Think you can’t make a difference? Think again. Recently I emailed a favorite local day spa. My concern was their imported bottled water. The bottled water was in glass bottles and because of their weight have a hefty carbon footprint crossing the ocean. I suggested they use a glass cooler to hold water and even add flavors. I also suggested using glasses instead of disposable ones. Both these ideas are money savers and give a feeling of quality. Well, I went to the spa this last week and they had the glass water cooler, real glasses and this summer will use local, organic produce to flavor the water. So, next time you see where a company could go greener, go ahead and write to them. You could not only help them be more sustainable, but you could save them money as well.
