Orangetheory Fitness is launching biodegradable, plastic-free gym wipes at studios nationwide

EDMONTON, AVE, April 19, 2023 /CNW/ – Orangetheory Fitness announced today that in its ongoing commitment to promoting environmental sustainability in its studios, it has officially launched Natrulab Biodegradable Disinfectant Wipes at its 110 locations in Canada. The wipes, which are produced without harsh chemicals, make Orangetheory the first fitness brand in Canada to adopt this type of plastic-free sustainable product.

The new partnership underscores the brand’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

“As a national brand, we have the ability to implement significant changes in our studios that will have a long-lasting positive impact on our environment,” says Blake McDonald, president of Orangetheory Fitness Canada. “For years, the fitness industry’s only option has been cleaning products that are not only entirely derived from plastic materials that will take hundreds of years to degrade, but also include harsh cleaning chemicals. These new Natrulab wipes allow us to eliminate many of these chemicals in our studios to provide a more comfortable experience for our members and allow us to remove what would be the equivalent of 52 National Hockey League ice surfaces in plastic materials from our landfills every year.”

The Natrulab wipes that debuted in Orangetheory’s studio Canada earlier this year use a plant-based biodegradable viscose material with safe cleaning ingredients that kill 99.9% of viruses, bacteria and fungi. The wipes, which are certified by Health Canada, are among the first products in their class available for commercial use.

“We are committed to being a leader not only with our fitness product, but also with our environmental sustainability efforts,” McDonald added. “We believe these changes are essential to our operations and are committed to ensuring our members feel they made the right choice in trusting Orangetheory Fitness as their fitness solution.”
