Thursday 6th of June 2024

ELE|NA Spa is thrilled to announce its significant achievement in sustainability, receiving both Gold and Silver Awards from the Sustainable Wellness Organization. This recognition was given to multiple ELE|NA Spa locations for their exemplary sustainable spa operations.

The Gold Award was presented to ELE|NA Spas at OZEN RESERVE BOLIFUSHI, OZEN LIFE MAADHOO, OBLU NATURE Helengeli By Sentido, OBLU SELECT Sangeli, and VARU By Atmosphere. Meanwhile, the Silver Award was bestowed upon OBLU SELECT Lobigili and OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi.

This announcement comes on World Environment Day, an event spearheaded by the UN Environment Programme. This year's theme, "Ecosystem Restoration," aligns perfectly with ELE|NA Spa's ongoing efforts to promote environmental stewardship and sustainability.

Sustainability Efforts and Initiatives

Heidi Grimwood, Vice President of ELE|NA Spa, expressed her pride in the team’s accomplishments: “This Gold Award is a testament to the unwavering dedication and tireless efforts of our team members across all properties. Each of our spas has appointed a Sustainable Ambassador who is constantly bringing new projects to life every month, ensuring that our sustainability efforts are continuously evolving and making a real impact. This recognition highlights our commitment to creating an eco-friendly and sustainable environment for our guests and staff alike.”

ELE|NA Spa’s success in securing these awards reflects its comprehensive approach to sustainability. Each spa under the ELE|NA brand has a dedicated Sustainable Ambassador responsible for introducing and overseeing new eco-friendly projects every month. These initiatives focus on reducing waste, conserving water, and utilizing sustainable products and energy sources.

Furthermore, Sustainable Ambassadors conduct workshops for guests, teaching them how to make sustainable snacks, home essentials, and skincare products. These hands-on activities provide guests with practical skills and empower them to adopt sustainable practices in their daily lives. By engaging guests in these activities, ELE|NA Spa extends its commitment to sustainability beyond its operations, fostering a culture of environmental responsibility among its clientele.

A Dual Approach to Sustainability

The efforts of ELE|NA Spa are not confined to operational practices but also extend to educating guests and staff about the importance of sustainability. This dual approach ensures that everyone involved with ELE|NA Spa is part of the journey towards a greener future.

Heidi Grimwood emphasized the collaborative effort required to achieve these sustainability goals: “The significant role that each team member plays is crucial. The combined efforts of our staff, guests, and the broader community are essential in driving the positive changes needed to protect the environment. By continuously evolving our practices and setting new sustainability benchmarks, ELE|NA Spa is leading the way in the wellness industry.”

Commitment to a Greener Future

The recognition from the Sustainable Wellness Organization on World Environment Day serves as a powerful reminder of the impact that dedicated sustainability efforts can have. ELE|NA Spa remains steadfast in its commitment to fostering a culture of environmental responsibility, ensuring that their operations contribute positively to the planet's health and well-being.
