I just returned from the 4th Annual Green Spa Network Fall Congress at Sundance Resort. It was wonderful to spend time with such passionate and inspirational spa and sustainability professionals. Universal Companies was a sponsor of the event and has supported the organization from the beginning.
One of the many fascinating people I met was author and educator Shelley Lotz, who was at the Congress to perform research for her new book Green Spas and Salons: How to Make Your Business Truly Sustainable. Published by Universal Companies’ long-term partner Milady, the book fills Shelley’s life-long passion for sustainability within the spa industry. In her words, “There is an exciting opportunity to make a difference in the way the beauty industry does business.”
Shelley understands first-hand the challenges of operating a green spa. She is a co-author of Milady’s Standard Esthetics: Fundamentals and the former owner of an esthetics institute. She is looking for owners and managers of spas and salons to share their stories on sustainability and green business practices.
I encourage you to share your words of wisdom on making your business more green and sustainable. Please submit a few inspiring sentences, your name, company, and contact information in the comment field for possible inclusion in the book. “Words of wisdom” statements from contributors will be included throughout the book as space allows. The deadline for submissions is October 30th.
