GSN Remains Committed to Our Vital Planet

The Green Spa Network (GSN) was founded on the mission of connecting our personal wellbeing to the vitality of our planet. Given the growing evidence for the impact our actions have on the environment and the global impact of climate change, GSN’s vision of creating a more sustainable future is more relevant than ever.

We approach sustainability in a broad manner, with the intention to encourage increased awareness and actions in response to the global imperative for earth friendly living. Our goal is to encourage actionable decisions that positively impact people and planet. While our individual efforts may seem small in the larger picture, there cannot be global change without individual action. We are all a part of the collective solution.

GSN is committed to providing its members and the broader spa industry with education, resources, and community gatherings to show what action can be taken to support our vision of a vital planet and vital people.
