In an effort to pamper and nurture adolescent girls with facial disfigurements, CA Botana donated spa products from its Doctor D. Schwab and Ambrosia Aromatherapy lines to the Angel Faces Retreat held at The Glen Ivy Center in Corona, CA. Angel Faces is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide healing retreats and ongoing support to inspire adolescent girls with severe facial disfigurements to achieve their optimum potential. The organization hosts the week-long Angel Faces Retreat each year to pamper these adolescent girls in a serene spa environment with massages, facials, workshops, and activities.
When it comes to going green, every little contribution helps. That’s why the Eco-Dentistry Association (EDA), an international association of dental professionals who encourage eco-friendly practices, is kicking off its National “Save 90-A-Day!” Campaign to celebrate Healthcare Environmental Awareness Week (Sept. 13-19). Starting Monday, provide your spa clients with the following regimen for conserving water when they brush their teeth (and practice them yourself), and save up to 90 glasses of water per day.
- Wet your toothbrush under the water
- Turn off the tap
- Apply toothpaste
- Brush your teeth for 2 minutes
- Fill a small glass with water
- Rinse and swish with water from the glass.
Additionally, each day during this week-long health observance, the EDA is asking consumers to tell a friend or family member to do the same. Just tell seven other people by the end of the week, and together you can save 720 glasses of water. That’s 90 gallons of water saved for each person who tells seven friends—imagine the impact your entire client list could have.
