Massage Sci is operated out of my home office, reducing the need for daily travel and redundant utility usage.
When possible, I source products in bulk from companies that utilize waste-reducing product packaging and/or shipping packaging.
I prioritize suppliers that do not use artificial fragrances, dyes, fillers, or materials; do use ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients; and contribute philanthropically.
reuse & recycle
I avoid one-time use plastics and disposable items and prioritize the use of reusable products (preferably made from recycled or sustainable materials) - unless otherwise required by state, CDC, or OSHA guidelines.
I participate in the local recycling program and maintain a personal compost pile that's reused in my organic garden.
Any items that came in contact with bodily fluids (like facial tissues) or cannot be recycled/composted are disposed of in a BPI certified biodegradable bag.
my fav suppliers
BIOBAG: BPI-Certified biodegradable bags are used in all trash cans.
BON VITAL: Wisconsin-based company focused on quality paraben free massage lotions, gels, and creams.
DROPPS: To clean all used linens, use their unscented laundry detergent that has no fillers or dyes (referral code).
DR. BRONNER'S: A long-time leader in organic and fair trade soaps. I use their non-scented hand soap before and after every massage session.
SIMPLY EARTH: 100% pure and ethically sourced essential oils company that donates 13% of profits to help end human trafficking. I offer several oils during massage sessions and am an approved wholesaler.
WHO GIVES A CRAP: Bulk, plastic-free toilet paper and paper towels. 50% of profits go to help build toilets. I use both product lines in the client restroom.
