Urban Retreat Paddington - Thanks to all of our wonderful clients who come to us to have their energy recycled by having a Massage or some time out.  We love to hear the things that you are doing within the community to support our Green Street. 

We have been able to reduce our power useage in terms of drying linen by using beautiful Sarongs  instead of heavy towels and sun drying them instead of using a dryer.  We also sun dry at home and no longer have need for a clothes dryer.

The Urban Retreat is committed to improving our methods of trading as a Green Business.  We believe it is the small things that count and that is what we are working on.

Come in and visit us if you are walking past No 24 La Tobe Street, Paddington.  You will see that we are a small community of businesses trading out of the one location.
