As business owners, spa owners and managers have a deep responsibility to not only be aware of what they are purchasing, but also the responsibility of ensuring they are operating their businesses to the best of their abilities—and that includes being responsible to the environment.

With the boundless green options available today, if you are not already on board or ready to get on board with the green movement, you will likely soon find yourself and your business left behind.

Environmental issues have not only parked themselves on the front doorsteps of homes and offices but have taken on an ever-growing global impact, as well. If you have not made it part of your business resolutions this year, take the time now to look at ways in which you can make changes that will positively affect or enhance the environment. From buying and selling environmentally friendly products to creating a recycling center or installing electric hand dryers, your ability to make a change, however large or small, is there. It is time to commit to making these changes every year.
