Our Eco-Friendly Production Facility in North Vancouver

At Parissa Wax, we believe in the power of beauty products that not only make you look and feel good but also make the world a better place. That's why we've made a steadfast commitment to environmental excellence. Nestled in the breathtaking region of North Vancouver, Canada, our production facility stands as a testament to our dedication to eco-friendly practices and sustainability.

Our Commitment to Environmental Excellence

Our production facility in North Vancouver, BC, isn't just a place where we create our renowned hair removal products; it's a manifestation of our environmental consciousness. We understand the profound importance of preserving the natural wonders that surround our facility, from the serene bird sanctuary to the meandering creeks, estuaries, and the vast ocean. This awareness drives every decision we make, from the initial design of the facility to its day-to-day operations.

Recognitions and Awards That Inspire Us

Our unwavering commitment to sustainability hasn't gone unnoticed. We're proud to have received accolades that recognize our eco-friendly initiatives. These include the "Design Excellence Award" from the District of North Vancouver, the prestigious "Best New Industrial Building" honor, and the coveted "Green Building & Energy Efficient" award bestowed upon us by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. These awards serve as a testament to our dedication to environmentally responsible practices.

Environmental Features of Our Facility

Our production facility is a showcase of environmental features that highlight our pledge to preserving the natural beauty of North Vancouver:

Site Landscaping

Parissa laboratories Landscaping

Our landscaping promotes biodiversity and water conservation by incorporating drought-tolerant native plants, with a total of 4,777 such plants thoughtfully chosen.

Reduced Site Disturbance

We carefully selected our building location to safeguard an 80-year-old grove of trees, minimizing any disruption to the natural environment.

Alternative Fuel Vehicle Recharging Station

We actively encourage eco-friendly transportation by providing two preferential parking spaces equipped with electric vehicle charging stations.

Light Pollution Reduction

Parissa Laboratories Lobby

Our facility uses lighting that minimizes light pollution, ensuring that there's no glare or direct lighting affecting the night sky.

Storm Water Management

We've implemented a comprehensive stormwater treatment system that removes contaminants, significantly reducing phosphorus by 40% and average annual post-development total suspended solids by a remarkable 80%.

Water Conservation

We've gone the extra mile by using recirculated water from our production process to flush toilets. This reduces water consumption by a substantial 40% compared to a regular building, while also reusing over 14,600 liters of water annually.

Construction Recycling

During the construction phase, we diligently collected and diverted land clearing debris, recyclables, and reusable materials from landfills, achieving an impressive 79.2% waste diversion rate.

Reduced Heat Island Effect

Our facility employs highly reflective roofing materials to minimize the heat impact on the microclimate and the habitats of local wildlife.

Daylight & Views

We understand the importance of well-being, which is why we've designed our workspace to ensure that 75% of it receives natural daylight, with 90% of these spaces offering access to exterior views.

Controllability of Systems

Our building features operable windows and lighting controls, carefully designed to enhance the comfort and well-being of our occupants.

Low-Emitting Materials

We've taken the health and well-being of our occupants into consideration by selecting adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, and carpets that meet or exceed VOC content limits.

Comprehensive Recycling

Our commitment to recycling extends throughout our facility and offices. We collect all recyclables, from paper and containers to soft plastics, glass, and organics. Our goal? Working towards a zero-waste facility. This program alone saves 43.9 tonnes of carbon annually, along with conserving 351,800 liters of water and preserving 226 trees.

At Parissa Wax, our production facility in North Vancouver serves as a beacon of how businesses can prioritize environmental sustainability without compromising on quality. In a world where conscious consumerism is gaining momentum, we're proud to lead the way, demonstrating that beauty and environmental responsibility can indeed go hand in hand. We invite you to join us on this journey towards a greener, more beautiful future.
