Green Spa Network Launches "Vital Stories" Podcast

Green Spa Network (GSN), a nonprofit trade association supporting sustainability in the spa and wellness industry, has just launched a new podcast, “Vital Stories,” featuring ideas and stories from environmental leaders and industry experts whose insights can help inspire us to take steps in our lives and businesses to protect our planet and the people on it.
 
“We are thrilled to partner with WNCK Nantucket Public Radio for the production of our new podcast. It’s time to share the stories and experiences that connect sustainable and regenerative work in all areas of our communities. Listen to learn and be inspired,” says Joanna Roche, executive director of the Green Spa Network.
 
Every other week, “Vital Stories” hosts thoughtful conversations that promote the vital connections between personal well-being, responsible business practices, and environmental sustainability.
 
The first episode features Bill Reed, Principal of Regenesis Group, a founding Board Member of the US Green Building Council, and one of the co-founders of the LEED Green Building Rating System. In this episode, Reed discusses why environmental regeneration, in addition to sustainability, is critical for life on earth and to restore the balance between humanity and the ecosystem from which we draw resources.
