reen Lotus Salon and Wellness, located at 94 West Street in Cromwell, is not your typi-
cal salon. Green Lotus cares about their clients, their staff and the environment, and

begins with our commitment to creating a healthy environment.” says Emily Judd, Co-found-
er. “Green Lotus is an eco-friendly, clean air salon, which offers a healthier salon experience

Examples of Green Lotus Salon and Wellness’ eco-conscious business practices include
using natural daylight when possible, energy advantage lamps, energy efficient appliances,
sustainable cork flooring, no VOC paints, non-toxic cleaning supplies, and using recycled
products and recycle bins for paper, plastic, glass and cardboards. Some of the ways a salon can recycle is to save all clean hair

oil spills. Green Lotus Salon and Wellness supports other “green” minded businesses by carrying natural and organic products that
have been carefully chosen to meet the salon’s standard for high quality. They offer hair color that has no ammonia, fumes, animal
testing, animal products, plastics or sulfates. Hand picked ingredients, pure botanical extracts and eco-friendly packaging is just
some of the many benefits of their meticulous selection. Green Lotus Salon and Wellness promises to continue to bring only the
finest professional grade natural beauty care to their clients.

team. The salon promotes positive energy through uplifting music, and its “clean air” environment. The salon’s service team was
carefully chosen, not only for their skills, but also for their attitude toward customer service, and their endorsement of the salon’s
commitment to creating a healthy environment. Green Lotus Salon and Wellness offers free WIFI, a Loyalty/Rewards program,
monthly specials and a discount with the Let’s Go Arts program.
