Sloco’s Eco-Features

Some spas spend absurd amounts of money on fancy tile, lavish interior design and environmentally unfriendly features. At Sloco, we decided to take things another direction… We are using the interior of our spa to educate our clients on the importance of keeping the environment in mind, not only for the future of our planet, but also for our health!

Cork Flooring

Cork flooring is great for dampening sound and reduces impact on the joints, providing extra comfort for you and our massage therapists, so that they can serve you better. It is even hypo-allergenic and comes from a renewable resource, so it is not only great for your immune system, but also respects the environment.

We support local business. Thanks Green Goods!

Laundry

At Sloco, we do our own laundry to ensure linens are cleaned without harsh chemicals that pollute the environment.

We also have an efficient front loading washer and use microfiber sheets which require less water than standard linens.

Zero VOC Paint

According to the EPA, paint is considered one of the top five hazards to human health. Don’t hesitate to take a deep breath in here, though… Our walls are covered with zero V.O.C. paint, helping keep the air you breathe clean and promote environmental wellness.

Air Quality

We use a special air purification system to kills viruses and bacteria. 

LED Lighting

Did you know that on average, up to 40% of a building’s electricity use is accounted for by lighting? That’s why we chose ENERGY STAR Certified light fixtures, fitted with low wattage LED light bulbs. It’s just another way we’re trying to shed some light on how easy it is to save resources and promote environmental wellness.

Waste Conscious

It is our goal to become a zero waste spa! While there is still a lot of work to do, we make the effort to divert waste from the landfill whenever possible through proper recycling or upcycling!

Water Smart

Did you know that 30% of the average household’s water bill is accounted for by toilet flushes? The reuse of this soapy water to refill the bowl helps in saving gallons of water each day. We use a retrofitted sink basin in the bathroom which breaks the chain of germ transmission and reduces illness by delivering a touch-free hand wash with every flush.

Squeaky Clean

No harsh chemicals or toxic disinfectants used here!
