8 @dayspamagazine • April 2019 CONFESSION TIME: I only started recycling consistently last year. But let me explain! Until recently, our recycling bin consisted of one small, single-home sized container for the entire apartment complex. Hence, it was always full; anything I tried to add would invariably end up as street litter, so I had to opt for the trash on many occasions. Luckily, the building fi nally got a commercial dumpster exclusively for recycling, so I'm back on track—breaking down cardboard boxes and consolidating plastic bags just in time for Earth Month! And it's with Earth Month in mind that we put together this issue, which is full of eco-friendly tips like reducing waste, recycling packaging and sustainably sourcing natural ingredients, all of which have taken over the beauty industry with no signs of stopping. (Even stores like CVS and Target are moving toward cleaner beauty options thanks to a near constant boost in sales.) From the botanical-focused Must Have (page 12) and our Spotlight on sustainable spa practices (page 22), to a primer on natural and organic beauty ("Natural Selection" on page 48), our April stories are sure to help you fi nd a way to set some green initiatives in motion. As you contemplate potential avenues and plans of action, head over to Management Workshop on page 38 for tips on cleaning and de-cluttering your spa. Then, check out Marketing Savvy on page 42 to learn how you can fi nd and partner with social media infl uencers who'll promote your business—and you'll be all set. From all of us at Team DAYSPA, we wish you a happy Earth Month and good luck going green!
