Message from NAEFSS Founder, Tamara Jercha:
My role is to help all salon and spa professionals serving the public as well as serving each other through business to business relationships to operate in a sustainable, eco-friendly fashion. Through membership, affiliations and consulting projects my passion is to support those who support sustainability’s three E’s; Economics, Environment, and Social Equity.

We live in a world full of great diversity. What one person or group of people value, may not be of value to another. What we all have in common is our desire to do better, and become better stewards of the environment. Ours is not an all or nothing association. Ours is an association created to help each Salon & Spa be their personal best.
The National Association of Eco-Friendly Salons & Spas™, is organized to build a community of like-minded business owners, mindful of their impact on the environment and dedicated to learning how to implement green business strategies while sharing success stories with others.
Most Salon & Spa Professionals care about the environment, but their passion is in the creative process of perfecting their craft, conducting their business in an eco-friendly manor becomes something which rests on their “to do” list. When there are too many choices or paths to take, a person gets a sense of information overload and becomes paralyzed. They do nothing because they don’t know where to start. NAEFSS started by creating a standardized sustainability model.
The Salon & Spa Sustainability Model, created by founder Tamara Jercha, MBA Sustainable Business, is the foundation supporting all guides, services and certifications offered by the National Association of Eco-Friendly Salons & Spas. Each area of concentration is created to encompass all aspects of owning and operating a salon/spa using green business practices. Sustainability Certifications are awarded as a result of points earned from each area of concentration.
