In gratitude for the wonderful gift of warm water and for all that the Earth gives us, Glen Ivy strives to be as environmentally conscious as possible. To spearhead our green efforts is a volunteer group of employees that are passionate about preserving the Earth known as Sustaining Earth’s Environment Daily, or as we affectionately refer to them: S.E.E.D.
As an outdoor spa facility we rely on the environment daily and with the current drought conditions it is more important than ever to use our resources wisely. Here at Glen Ivy we are fortunate to have a committee enthusiastically devoted to these very things.
This Spring the SEED team will been busy managing recycling across the property, planning workshops for employees and volunteering for clean ups and hikes. They’ve also provided easy-to-follow recipes for Homemade Natural Weed Killer and Homemade Bug Spray using essential oils and items found around your home.
To date, S.E.E.D. has made some great changes and accomplishments at Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa. Here are a few:
Another “seed” worth noting is that Glen Ivy is a Founding Seed Spa in the Green Spa Network (www.greenspanetwork.org) committed to promoting sustainable best practices in the spa industry.
