SUSTAINABILITY, FOR NOW AND FOR NEXT
WeCOSMOPROF International is the digital event not to be missed besides the scheduled physical events in 2021, whether you are looking for new business partners or you just wish to remain updated on the beauty market news.
Today more than ever there is an expectation that we must radically reduce our impact on the natural world. And, where possible, create positive impact for people and the planet.
Sustainability sits at the heart of our beauty industry and it must be at the core of everyone’s strategy. This session will focus on the sustainability challenges we are facing today, as well as those that will impact on future generations.

Written for the Sustainable Spa Association by Stephanie Hodgson from MeetthefiveRs
Spas around the world are invited to take part in our campaign
to find a creative solution for one of their waste streams.
Businesses of all kinds generate mountains of rubbish.
Spas exist to pamper and rejuvenate bodies and minds but our services should not be at the expense of the environment and the rest of the people on the planet. Our industry could be doing more to minimise what we are sending to landfill.
We believe in the principles of a circular economy and at its core is the idea that nothing goes to waste. We have a vision for the spa industry where all our goods, materials, products and packaging remain in a closed loop so that we no longer take more than we need from our natural world and then dump what we no longer want into corners of the world that we pretend don’t exist.
One person’s waste is another’s treasure.
Let’s put that old adage into practice! We can find all kinds of ways for the output of our spas to become ‘food’ for other processes. We could even be supplying valuable material (ie our waste) to other local businesses at little to no cost to both. This could mean strengthening local economies whilst relieving the pressure that our businesses place on economic and natural systems.
Through our #SpaWasteNotChallenge, we hope to see:
Creativity and ingenuity
Team-building within spas
Competitive spirit between spas around the world
A more unified industry through a common goal
Collaboration between our industry and other
Collective impact from a singular campaign
