What's all the buzz about?

There is so much talk and concern about the honey bees.  So many flowering plants depend on the honey bees for pollination. 

According to research and reports, the honey bees are dying.  Well why are they dying?  There are a couple of theories as to why, neither one of them are good. 

The first theory blames GMO crops.  GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms for those who do not know. A number of companies such as Monsanto and Dupont have genetically modified the seeds to withstand just about anything.  These seeds are now resistant to bugs, fungi and other parasites and hold larger yields which results in more profit, which is what these companies are after. Without any concern of the environmental impact or the detriment of bees, humans and other life on Earth. Greed is what motivates them, not human welfare. 

With that said, when the bees pollinate these crops and their immune systems cannot handle the pesticides and the now genetically modified plants, simply because they are being poisoned.  So their immune systems become weak and they fall prey to disease and die. 

The second theory is our beloved WI-Fi waves. Our cell phones, internets, and wireless everything.  These waves are thought to throw off the bees internal GPS if you will.  They cannot navigate themselves properly and cannot make it back to their hives. These waves also break down their immune systems and leave them open to sickness and disease. 

This is quite alarming because without the bees pollinating our crops, human starvation would be in epic proportions.   

There are things we can do to help stop this by purchasing non GMO foods whenever possible.  It is safe to say that most foods in our ordinary food stores such as Publix, Winn-Dixie and the like, are predominantly GMO foods. Unless they have a NON GMO verified label, you are ingesting GMO foods. Bad for you, bad for the bees, bad for everything.   Awareness, knowledge and activism are our main weapons against these companies who produce GMO foods.  

As a salon owner and stylist, I choose plant based hair color and plant based hair care products that are organic and non GMO.  Organic Color Systems and Shear Miracle Organics Hair Care products are in the forefront of responsible and sustainable Hair products. So whether it be a haircut or hair color that you need, John Bruno Salon provides the best in Hair services using organic products!  Join me in making the switch to organic and you will be buzzing with joy! 

Being a "green salon"

Good day everyone!

With so much going on in the world today, so much to do, so much to think about. How can we squeeze being more responsible and ethical in such a busy life? It's easy!

My ideal salon would be 100% green and sustainable. But alas, the salon is in the world we live in so I have to do the most I can do responsibly to leave as little  a carbon footprint as I can.

These are some of the things which make my salon quite green and somewhat sustainable.

First and foremost, I recycle EVERYTHING! It's easy to do and probably the most important when running a business, or household for that matter! Most everything in the salon is made of glass, drinking glasses, coffee mugs, etc, etc. Always use recycled paper products such as napkins and paper towels. Nothing food related is kept in plastic, only glass. The garbage bags are made of 100% compostable non gmo potato! So the things that are not for recycling that go in the garbage will decompose much quicker! The salon keeps water usage to an absolute minimum. And I only deal with privately owned, ethical, responsible and sustainable companies. Now my salon is very small so it is not difficult to be responsible. But it takes just a small amount of effort to do small things that make a huge impact on the environment! I work with two companies exclusively. Shear Miracle Organics Hair Care and Organic Color Systems. Both which are very responsible, very sustainable, vegan and cruelty-free. Both companies use responsible packaging when they ship their products which is very important!  All these ingredients make for very happy people, happy animals and an appreciative earth! So let's join hands and make our efforts, big and small to becoming a more compassionate, responsible society!

As a salon owner and stylist, it is my ethical duty to provide a clean, safe and sustainable salon for my clients, the animals, the earth and myself.

Have a compassionate day everyone!
