The only day spa in the world with the coveted B Corp Certification resides on the Central Coast of California.

Sloco Massage + Wellness Spa has joined SLO County businesses All Good, Native Trails, Inc. and 10 Over Studio in meeting the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.

“We have always strived to use sustainable practices,” owner and Certified Massage Therapist Natasha Prybyla said. “It just makes sense that what is good for the environment is also good for our health and wellness.”

From renewable energy and water conservation to zero VOC paint, LED light fixtures and sustainable cork flooring, Sloco has strived to reduce the potential impact of self-care.

These goals carry over to the table with stripless, biodegradable wax, Eco Cert skincare products and massage oil free of preservatives and emulsifiers.

By previously joining 1 Percent for the Planet and the California Green Business Network, this local day spa has now doubled down on its commitment to community wellness and preserving the environment.

“Our core values have aligned with the B Lab since we started,” said Prybyla. “So it’s an honor to now officially be associated with all the businesses working as forces for good.”

This certification also requires sustainability in business practices with evaluations on employee compensation, benefits and training, diversity and supplier and community relations.

“The B Economy aims to balance purpose and profit,” says the B Corp website. “B Corporations are businesses that are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, community, and environment. Certified B Corporations have met the highest standards of verified performance and transparency.”
