Green Spa Network
In the United States, the spa industry is comprised of nearly 14,000 facilities generating 9.7 billion in annual revenues. Spas are a leading leisure industry and naturally suited to be at the forefront of the green movement.
This industry typically utilizes environmental resources for a wide array of water-based treatments, laundry services and disposable items used in spa services making it a major consumer of water, energy, and natural resources. Adopting green practices not only reduces environmental impact, but also raises environmental awareness among spa clientèle and contributes to the financial performance.
Green Spa Network (GSN)is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit, trade association. The goals of GSN are:
- To bring sustainable operating practices to the spa industry.
- To facilitate education, research and alliances in sustainable business practices.
- To promote the natural connections between personal wellbeing, economic sustainability, and health of our planet.
