CEO and Chief Green Officer: Katerina Bisbikis

A day of pampering could produce a lot of waste: Think about all those cotton balls, tissues, swabs and disposable applicators that are used in a day. There’s also the waste that goes along with running a business – old memos, used forms and to-do lists. And then there’s all that use of energy – except if you’re talking about operations at Nova Vita Salon & Spa. Owner Katerina Bisbikis has her own R-mantra: Relax, renew, rejuvenate and recycle. Her staff recycles all used bottles, cans and paper, and uses recycled treatment supplies made of sustainable materials such as cotton. All post-its, printer paper and notepads are made of recycled material and, once used, are recycled again. But the team tries to keep even that in check. In fact, the staff has cut paper communications by 50 percent since the completion of the spa’s Green & Gorgeous makeover in January. As for energy use: You’ll find only energy-saving light bulbs at Nova Vita.
