As a result of removing single use disposable cups from the water machines around the Club and reducing members’ usage to 1 cup per person per visit, we are delighted to announce some encouraging results.
In March and April this year, the Club used 6000 cups. However in the five month period from June to October, following implementation of our waste reducing measures, less than 1000 cups have been used.
The Club is still using the existing stock of Vegeware cups, so in addition to the positive environmental impact, money is being saved. We would encourage members to bring water bottles to be used in the Club and thank members for their continued support.

Single use Disposable Cups
With many companies across the country trying to reduce the use of single use disposables and a noticeable increase in our usage over the past few months we have decided to remove all cups from our water coolers in the Club. Cups will still be available from a member of staff on poolside, each member will be limited to 1 cup per visit. We urge members to help reduce single cup use and bring with them their own water bottle.
We will now be recycling all used plastic bottles (shampoo, conditioner, bodywash etc.) so please add these to our poolside recycling bins!

Vegeware, it’s made from plants not plastic
As part of our drive to reduce waste going to landfill and improve our contribution to sustainable waste management the Club has replaced single-use plastic food and drink packaging with cups plates and cutlery made by Vegware for use by members.
Vegware supplies catering disposables made from renewable, lower carbon or recycled materials which can all be commercially composted.
