"Complexions was the fi rst LEED-certifi ed spa in the countr y to reach the Gold Level for new construction, thanks to the way we recycled our waste and the eco-friendly materials we chose, including water-saving plumbing fi xtures; LED lighting; cork and recycled tires for fl ooring; energy star-rated equipment; non-VOC paints; and even drought resistant landscaping. We also look for ECO-certifi ed, organic, clean and recycled materials in all the products we carr y. We want ever ything to be good for our guests and for the earth, from treatment products to the environment we work in." —Denise Dubois, owner, Complexions Spa for Beauty and Wellness in Saratoga Springs and Albany, New York "Located inside Colorado's Silver LEED-certifi ed Westin River front, Spa Anjali has been dedicated to sustainable operations since we opened more than 10 years ago. Our popular 'Green Check In' gives resort guests $10 off for coming to their spa appointment in the robe provided in their hotel room; we have an extensive recycling program; and we employ only natural cleaning methods. The spa also uses organic, natural treatment products—and sources locally whenever possible. We carefully select companies that align with our sustainable goals, and guests have really embraced our eco-friendly brands, from Dazzle Dr y nail polish to skin care from Laurel Whole Plant Organics and Éminence, the latter of which has planted more than 5,900 trees on behalf of our spa." —Ingrid Middaugh, spa director, Spa Anjali at The Westin Riverfront in Avon, Colorado "PURE Spa carries organic product lines packaged in earth- friendly, recyclable or natural materials. Even our retail space offers merchandise with this concept in mind, featuring sandals made of eco-friendly material, tote bags made from natural fi bers, and jewelr y derived from agate and druzy stones. We also sell multifunctional coconut oil candles—after burning, the wax can be used as a moisturizer and the jars can eventually function as drink tumblers. Finally, we only use glassware throughout the facility to help eliminate unnecessar y waste." —Jackie Martinez, director of spa & retail, PURE Spa at Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida April 2019 • 23
