You’ve probably noticed by now that EcoSalon has a completely new look! This redesign is long overdue. We felt the site needed a refresh and a design that allowed for better discovery to expose all of the unique content EcoSalon has to offer!

This redesign is a work in progress which means you’ll continue to see us test new ideas to uncover what works and what doesn’t. I’m not a believer in perfection (I would never get anything done otherwise!). Our team felt launching the redesign with all its imperfections outweighed any negatives that came with it. We welcome your feedback on the site design (and content!) so be sure to let us know what you love about and would love to see us incorporate.

As we continue on this journey down the path of what it means to live a conscious lifestyle, I feel it’s even more important today to cover topics that are meaningful and relevant to living a progressive lifestyle. It is my hope that someday everyone will become global citizens and start thinking about the longterm consequences of their everyday actions on this planet. The human-induced climate change is evidence enough that our actions are having an unprecedented impact on the earth. According to NASA, the current warming trend is significant because it’s proceeding at a rate that has been scientifically unknown over the past 1,300 years.

Former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson (former CEO of Goldman Sachs), the man who helped stave off the second Great Depression of 2008 and guide the nation out of its financial crisis, and author of the new book, “Dealing with China, An Insider Unmasks the New Economic Superpower, recently stated in a CBS interview that there are two issues even more critical than the financial crisis: our relationship with China and the environment. He states, “When you look at the climate change crisis, it is cumulative,” he goes on to say it’s “more dire” than the financial crisis “because it threatens to change the way of life as we know it on our planet.”

We want to open the door to more conversations about tough topics like these that are important to you. We also want to have a little fun, laugh, play and help you look and feel fabulous inside and out with conscious fashion and natural beauty tips. Ladies, we want you to embrace your feminine sexuality confidently so you can enjoy more amazing sex, love and better relationships. Guys, we want to engage you more in these conversations and get your insights into these same issues.

With today’s broken healthcare system that’s getting more expensive everyday, we want you to take control of your wellness with prevention, which is why we added ‘wellness’ to our food vertical. We also want to have more conversations about solutions to our broken food system. And we want to highlight the people and companies doing good and creating positive change in this world.

Here’s the bottom line, we want to inspire you to live your best life and be your best self in a fun, inspired, way that also changes the world in the same way. We want everyone to live a conscious lifestyle, and have a heart.
