Protecting the planet is a top priority for leading hotel and spa textiles supplier, BC SoftWear, which considers the environmental impact of everything it does; from the factories it works with to laundry energy costs and plastic-free packaging.

CEO and Founder, Barbara Cooke explains:

“We constantly scrutinise our production processes to create the most environmentally-friendly towelling we can, without compromising on quality or longevity."

In the laundry, our SmartSoft range uses 70% less energy, 10% less water and requires 31% less drying time - helping to save the planet and save our customers’ money. Our range of biodegradable slippers are a popular choice for bedrooms of world-class establishments, including the Bamford Wellness Spa and Lucknam Park Hotel and Spa. We’re also using paper wraps and corn starch for our packaging, saving 50 tonnes of single-use plastic each year.

“Our spa carry bags, used by customers at Champneys and Aqua Sans Spas, are also fully biodegradable, and in our warehouse we’ve switched to paperless picking tickets and are replacing shrink-wrap with re-usable elastic bands for stacking boxes on pallets.”

With sustainability at the heart of everything it does, you won’t be surprised to learn BC SoftWear’s principle factory, powered by solar panels with a water treatment plant to reuse as much water as possible, is part of the Better Cotton initiative, encouraging more sustainable processes and fair working conditions.
