A Spa, because it is heavily water oriented, has to limit waste through constant controls and continuous consciousness. We strive to maintain a green environment. For this reason we select natural materials with traceable origin (eco-friendly whenever possible) and save energy through controlled use of utilities. With features such as our in-house laundry we ensure you only get the purest linen and the most hygienic experience. This way, L’OCCITANE Spas curb our impact on the environment.
