Eco vs. Carbon-Neutral Spas

As more and more spas go green, these terms are used with increasing frequency. But what does it really mean to be ecofriendly or carbon-neutral?

Many spas these days make the claim of being one or the other, and the definitions are never clear. Indeed, no standard certification process exists. “Ecofriendly” simply means spas have adopted sustainable practices: recycling programs, local organic products, cleaner energy sources. Carbon-neutral spas go a step further, employing new technologies to reduce and counteract their greenhouse emissions to reach net-zero output.
