Club Fit Is Going Greener!

April 25, 2019 by karen

Club Fit is working to reduce waste and leave a smaller footprint

 

As we continue to look for new ways to embrace our neighborhood and support about members’ well-being, we are taking steps to help the planet by implementing these green initiatives.

Club Fit recycles! In our cafés, we have made the switch to biodegradable straws and cutlery. The Eco-Products PSM (plant starch material) cutlery is made with 70% renewable resources, as opposed to the 100% virgin plastic used in manufacturing traditional cutlery. The Eco-Products straws, made from 100% renewable resources, are “so green, you can compost them!” And unlike paper straws, they don’t get soggy. Members have been telling us they definitely prefer these to paper straws. Also, starting May 1st, we will be offering ceramic mugs for your dining-in experience as well as a 20¢ discount for those coffee and tea drinkers filling up with a reusable cup.

To keep you informed about upcoming programs and events, we are now primarily utilizing TV screens as opposed to poster stands throughout the clubs. This cuts down on paper waste as well as freeing up space on the floor.

Over time, we are converting our lighting to use more energy efficient LED bulbs throughout the clubs.

How can you help?

• Use the recycle bins located throughout the club for all co-mingled goods club
• Bring your reusable water bottles and mugs
• When using items such as towels, plastic bags, napkins, and cutlery, take only what you need
• Help cut down on paper waste by viewing the class schedules and registering for classes online at clubfit.com

Our team is dedicated to providing more eco-friendly choices. Do you have other ways we can all do more? Please send me an email at lwelling@clubfit.com with your suggestions.
