Winning Ways with Awards

By | News | No Comments

We are bang in the middle of award season; that time when you go head to head with other great salon and businesses. It’s demanding and even a little scary, but just getting on a shortlist is a massive fillip to any business. Here at Easydry, we know a thing or two about tackling industry competitions. Internationally, we have a trophy cabinet bursting with awards dating back to 2009, when the company won Innovation of the Year at the British Hairdressing Business Awards. Since then we’ve picked up a slew of wins for sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurialism, including 2010 Entrepreneur of the Year at Australia’s Expo awards. So we’d like to share some of our experience and outline what we reckon it takes to be a winner. First, target the competitions and categories that are right for you.

A Christmas Pressy for the Planet

By | News | No Comments

Here at Easydry, we’re so excited about Christmas – pulling crackers, tearing open presents and drinking more than is good for us. But Christmas is a time for giving, so why not this year give the planet a break – and make it a season to celebrate sustainability? While we don’t want to sound like Scrooge or the Grinch, it can be a time of wanton waste as much as goodwill, but instead of going all bah humbug and turning your back on the whole thing, just follow our Easydry guide for a greener season. Christmas tree Most of us go for fake trees over real ones. If you’ve got a fake tree, be sure to make it last as long as possible. If not, or if your plastic greenery is starting to look more like the ghost of Christmas past, a real tree is probably more eco-friendly. There are…

By | News | No Comments

As huge swathes of eastern Australia, including the coastal areas, struggle with the driest year since the Federation Drought of 1902, there is finally some good news on the environment front. Well, we hope so. The world’s two biggest producers of greenhouse gases, American and China, shook hands in a historic deal to limit their countries’ carbon emissions adn also acknowledged their leading role in the fight to stop the world heating up. It’s a move that can’t come to soon. Things have been hotting up, not just here at home, but also globally ever since people started burning coal in industrial amounts more than a century ago. And over the past two or three decades the process has gone into overdrive. If you’re a glacier, that’s pretty bad news. And if the glaciers are in trouble, so are we. Across the world, the glaciers have been retreating almost as…
