The eco-conscious lifestyle is growing in popularity, meaning your spa needs to match client tastes. That means providing eco-friendly alternatives to engage with modern clients, helping the environment and preparing your spa for the future. To get started, here is our list of essential eco-friendly considerations to help attract clients to your spa.
Energy saving alternatives
It’s surprising how much energy goes to waste throughout the day, which is why energy efficiency should be the first area to make eco-friendly. Energy management systems (EMS) can turn off idle equipment, whereas insulating your windows will increase the comfortability of your clients. Lighting is the most costly of all, but renewable sources such as solar panels help power your spa whereas LED lighting can make up the shortfall everywhere else.
Reduce water waste
Reducing water usage not only reduces water wastage, but also reduces energy use. This is win-win for both you and clients, as you’re helping the environment and saving your spa money. In the long-term, this can be achieved with cost-effective additions such as low-flow shower heads, timers and tap aerators.
Eco-friendly clients will be savvy to what products have eco-friendly ingredients. As such, it’s worth stocking products with organic ingredients or those that are alcohol-free, especially those in recyclable packaging such as glass bottles. That way, your clients be drawn to the natural products you use.
It’s not just your products that could benefit from being eco-friendly, but your facilities themselves. For example, a chemical-free pool may prove attractive if cleaned with bio-based cleaning methods such as reeds or ozone treatment. You could also make the environment attractive around the facilities match their treatments, such as serene plant life for natural mud treatments.
The materials around your spa will be amongst the top noticed aspects by your clients, so why not make those eco-friendly too? Materials such as recycled paper for menus or vegetable dye for ink can make a real difference and won’t go unnoticed by clients. Meanwhile, furniture décor made using wood from renewable forests will not only look appealing, but also encourage clients to make use of them.
