Eco Spa Recap #SpaWeekGossip 10/6

7 Oct

Turns out that doing good and looking good go hand in hand at our eco a-go-go #SpaWeekGossip party this week. Whether it’s a massage with oil, a treatment made right in front of our eyes – we went crazy for green spa treats and saving green with Spa Week’s $50 treatments starting Monday!

Top tweeted treatments & spas:

@RedDoorSpas Phyto Organic line of treatments
@looloos USDA Certified Organic Spa Treatments
Masks mixed in front of you like @RedMountainSpa
Seaweed Body Wraps
@CallawayGardens and @RancholaPuerta

@Skin2Skincare products certified organic
SpaWeek Spas listed in green http://ow.ly/2PvzQ

Our suggestions for spas to go greener:

– Recycle gift bags, plastic containers
– Reduce water use by having guests bring their own robes, towels & going naked!
– Using energy efficient lights and equipment
– Connect with guests electronically saving paper
– Unplug appliances not in use (Great for #SpaHome too)

Ecotastic brands included Floriani, Dr. Hauschka, Weleda, Ren, Arcona, Juice Beauty, Janson Beckett & Repechage CranApple Scrub.

OF COURSE we all love making our own natural treats in our #SpaHomes. Raves & resources

AND OUR ACTIONS speak louder than words: Composting, recycling and unplugging at home, are ways we’re making the planet & our pockets greener.

Spas are doing good too. October is breast cancer awareness month and November is diabetes awareness month. Spas all over are going pink and blue to help find a cure for these top killers of women. Gotta love that!

Next week join us for a Spa Date to celebrate Sweetest Day and getting your honey to the spa. For just $100 you BOTH can have a romantic rendez-vous.

Eco Spa: Saving Face while Saving the Planet SpaWeekGossip 10/6

4 Oct

Blue Marble Spa at Mission Bay Hyatt is Eco Friendly!

Think spagoing and beauty are indulgent pastimes of the young and wasteful? Wrong! Spagoers are among the greenest folks I know. After all, we’re being proactive in our health so why wouldn’t we do the same for the earth. Besides, we could be engaged in consumer centric behavior like shopping!

The question is how can we enjoy our spa pleasures and home beauty rituals all while being kind to Mother Nature? And what products are organic and chemical free (and can be gotten without hugging a tree?)

So grab your granola and join us for this week’s #SpaWeekGossip as we talk:

– The ways spas are going lean and green (and where to save green by indulging in $50 treatments during Spa Week)
– How to nurture your nirvana au natural
– Organic lotions and potions that save the planet and our pusses
– Ways to go eco in your #SpaHome
– And a special nod to Breast Cancer Awareness month with spas and beauty companies that are going pink!
