Can staying at a spa be an eco-friendly indulgence?

Pamper The Earth

You would expect anyone who makes a living promoting beauty and well-being to be environmentally conscious. Many spas, however, produce some very unattractive waste in the form of bleached paper, plastic packaging and petroleum-based mineral oil products.

Select spas that follow at least some of these guidelines:

  • Use products containing certified organic ingredients and serve organic meals;
  • Use phosphate-free, biodegradable cleaning products;
  • Protect local people and culture by incorporating indigenous healing traditions (ex. native herbal treatments);
  • Use florescent lights or solar panels rather than incandescent bulbs;
  • Recycle and conserve resources like water;
  • Spa finder online provides a worldwide directory of eco-friendly spas.
