In 1972, on the anniversary of the very first Arbor Day, an environmentally minded group of people created the Arbor Day Foundation to pursue the chlorophyll-laden mission of restoring habitats and natural ecosystems in the United States. The organization’s one million members help support conservation programs all over the country and spread awareness about the necessity of protecting our arboreal natural resources. The Tree City USA program replenishes urban forests in more than 3,400 towns and cities, helping produce cleaner air, lower energy costs, and storm-water control. Rain Forest Rescue preserves tropical rainforests and supports native rainforest families to maintain the habitats of more than half the planet’s plant, animal, and wandering conservationist species.
The modern decor and chic furnishings at Lason & Spa exude an urban sophistication, impressing visitors with an exposed loft-style ceiling, contemporary artwork, and Manhattan cityscapes that decorate the walls. Beneath the rafters stand owners Lisa Gunter and Anna Evans-Bayer, who helm a team of savvy stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. Wielding products from brands such as American Crew, Pureology, and Aquage, stylists perform custom haircuts, styling, color services, and hair-removal treatments. Aestheticians rejuvenate faces with custom facials, masks, and peels, and massage therapists perform relaxing Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massages. The spa techs also pamper hands with mani-pedis and use custom airbrush tanning to keep bodies looking bronze.
