Once, the staff chose to visit an art studio to paint a picture of a woman carrying water. We painted it in pieces, like a puzzle, which come together to form the complete image. Then, to raise money, people made donations to have their names put in the space around the frame. The piece (shown at right) hangs in our spa. How much money has Folawn's raised over the years? Our average annual Earth Month donation is about $1,500, so since 2001 we've raised over $22,000. We're really proud of that. What will some of Folawn's earth-conscious initiatives look like in the future? We're moving into a larger space next month, and I'm really excited about being more environmentally aware and stepping up our recycling eff orts once we're in our new location. Currently, we take cardboard, paper and glass to the recycling center and donate unwanted magazines to the local high school, so the kids can use them in their art program. In the new facility, we're going to try to go paperless. Obviously, we'll have to print sometimes, but we're all going to be working on our iPads as much as we possibly can! Next year hopefully we'll be able to put together a '70s Rewind It event that we've had in the works for a while. It's a 1970s-themed charity skate party that we want to hold at a local roller rink as part of our Earth Month initiatives. The '70s were the heyday of free- fl owing hair, so I thought it would be a lot of fun. Because of the move the project has been on hold, but we'll see what happens in 2018! u COURTESY THE DAY SPA @ FOLAWN'S
