Help us tread a little lighter!
Improving our carbon footprint
We all have one and here at China Fleet Country Club, Saltash, Cornwall, we’re proud to be working hard to be more environmentally friendly and we need your help. Times have changed since we first opened our Club doors 27 years ago and we’re delighted to announce we’ve made some small, but important changes.
Firstly, you may have noticed we no longer use single use plastic cups at our water stations throughout the Club. With stations in the Hotel, Gym, Aqua Spa and Fitness Studio, you can imagine how many we used! Instead, we’ve replaced these with paper ones in the Aqua Spa and encourage everyone to fill up reusable bottles instead – either bring your own or buy one from our Reception Desk.
In the Brasserie, we have also stopped using plastic, single use straws and stopped using the small sauce and condiment sachets which we have replaced with bottles on the tables instead. You may have also already purchased one of our reusable coffee cups, which are available from the Brasserie, saving the use of throwaway cups.
Outside too, we’ve added 2 Electric Car Charging Stations, including a quick-charge station that charges in just 20 minutes. Charge up using the Polar downloadable smartphone app, RFID card or Polar key fob.
That’s not all! In our newly, refurbished gym, we have been saving money too with the “Hybrid Mode” on our Elevation with Discover consoles for Bikes and Ellipticals, this powers the equipment when in use reducing the electrical draw that you would otherwise be pulling to power the consoles. It can also add a small amount of energy back to the grid – if you’re really working hard!
We hope you like all the new, eco-changes we’ve made. It’s important we do our bit for the environment – after all, keeping fit shouldn’t literally cost the earth.
We have to lead by example which is why I can now be spotted with my reusable coffee cup which I take to all my meetings. I drink a lot of coffee so you can imagine how much lighter my footprint is now!
