GSN Planet (GSN) has recently unveiled a COVID-19 Sustainability Guide in response to the global pandemic.

The guide is designed to provide inspiration and practical options for businesses and practitioners to evolve during the pandemic to focus on eco-friendly products and services, and additionally offer alternative revenue streams.

Although the spa industry has made moves to become more sustainable in recent years, there are concerns the pandemic and the influx of disposable PPE, linen and uniforms could undo this work.

Written by GSN’s Sustainability Task Force, the guide’s goal is to help those within the spa and wellness industry make well-informed, environmentally- and socially-conscious decisions.

The document is freely available to the entire wellness industry and accessible online here.

Natasha Prybyla, GSN Board member and owner of Sloco Health + Wellness in San Luis Obispo, California, hopes the guide helps inspire businesses and individuals to become conscious consumers.

“Especially during a time when businesses are in survival mode, it’s hard to think about sustainability,” she said.

“We wanted to help provide guidance so decision-makers know what to take into consideration when marking purchases when it comes to the health and wellness of their employees and the earth.

“At GSN Planet, we believe that both personal and planetary wellness go hand in hand.”
