Earth Day & MB Goals

Happy Earth Day!

Today, on Earth Day at MB Massage Studio I celebrate the business choices I’ve made that support the health of our planet and make goals to improve in a few areas.

Things we do well

  • Using massage oils from Badger Balm. They are organic, fair trade and support the local economy!
  • I’m currently putting an order in to have a local seamstress make new facecradle covers for me utilizing and reclying my older, less pretty linens.  Saving them from the landfill and utilizing local talent versus ordering from a massage catalog where the products would be likely made in China.
  • Volunteering time on the steering committee of Monadnock Buy Local.  Working together to improve the local living economy.  
  • Moving more of my own personal and business shopping to local sources like The Keene Farmer’s Market, The Monadnock Food Co-op and The Westmoreland Village Eatery to support these businesses who support other locally owned producers.


Goals to work on this year

  • It is my goal to find a better way to hydrate my clients after their massage.  Unfriendly tap water, a small sink and a small budget lead me to my current wasteful practice of giving clients bottled water.  I’d like to find a greener, affordable and convinient option.
  • Locally sourcing more of the products I use and distribute — one example: tea light candles.  I use a fair number of these and would like to find an affordable, local option.



I hope today you celebrate your own good choices and perhaps make a few Earth Day goals, yourself!
