GSN + Spa Buzz Partner on the Tree Planting Initiative

GSN Planet (GSN) is thrilled to announce a partnership with The Spa Buzz beginning this year! As we continue to expand our sustainable footprint in a new decade of possibility, GSN is working to bring together the best partners and increase awareness of the imperative need to plant trees.

Offering inspired gatherings for wellness professionals, The Spa Buzz connects leaders and visionaries to strengthen the wellness community. Spa Buzz was founded by Kristi Konieczny in 2003 with the intention of nurturing relationships and allowing event attendees to expand their network with prestigious leaders and partners within the spa industry.

​GSN board members will act as sustainability liaison’s while participating and promoting the GSN Tree Planting Initiative during Spa Buzz events. The first event of the year was held on January 13-14, 2020, at the Vintner’s Inn in Santa Rosa, CA. GSN Board Vice President & Finance Chair, and General Manager, Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary, Thor Holm, represented GSN at the Vintner Inn’s Environmentalist Level property. GSN is looking forward to the opportunity to strengthen personal connections with industry leaders in an intimate environment.

The Inaugural Action Initiative is premised on the critical and urgent need to regenerate the earth using trees’ natural abilities to reverse climate change. The GSN Tree Planting Initiative is an effort to mobilize the spa and wellness industry to plant 1 million trees! By signing up for GSN’s Tree Planting Initiative it allows the community to track its overall progress toward their one million-tree goal, rally around a common cause, and send a clear message that the spa and wellness industry cares to be a recognized champion of environmentalism. Existing and new members of the GSN community are encouraged to pledge to contribute to this effort.

GSN Planet believes we are much more powerful and impactful if we unify across the industry and work together towards a greater good. GSN asks that as you participate in this initiative throughout the year. Be sure to use #GSNPlantsTrees so we can track your progress and share your stories!
