Titanic Spa launches initiative to tackle plastic waste

Huddersfield-based Titanic Spa has launched an environmental initiative to cut down the plastic waste it creates as global efforts focus on reducing plastics.

Spa staff discovered more than 500 plastic bottles in nearby Lowestwood Pond during a clearing project with local volunteers, leading the business to bring in a “no plastic” initiative with immediate effect.

The spa has stopped using single-use plastic bottles, cups and straws, and instead provides recyclable paper alternatives.

Guests can now purchase reusable water bottles decorated with the spa’s logo that can be filled from the spa’s natural spring.

The "no plastic" drive adds to Titanic Spa's exisiting environmentally friendly initiatives; the building is powered by solar panels and has thermally efficient windows. The spa’s pools are filled from its natural water spring and its towels are laundered onsite using a laundry system that cleans on a low temperature with ozonated water to disinfect fabrics.
