Being Green

WoodSprite was born from a passion to make the finest, purest, most complete organic spa and body care products available, while being a leader in a newer, more sustainable business model. For us, being “green” isn’t just an idea, it’s a lifestyle, and for more than 16 years, it’s always been at the very heart of everything we do. Just some of the steps we take on a daily basis…

  • All of our cleaning is accomplished with eco-friendly, biodegradable natural soap, vinegar and baking soda.
  • We have invested in carbon offsets which divert non-renewable energy into wind and solar power.
