Green Spa Network Rolls Out New Vital People Membership

Green Spa Network (GSN), a nonprofit trade association supporting sustainability in the spa and wellness industry, recently announced its newest membership category, Vital People, dedicated to individual wellness practitioners, students, and consumers who want to grow their connection between self-care and earth-care.
 
“Our goal is to promote sustainable self-care practices and bring that education to the front lines of the spa industry. Learning to care for self without impacting the planet is critical, and making the time to do so needs to be a priority for personal health and longevity,” says Joanna Roche, Executive Director of the Green Spa Network.
 
Vital People Membership was created to better serve GSN’s rapidly growing and diverse wellness community. At just $39/year, Vital People brings value to wellness individuals who are not a part of an organization, but want to join GSN to learn how to improve their own self-care, foster their relationship with the planet, and live sustainably. For wellness practitioners, GSN will also be holding a Self-Care Summit in 2019, the first of its kind, with details to be released later this fall. 

Individuals of the Vital People Membership will receive multiple benefits, including:

  • A member listing, as well as access to the full GSN member directory
  • Access to educational webinars
  • Access to green industry trends, news, and reports
  • Access to job board
  • A quarterly self-care enewsletter with tips on sustainable living
  • Self-care “check-ins” via email and text
  • Access to the Vital Connections enewsletter, and more

To join GSN as a Vital People Member or to learn about other membership options, please visit GreenSpaNetwork.org/become-a-member.
