Buxton Crescent Hotel and Thermal Spa is a new hotel opening in Buxton, Derbyshire in Spring 2020

A multi-million pound redevelopment of Buxton Crescent has been underway for the last several years.

The redevelopment and restoration following a £50 million investment is designed to put ‘Buxton back on the national and  international map’ as England’s leading spa town.

The five-star Lowry Hotel in Manchester has just signed up to a toiletry recycling scheme in its commitment to sustainability.

It is estimated that around 50,000 half-used hotel soaps are sent to landfills annually. The Lowry Hotel is working with Clean the World, a global enterprise dedicated to WASH (water, sanitisation and hygiene) and sustainability. They recycle discarded soap bars and empty toiletry bottles from hotel rooms and distributes them to those in need.

Half-used soaps from The Lowry Hotel will be shipped to a recycling centre in Amsterdam where it will be sanitised and ground into soap “noodles” before being pressed and cut into brand new 80g bars. The new soaps will then be distributed to charities around the world.

Miniature toiletries are one of the biggest causes of waste in the hospitality industry, with hundreds of soaps and bottles a day being thrown away half-used. The scheme will help stop these toiletries from ending up in landfill.

Other initiatives being pioneered by the Lowry Hotel include using sustainably sourced produce in its restaurant and offering a ‘eco turndown’ option for gusts to reduce its carbon footprint.

The Lowry Hotel is located on the banks of the River Irwell in Salford around a twenty minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly station.
