How can the guest be sure the spa is an authentic green spa and compare it with its competitors? And how can a spa itself prove that it is concerned about people and planet? This is where standards and criteria come in. They assess all activities a spa claims to follow in order to be categorized as a green spa.

You emailed? Try a letter next time
By Jeffrey Dobkin
Yes, I'm sure I received the email from you, but just refresh me — what was it about? Isn't it the same on your computer? Thousands of pieces of information showing up in electronically-charged ions every day? When do you get free time to read it all? Answer: You don't. So, here's the problem: Computer overload, too much information. Everyone is taking precise aim right at my monitor. Frankly, I'm out of computer screen time. But there's good news, too. You don't have to send everything by email. You can send your prospects, clients and customers a letter.
