Green spa treatments at Anjou Spa and Salon in Bend, Oregon

Here in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest, living green is practically second nature.  So when people come to visit Central Oregon, its not surprising that many of the travel amenities and vacation activities are eco-friendly.

If you’re traveling to my neck of the woods, you’re probably getting out for some skiing, bicycle riding or hiking.  What better way to relax after a day of recreation than at the best green spa in Bend, Oregon?

But what exactly is a green spa, anyway?  Visit Anjou Spa and Salon in downtown Bend, and you’ll find out.

Women and men can enjoy a variety of spa treatments using all-natural organic products and therapies.  Relax in bamboo fiber robes and sip organic tea while you wait for your appointment.

The built environment at Anjou is also eco-friendly.  As described on its website:

Many industries have realized in recent years that ‘going green’ isn’t just the right thing to do; it can be cost effective as well. Anjou Spa & Salon reduces water use by using Energy Star-rated appliances, tank-less water heaters and water-saving fixtures. We also save energy by using “smart” appliances (moisture-sensor dryers), energy-efficient light bulbs and fixtures and cotton insulation in the walls.

Anjou Spa & Salon is committed to being sustainable. During construction, existing trim, doors and walls were re-used and demolished materials were recycled when possible. Our wood flooring is made from sustainably harvested bamboo and the walls/ceilings were painted with low VOC-emitting interior paint.

Pedicures at Anjou Spa and Salon go green

Anjou Spa and Salon uses toxin-free, biodegradable laundry and other cleaning products.  Talk about a breath of fresh air!  The salon also minimizes waste at all levels of operation – from working with suppliers to minimize packaging, to recycling every item that can be put to re-use.  Recycled paper and soy ink are used for printing out brochures and more.

But enough talk about the green features of this spa and salon!  You want to get in to be pampered, right?

You’ll find all the traditional spa treatments at Anjou, including massage, facials, manicures/pedicures, and body treatments.  Relax in the steam room or take a Vichy shower as part of your appointment.

Your friends will be green with envy!
