With a deep-seated devotion to the environment and the cultures we encounter and embrace, OneSpaWorld strives for a better tomorrow by effecting positive change in the lives of our guests, employees and the inhabitants of the destinations we visit and the locations where we operate and call home. Sustainability is at the core of our commitment to the world, and through our advocacy and support of a diverse range of charitable organizations and activations, we are making strides and inspiring others to leave this world a better place.
Wellness is at the heart of what we do. Therefore, it is only natural for OneSpaWorld to conserve and preserve some of the most precious wildlife and ecological resources of our habitats as part of our environmental initiatives.
Much like our own sacred spaces, wild plant and animal species have their own place to co-habitat. Wildlife plays an important role in balancing the ecosystem, and OneSpaWorld’s goal of wildlife conservation is to ensure that nature will be around for future generations.
The largest ecosystem on Earth, the ocean is a life support system. Generating half of the oxygen we breathe and containing 97% of the world’s water, the ocean also harbors wildlife and reduces climate change impact. Vital for our livelihood, the world’s oceans require health and care for our survival.
Invest in a world where everyone has clean and safe water. OneSpaWorld thirsts to contribute to efforts delivering water to the 1 in 10 people worldwide who live without clean water and spend hours walking daily to collect water for their families.
This land is our land. OneSpaWorld contributes to making a real-world impact in conserving our lands and ensuring the long-term survival of all biodiversity on Earth. Grounded in a commitment toward land preservation and reforestation, we partner with global-decision making organizations that nurture a healthy environment on this planet.
Human touch is the greatest form of comfort. Our commitment to cancer care reaches beyond donating to organizations in search of a cure. In addition to non-profit partnerships, OneSpaWorld has pioneered a worldwide massage program that brings a caring, impactful approach to nurture the well-being of anyone currently undergoing or in remission of cancer treatment.
In collaboration with ELEMIS, OneSpaWorld is introducing new sustainability practices to reduce environmental impact. ELEMIS’ improved packaging solutions ensure we are mindful of our environment, consumers, staff and the next generation.
Every day we make progress, as innovation evolves, and our knowledge grows. Positive work has already been achieved with reducing paper usage, plastic water bottles, as well as recycling paper in the work place, light censors to reduce electricity consumption, and changing packaging materials from polystyrene to recyclable pillow packs.
We currently have 6 new environmental directives that have a work stream aiming to deliver in the next 12-24 months.
Moving all plastic tubes to include a percentage of PCR plastic (post-consumer recycled) and where possible 100% PCR, creating more than 2 million more sustainably produced tubes.
Removing more than 500,000 plastic spatulas from global production, saving 450kg of plastic waste to landfill.
Removing 2.7 million language leaflets in retail boxes and moving to online information, saving approximately 9700kg a year, reducing paper waste and protecting our forests.
Removing 1.2 million cardboard liners where possible, saving approximately 9070kg in waste each year, reducing paper waste and protecting our forests.
Removing soft touch coating on bottles, allowing more than a quarter of a million bottles/6273kg to be recycled.
Moving to Forest Stewardship Council certified paper and card for all cartons.
