You may not know that Watkins Mfg, the maker of  Hot Spring Spas is committed to building the most environmentally friendly spas. In honor of Earth Day last week, I wanted to share with you the newest of their efforts.

The people who build the most energy-efficient AND the best-selling spa in the world are continually devising ways to take ‘green’ even further. Beginning this week, the white paper used to wrap Hot Spring spas has been completely eliminated.  Now the Hot Spring logo, website address, and trademark information are printed directly on to the corrugated brown cardboard wrap. This change allows Watkins to decrease the amount of paper used in production, and decrease the amount of paper waste once a spa has been delivered. Hot Spring spas are now wrapped in paper that is 100% recycled and 100% recyclable. Once the spa has been delivered, our Olympic Hot Tub Company delivery crew puts the spa wrap directly into the recycling bin!

At Olympic Hot Tub, we’re committed to reducing waste and reusing everything we possibly can. Thank you to Hot Spring Spas for giving us reasons to celebrate Earth Day every day!

RES EST SERVA VOLUPTAS. Pleasure is serious business.
