Titanic Spa goes plastic free

Yorkshire’s luxury eco-spa, The Titanic Spa, has announced a
new ‘no plastic’ initiative to cut single-use plastic waste.


It will completely eliminate the use of plastic bottles, straws
and cups in a bid to decrease its plastic waste. All plastic
will be replaced with recyclable paper alternatives and guests
will be invited to keep their eco-friendly reusable water
bottles, which they can fill directly from the natural spring
on site.


The Campaign was inspired after Titanic Spa volunteers teamed
up with Natural Kirklees’ Environmental Alliance and
pharmaceutical company Thornton & Ross to clear plastic
waste from Lowestwood Pond. More than 500 water bottles were


Warrick Burton, MD of Titanic Spa, says: “We successfully
launched as the UK’s first eco-spa 12 years ago and it’s our
mission to continue leading the industry in a more conscious,
sustainable direction. Plastic waste is a serious global
problem, so we’re delighted to have the public’s support on
this initiative.”


This is not the only eco-conscious step that the spa has made –
it also makes use of solar panels and thermally-efficient
U-value windows. A natural water spring is used to fill
swimming pools and plunge pools, and there is an OTEX laundry
system, which cleans on a low temperature with ozonated water
to disinfect fabrics.
