Eco-Coach. I love that name! At the end of this week, four members of the Spa Finder staff met with Anca Novacovici (pictured) and Alexandra Marchosky, the proprietors of a company called Eco-Coach. I was introduced to them by Alex von Bidder who is co-owner of the Four Seasons restaurant here in New York. They have been helping Alex make some adjustments in his restaurant to move toward more sustainable practices.
It seemed like a good idea to have some help with doing that in our offices. We formed a “Green Committee” a couple of years ago – that has met somewhat regularly to come up with environmentaly-friendly ideas and energy-saving office practices: recycling, saving electricity, being more conscious of paper usage, etc. Mark Mezrich, our Online Marketing Manager heads it up.
I will keep you posted on our progress. We are now in the first phase which they call an “Eco-Audit.” They will be interviewing various members of our staff and learning about our current practices and costs before making recommendations.
I am used to terms like fitness coach, life coach, and wellness coach…..and will now add eco-coach to my vocabulary.
