Many companies today are focused on providing products that are safe and friendly to the environment. While some may celebrate these initiatives on Earth Day, many International SPA Association (ISPA) members are celebrating it year-round through their product offerings.
"The spa industry in general has a very sustainable focus already. Many ISPA members are growing their green product offerings as consumers demand more environmentally friendly products," said Lynne McNees, president of the International SPA Association.
