Organic Spa MagazineConsumer Lifestyle Magazine's Inaugural Issue Showcases News, Ideas and Experts In Personal Wellbeing and Environmental Sustainability

Organic Spa Magazine has debuted to serve the growing number of consumers committed to integrating personal wellbeing with an environmentally sustainable lifestyle. Published quarterly in print by Oceans Publishing Company, LTD., Organic Spa Magazine is available year-round through a web-based interactive digital edition. The Winter 2007 digital edition is accessible at www.organicspamagazine.com.

The magazine's rich and varied editorial content leads with a cover story entitled 'Green Spa Retreats', featuring hand-picked vacation destinations in Mexico, Vietnam, Costa Rica and Italy. Another feature, 'Paving the Way', introduces readers to nine highly respected thought leaders who are driving the sustainable spa movement today.

Editorial departments organize content into four areas -- 'at home', 'at work', 'at play', 'at rest' — and cover a range of topics,, including products and processes for personal, home and business use, cuisine, travel, personal improvement, design and lifestyle issues.

'It's very gratifying to be at the forefront of the movement to integrate personal wellbeing with environmental sustainability,' said Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief Mary Bemis. 'It is a critical mission that is very rapidly reaching the mainstream,' she said.

With its dedication to 'spirit, sustainability, soul', Organic Spa Magazine attracted 27 charter advertisers for the premiere issue. Noted Co-Founder and Publisher Bev Maloney-Fischback: 'We topped our initial forecast and we are on a fast track with the second issue.'
