In honor of Earth Day, Spa Ojai at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa will become free of single-use plastic items. 

In 2016, Spa Ojai guests discarded 24,000 plastic snack cups and 107,120 plastic water cups. Upon realizing this, the spa came up with the initiative to go plastic-free. Spa Ojai will be replacing plastic products with eco-friendly, reusable versions.

"Spa has become a lifestyle for many and the concept of 'wellness' is broadening and touching many elements of our daily lives," said spa director Kate Morrison. "As spa professionals, our guests look to us to help guide their wellness journey, through fitness, diet, skincare, body work and beyond. I hope our plastic-free initiative inspires our guests to make change in their own lives, and that our industry partners also embrace this movement as we broaden the spa journey to include wellness for the planet."

Spa Ojai, an award-winning 30,000 ft2 spa in Ojai, California, offers a range of mind and body classes and spa treatments. Among some of their popular treatments include sound energy therapy, orange blossom and honey body wraps and massages for expecting mothers.
