April 22 marks the 43rd anniversary of Earth Day. However, most of us understand that achieving true sustainability goes well beyond honoring the environment on a given day—rather, it’s about practicing a commitment to green practices on a daily basis. That’s why an increasing number of spas nationwide are embracing the green way of doing business. And, they seek suppliers and manufacturers that share their philosophies.

They’ve looked beyond the basics, such as opting for more natural or organic product ingredients and, like so many day spas, are utilizing eco-friendly alternatives within their own operations. Here, several environmentally responsible companies share their ideas about social responsibility, and discuss the large and small measures taken at their product source points, manufacturing plants and offices—to maintain a small footprint. —By Melinda Taschetta-Millane
