Atlanta-based haircare company, Ecoslay has partnered with local urban farm, Truly Living Well Center For Natural Urban Agriculture to harvest ingredients for their popular plant-based hair care products.
Through this partnership, Ecoslay and Truly Living Well have planted okra, chamomile, marshmallow, and amaranth. On top of that, the two will soon plant flax, slippery elm, ginger and horsetail.
Already harvested ingredients like okra and amaranth can already be found in best-selling products like the Banana Cream, Jello Shot and the Sangria hair refresher.
“At Ecoslay, we believe in the power of community. With this partnership, we can ensure our hair products include fresh ingredients that are good for you, while also protecting the environment,” said Adria Marshall, Founder & CEO of Ecoslay. “We all win if we work together. Truly Living Well is doing wonderful things for our city by providing fresh produce for people and agricultural education for our youth.”
Ecoslay was created in Adria’s kitchen back in 2015 when she couldn’t find the right products for her natural curly hair. Adria spent countless hours mixing up concoctions to create what is known today as some of her best-selling products. Ecoslay believes in using only high-quality, natural, plant-based ingredients and sustainable packaging such as recyclable pouches and glass jars. Through this partnership, Ecoslay will be able to actively support the Truly Living Well farm which is located near Morehouse College.
“Truly Living Well and Ecoslay share a similar vision of caring for our community, and protecting our planet,” Marshall said. “Together we look forward to planting a more sustainable and green future for our local community, and our customers.”
