Earth Day 2012 is Sunday, April 22nd. It reminds us that, regardless of the plight of the world’s economies, the enormous issues of climate change, pollution, deforestation and sustainability have not yet been resolved. In fact, they are more pressing than ever. Whilst it is true that change starts with small steps at home, for example, recycling or using less water and electricity; buying green cleaning products, clothing & cosmetics— we also need to send a message out to law makers that time is running out to take decisive action to prevent a global ecological disaster: the Earth won’t wait.

How is Bloom Organics a Green Spa?
Bloom Organics, day spa & boutique, is a proud member of the Green Spa Network. It’s also a Dr.Hauschka Certified Treatment Center and is excited and honored to announce that it is now Sarasota’s first certified Éminence Green Spa!
The Green Spa Network & the Éminence Green Spa program share the same goal: to promote eco-friendly products, services and business practices throughout the spa industry.
According to Yasmin Farrell, owner of Bloom Organics, joining the Green Spa Network was an easy decision to make. ‘We already see ourselves as a ‘green’ business, but I think it’s important to formalize that and to communicate exactly what it means. For example, many of our guests may not realize that the walls in the spa are painted with VOC free paint or that we use biodegradable sheets, organic cotton towels and bamboo spa wraps. Our laundry appliances are energy and water efficient and, of course, we recycle all products bottles, containers and packaging.’
‘Similarly, the products that we offer in our boutique are all organic and/or biodynamic and we take great care in selecting new products. They must be chemical free, pure and ethically sourced. The aims and philosophies of organizations such as the Green Spa Network, Dr.Hauschka & Éminence Organic Skin Care are so clearly aligned with ours, it makes perfect sense.’ Yasmin adds, ’I think people realize that ‘green’ business is not only good for the environment, but it’s also good business and we want to do our part.’
As an Éminence Green Spa, Bloom Organics is committed to green and sustainable business practices such as:
- the conservation of water and energy resources
- responsible waste management and recycling practices
- supporting socially and environmentally responsible suppliers
- promoting the use of natural & organic personal care products
