Being an Eco Spa – Its not what we do Its who we are!

Our Ethos is truly ecological. In a positive, kind way, “We support and nurture everything within our sphere of influence, including our selves, our family, our environment, community, industry.”
How we do that, is by setting an example, with love, we empower and educate.

At The Day Spa, we are a holistic haven has been created with love for the earth and others, by using recycled, reclaimed, pre loved , and seconds where possible, whilst still adhering to council regulations & the skin penetration act.

From the beautiful old reclaimed doors that welcome you in to our spa, to our reception desk that evolved from an old bedhead, broken doors and balustrade, our use of preloved & seconds furnishings, the up-cycled cabinetry salvaged from a knockdown, to using Nanas old glassware and linens ; we have worked around the existing structure , designing and fitting out our spa whilst being as respectful and Environmental as possible.

Every aspect of our Spa takes in consideration being environmentally conscious. From the design, like minded suppliers we deal with , the Organic products we use in Spa, to bio degradable , recyclable packaging and gift cards , to energy efficient appliances, energy usage, water usage , organic cleaning products we use, to the way we recycle and down our everyday practises , it is all done with an awareness of the impact that we make on this earth and in our world.

We also care deeply about our own and our guest’s health & wellbeing. This is reflected in the products we use in treatments and the environment we have created .

We are an exceptional Eco Spa by the way we have established sustainable practices that go beyond plastic recycling, paper reduction and the use of nontoxic products. We are truly holistic in our all of our practises and have created an Eco Spa with soul. We believe that being eco is not only about being environmentally friendly and green but it is about supporting our Eco System and community.

Our eco efforts can be validated by the fact The Day Spa is a 2020 Top 5 World finalist for Sustainable Spa 2020, as well as our founder Samantha being named the 2019 Australian Roar award winner for Environmental warrior.

Green Policy

Our Green policy is all about being mindful of our impact on the environment and that we each have a responsibility personally to ensure that we have a minimal negative environmental impact on this earth and the community.

We acknowledge that often the word “sustainable” and the fact that when things can be recycled it, may give perceived permission that leads to overuse and not choose wisely; It all begins with our choices.

If it can be refused, we will refuse, if it can be recycled – it will be recycled! If it can be reused , it will be reused! If we can reduce the impact, we will Reduce, if it can rot, we will choose products that will rot into the soil!
