts to lead our community in advancing environmental stewardship by being awarded the inaugural Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce Sustainability Award in 2016.

Level 10 Eurospa created and launched our own line of all-natural, environmentally friendly skincare products in 2010 and its sister line of haircare products in 2017. Our L10 Haute skincare line and L10 Haute haircare lines are made using naturally based emulsifiers, surfactants and essential oils to deliver exceptional results. They are paraben free, sulphate free, GMO free, cruelty free and produced with eco-friendly, clean manufacturing practices. Our product lines are made in Vancouver, BC, and produced using the cleanest, most eco-friendly methods possible. We manufacture in small batches to reduce waste, and all packaging is eco-friendly and recyclable.

We’re innovative in our daily operations and processes, as well. All our hair clippings are repurposed and used in hair booms to soak up oil spills, made into hair mats for emergency beds and used in the production of bioplastics. All our highlighting foils are reclaimed and recycled to be kept out of the landfill, all our excess hair colour and spa waste is redirected and turned into energy that goes straight to BC Hydro! We recycle all our glass (including nail polish bottles) and all aerosol hairspray cans. Of course, we compost all food waste and are recycling all papers, plastics and cardboards.

We also invite our clients to bring us all empty, unused, old and expired beauty products for us to divert and manage responsibly – even products they have not purchased at our salon. At Level 10 Eurospa we aspire to keep both our clients and the planet beautiful!
