It is with Great pleasure that we introduce to you Dr. Rick Munn and The Colorado Health and Wellness Center at My Hair Trip, the Sustainable Beauty Shop.
As many of you know, our space is rather large and we have space to spare. We have a large gallery that in the past, we have rented to photographers, massage therapists, Yoga and dance instructors, etc.
We have always hoped that the gallery would be used by someone permanently. We posted a public request for any renters needing space and that’s how we met Dr. Rick and Nicole Munn from The Colorado Health and Wellness Center.
We are thrilled that our shop will now also be home to Dr Rick and The Colorado Health and Wellness Center! We invite all to come down and check out what they are all about this Friday during the Art walk from 6 – 9pm. Dr Rick will be offering a FREE computerized spinal stress check for anyone interested, as well as, HALF OFF their First visit! So if you know anyone who is interested or who you think might benefit from Network Spinal Analysis this is a valuable and fun way to have them check it out!
What Dr Rick does is called Network Spinal Analysis (NSA – formerly known as Network Chiropractic) care helps people “break the cycle” of chronic pain, tension, overwhelm, exhaustion, and being stressed out, so they can fully express their vitality, passion, and clarity.
By creating novel, embodied strategies for new levels of health and personal growth, studies demonstrate that NSA care can help people with conditions ranging from back pain, ADHD, and infertility to PTSD and substance abuse.
It can also predictably enhance physical health, emotional/mental well being, and life enjoyment across the board. People engaged in Network Care tend to make healthy lifestyle changes more easily and spontaneously.
My Hair Trip and Colorado Health and Wellness are a match made in heaven! Thank you for taking the time to read this update and we hope to see you this Friday at 8th and Santa Fe!
Look Good. Feel Good. Be Good.

Modular Mobile Home Offers Easy Transport and Assembly for Living Off-the-Grid in Style
Prefabricated architecture is known for its mobility, allowing people to live in faraway and previously isolated locales. Colectivo Creativo Arquitectos has created VIMOB in this vein, designing it as a modular home that can be easily transported and assembled.
The 398-square-foot dwelling has a rustic aesthetic. It features a patchwork of timber on the exterior, in addition to a wood-finished interior that uses oriented strand board (OSB) for its walls and pine on the ceilings. Boasting an open-floor plan, the living, dining, and kitchen flow into one another, with two bedrooms and a bathroom located at the opposite end of the space. Full-height windows and large patios help to extend these areas towards the outdoors and create an airy and unrestricted feel in the home.
VIMOB was meant to travel to remote sections of the world—its first prototype was placed in the lush area of Matapalo, Colombia. To make this possible, the architects limited the amount of supplies and labor that would be required to construct the building. They developed a pier-and-beam foundation system, which generates less raw material waste and minimizes its carbon footprint. All you need is a basic set of tools and you’ll have a home exactly where you want it.

No matter what laws are passed, treaties are signed, or new technologies are developed, combating climate change will ultimately come down to changing human behavior. So it’s essential to understand what motivates us to behave in environmentally responsible ways.
A new longitudinal study, conducted in two countries, finds holding pro-green views does not necessarily correspond to Earth-friendly behavior. Surprisingly, neither does feeling a close connection to the natural world.
But you can get a good idea of who will live a sustainability focused, light-footprint life if you consider the long-range goals they have set for themselves.
A person determined to achieve wealth and/or power is unlikely to behave in “green” ways, no matter what he may preach. But someone focused on self-realization, service to others, and/or community involvement very likely will.
“We conclude that focusing on intrinsic, rather than extrinsic, life goals may be important not just for individuals’ well-being, but also for the well-being of future generations,” writes a research team led by Wenceslao Unanue of Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez in Chile. Their study is published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology.
Unanue and his three colleagues conducted a longitudinal study in both a developed and a developing nation: Great Britain (where they surveyed 461 people) and Chile (76 people). Participants, who were recruited from university alumni lists in both countries, were initially questioned in 2010, then again in 2011 and 2012.
The survey featured sets of questions designed to measure life goals, pro-environment worldviews, the degree to which they identified with the natural environment, and whether they engaged in one or more of 10 environmentally responsible behaviors.
In the “life goals” section, participants reported (on a scale of one to seven) how important they considered a series of aspirations, including “to have my name known by many people,” “to successfully hide the signs of aging,” “to grow and learn new things,” and “to have good friends I can count on.”
For the “environmental identification” section, they reported their level of agreement with such statements as “For me, engaging with the natural environment gives me a greater sense of who I am.” “Environmental responsible behaviors” included taking public transportation when feasible, and boycotting companies that engage in harmful environmental practices.
Comparing attitudes in 2010 with behaviors two years later, the researchers found “life goals prospectively predicted environmentally responsible behavior,” while “rather unexpectedly, environmental worldviews and environmental identification did not.”
Specifically, they report that, in both Chile and the United Kingdom, “the endorsement of extrinsic life goals, at the expense of intrinsic ones, was associated with less ecological behavior.”
The researchers found some evidence that less materialistic life goals and environmentally friendly behavior may be mutually reinforcing. This makes sense: Engaging in activities like recycling or bicycling to work helps you fulfill the goal of being a responsible citizen, and that feeling of accomplishment presumably reinforces that positive behavior.
The finding that pro-environment political views and identification with nature did not predict “green” behavior was an unwelcome surprise. But, intriguingly, Unanue and his colleagues report that, for many people, actions come first, and attitudes follow.
“Our results suggest that pro-environmental worldviews, as well as environmental identification, might be better understood as consequences, rather than as antecedents, of environmentally friendly behaviors,” the researchers write.
They note that, among their British participants, “environmentally responsible behavior predicted pro-environmental worldviews, which in turn predicted environmental identification.”
“In order to feel that their behavior is consistent with their attitudes and identities, people may sometimes change their attitudes and identities to fit their behavior,” they add.
So, “fake it ’til you make it” may be good advice not just to alcoholics, but also to people who aspire to accumulating money, fame, or power. Start doing your part for the planet, and you just might find your goals starting to shift from fleeting, worldly success to ensuring the well-being of future generations.

