The Eco in EcoSalon

The “Eco” in EcoSalon

We write about products that are earth-friendly and socially responsible. We believe it’s important to celebrate technological development, innovation and fair trade in addition to eco-friendly materials and green design. We do not accept payment for the products we recommend, although on rare occasions we may publish sponsored articles from brands aligned with our values (and when that happens, we disclose it fully). If you have a story idea or product of merit – or if you’re a designer or artist – feel free to drop us a line.

EcoSalon was launched in 2008 under the editorial direction of Sara Ost, founding Editor-in-Chief and Publisher.
