Nusta Spa

Sophisticated design melds with high standards of sustainability at downtown D.C.'s Nusta Spa, which, like their friends at TH, believes that "being green does not mean doing without." At Nusta Spa, the architects and aestheticians alike believe in using non-toxic, rapidly renewable, and recycled materials manufactured in an environmentally friendly way. Not only is the 5,000-square-foot space itself constructed with an eye for the green building, but the products used are eco-sensitive, and even printed materials use eco-friendly ink. The result? What they refer to as "high-performance green design" and a healthier environment for work and relaxation.

Nusta Spa is, impressively, the first spa to be accepted into the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Pilot Program for Commercial Interiors. Cheers to that. Thanks for the tip, Michele W! ::Nusta Spa [by MO]
