Four Southern Oregon spas are examined in a new book called "Green Spas and Salons," which focuses on ways spas, salons and businesses in the hospitality industry can develop sustainable business practices.
The book examines nearly 30 spas from around the country that utilize green ideas, including Be Cherished Salon and Day Spa and Waterstone Spa, both in Ashland, Spa at Club Northwest in Grants Pass and The New Well, in Grants Pass and Medford.
The book was written by Ashland resident Shelley Lotz, who has been an entrepreneur in the Rogue Valley for more than 25 years as an esthetician, educator and business owner, and she is a certified sustainable building advisor.
