Titanic Spa introduces 'no plastic' eco-initiative
POSTED 26 Mar 2018 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
The Titanic Spa, a luxury destination and eco-spa in Huddersfield, UK, has launched a 'no plastic' initiative that will see it completely eliminate the use of plastic bottles, straws and cups in a bid to drastically decrease its plastic waste.

The company was inspired to launch the initiative after Titanic Spa volunteers partnered with Natural Kirklees' Environmental Alliance and pharmaceutical company Thornton & Ross to clear plastic waste from a local pond. Over 500 plastic water bottles were removed, and then later recycled.

The spa has since replaced single-use plastic bottles, cups and straws with recyclable paper alternatives, as well as introduced eco-friendly reusable plastic bottles for guests to keep.

Warrick Burton, MD of Titanic Spa, said: "Plastic waste is a serious problem all over the globe, so we're delighted to have the public's support on this initiative.

"We successfully launched as the UK's first eco-spa twelve years ago and since then it's been our mission to continue leading the industry in a more conscious, sustainable direction," he added.

The new initiative is in keeping with the spa's eco-friendly ethos. The UK's first eco-spa, Titanic Spa is powered by solar panels and maintains the temperature through Low U value windows.

In addition, the spa uses natural spring water in its swimming pools, and towels and linens are cleaned onsite, using an OTEX laundry system, an energy-efficient system that effectively cleans at a low temperature.
