Wherever possible, have you reduced the amount of single-use products you use in your salon/clinic?
Maybe you’ve developed a ‘green’ product for professional therapists and their clients to enjoy, such as a plant-based candle with essential oils, or organic skincare range or massage medium?
Perhaps you have embraced the principles of sustainability and zero-waste, applying green solutions to every single aspect of your business...
From reducing, reusing and recycling to switching to green energy providers, sourcing eco-friendly therapy supplies to introducing air-purifying houseplants, we’d love to hear from you.

Last year’s winner for FHT Tutor of the Year was Anne Bramley and Helen Saunders:
Anne and Helen are the co-founders of Wellbeing at Whistlewood, an ‘off grid’ initiative set in 10 acres of community-owned woodland in South Derbyshire. They help to facilitate a team of 29 professionals who offer a wide range of activities and experiences for their guests to enjoy – from holistic therapies and retreats, to wellbeing classes, creative workshops and forest bathing. A key objective of Whistlewood is to help improve health and wellbeing by connecting people with nature and so most of the activities are conducted outdoors, across all four seasons. But there is also a very strong focus on sustainability and giving back to nature, which is why their amenities use solar power, a purified water supply and composting toilets, among others. To learn more about Wellbeing at Whistlewood, look out for an article in the Winter issue of International Therapist, published in January 2021.
