How a basement sauna, an infamous San Francisco street hockey league, and a friendly competition inspired the start of Sauna House
We believe that all things should be sustainable for both people and planet, which is why we’re committed to creating healing spaces without hurting mother nature. After all, our bodies and the earth deserve some gratitude – they provide us with everything we have.
Bathhouses use a lot of water and electricity. Here’s how we combat that:
Not one piece of single-use plastic
You’ll only find things made of recycled material or sustainable plastic alternatives here.
All the cool kids are composting these days
Landfills are lame. All cups, lids, tea, and other biowaste are composted monthly.
Unnecessary waste? Never heard of it
We use cotton hand towels and rags, and don’t use electric hand dryers or paper towels.
Clean products with clean ingredients
We use Everyone Soaps (Eo) and Dr. Bronners, with certified organic manufacturing and B Corp status.
THE STORY OF SAUNA HOUSE
The idea for Sauna House started to form in the mind of our founder (hi Andrew!) while living in San Francisco and discovering the benefits of Hot/Cold/Relax thanks to a friend who treated his chronic pain with cold water of all things. After a 30-day cold water challenge, Andrew dreamt up a bathhouse where we’d want to hang out with our friends while healing our bodies and minds. Add a healthy dose of commitment to accessible wellness practices, a team of really cool humans, and a sprinkle of sass, and you get Sauna House.
