Free Associate Membership brings sustainability resources to all, while Contributing Membership lets green spa leaders shine.
In honor of Earth Day, the Green Spa Network (GSN) recently unveiled a new membership structure designed to make joining the network easier and expand the non-profit organization’s impact. The new Associate Member and Contributing Member levels will provide an improved foundation for the ongoing development of focused spa sustainability resources for the spa industry.
Beginning on Earth Day, anyone interested in learning more about or taking action for sustainability will be able to join the movement as a GSN Associate Member for FREE at www.greenspanetwork.org. “There are so many people opening to sustainable opportunities beyond basic eco-greening, the GSN board of directors wanted to be able to provide our tools to anyone who can benefit from them without the barrier of dues,” says Green Spa Network Executive Director Paul Schmidt. “Our new memberships now make it even easier for spas and supplier partners all over the world to collaborate for a sustainable future.”
The Associate Membership is to support people who know there is a bright future ahead if we all work together through networking, education and being in action. Associate Members will stay in the know regarding sustainability and spas through GSN’s news and informational messages and have full access to GSN’s Sustainability Assessment Tool and Greening Toolkit, as well as a wide range of fulfilling volunteer opportunities.
Spa leaders who share GSN’s passion for being in action and wish to support the spa sustainability movement can join as a Contributing Member. Contributing Members can have their spa listed on GSN’s Green Spa Locator Map and enjoy other exclusive benefits such as supplier discounts and offers, media and marketing opportunities, member decal and wall certificates, preferred rates for GSN events, and more. GSN Contributing Members believe that spas can lead the way in promoting sustainable business and lifestyles and strive to “walk the talk” through ongoing improvement at their own properties. One year of Contributing Membership is just $360 USD.
“It’s exciting to expand our reach because our work is so important in shaping the future of our industry and conducting business that is both socially and environmentally responsible,” says Tara Grodjesk, GSN Founder, Board Member and Chair of the Congress and Personal Care Committees.