Shoppers making ethical purchases, such as buying organic food or environmentally friendly cars, are generally seen as more virtuous – unless they’re receiving government assistance. If ethical shopping is funded by welfare cheques, those shoppers are judged as immoral for taking advantage of public generosity, according to a new UBC Sauder School of Business study.
“People on welfare tend to be seen as undeserving of more expensive options and of wasting taxpayers’ hard-earned cash,” said study author Darren Dahl, senior associate dean of faculty at UBC Sauder. “We discovered a double standard where people are judged differently for making identical choices, depending on where their money comes from.”
In a series of five studies, more than 1,300 participants in the United States were asked to judge people on measures of morality based on their grocery lists (either including organic foods or not) or their chosen rental car (either environmentally friendly or not). When choosing a more expensive ethical product, those on welfare were seen as less moral while more wealthy shoppers were seen as more moral.
The fifth study found that people were also less likely to donate to a charity if the meals it provides are organic.
The paper, “Wealth and Welfare: Divergent Moral Reactions to Ethical Consumer Choices,” co-authored by Jenny Olson, UBC Sauder alumnus Brent McFerran, Andrea Morales and Darren Dahl, the BC Innovation Council Professor at UBC Sauder and director of the Robert H. Lee Graduate School, is forthcoming in the April 2016 issue of the Journal of Consumer Research.Leave a reply

Why does My Hair Trip Salon in Denver have more 5-star online reviews than any other eco-friendly and/or organic salon in Colorado?
Well the #1 thing making My Hair Trip #1 is the way they treat their guests from the owners to the receptionists. While at My Hair Trip Salon in the Denver Art District guests are always greeted with a smile and offered a beverage, purified water, organic coffees and teas, or a cold beer or glass of wine. Friendly conversation mixes in the air with fresh smells of natural health and beauty products as the salon buzzes with positive energy and activity.
Clients are always commenting on how “good it feels” in the shop and the owners say that has always been one of their main focuses. “We want to have a space where, no matter who you are, what’s your style, your personality, no matter what’s going on in your life, you can come here and feel comfortable and be taken care of.” says Paul Zamora, co-owner of My Hair Trip.
My Hair Trip Salon definitely stands out from the crowd of other salons in Denver and indeed in the industry in general, starting from their strict policies on what products they carry and what services they provide there is a genuine sense of family at the shop that is palpable and is a pleasant change of pace from an industry that is typically highly competitive, self-centric, and at times, toxic. My Hair Trip has found a way to work together as a team for common goals as a unit, and it is noticeable in the mood of the shop.
My Hair Trip also uses a personal touch. Our stylists always handle their clients from start to finish. A lot of other salons will have assistants and apprentices wash and style their clients, not at My Hair Trip, our clients are the most important thing and it will always be that way at this revolutionary organic hair salon.
So bottom line is there is a lot going on at My Hair Trip Salon in Denver, Colorado, that is helping them to climb to the top of their industry and it doesn’t look like they’ll be slowing down anytime soon.
You can check them out at 8th and Santa Fe in the Denver Art District.
