Luxury spa linen and footwear supplier BC Softwear has launched a new sustainability initiative that aims to combat flip-flop waste in spas.
BC Softwear supplies millions of pairs of flip-flops to spas annually, most of which end up in landfill after use. In order to reduce the environmental impact, the company has partnered with waste management organisation First Mile, and ethical textile recycling firm Reskinned, to offer its spa and hotel partners a more sustainable option.
“We’re committed to running our business in the most sustainable way possible,” said BC Softwear founder and CEO Barbara Cooke.
“We supply approximately three million pairs of footwear per year and are all too aware of the impact that has on the environment. We’re delighted to be piloting a new scheme with the Exclusive Collection to collect, recycle and repurpose their discarded flip-flops.”
