Green Initiatives

Galter Life Center has been making important strides in keeping our facility environmentally friendly. Some of the initiatives we have adopted in the past few years include:


  • Throughout the facility, there are bins to recycle paper and plastic bottles.

Use of organic materials

  • All amenities (soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotions) in our locker rooms are made from organic materials.

Cutting down on paper

  • Our newsletter is emailed rather than printed and mailed.
  • We communicate special happenings through email and our website.
  • We have signature capture pads for credit card payments at the Courtesy Desk and Membership Office to save paper.

Reducing Plastic

  • We sell reusable wet bags in our proshop and encourage members to bring bags from home for wet swim suits and workout gear to lessen the use of single use plastic bags.

Saving energy

  • All lights in professional offices run on sensors and turn off after a certain amount of time passes with no movement.
  • Window clings help keep heat out and trap air in which keeps the heating and cooling systems from overworking. 
  • Solar panels covering the roof. 

"I do different things in each of my three classes for older adults and with each instructor and I feel like I'm moving all different places that have been stationary and deoxygenated for eons. They have wonderful energy and instruction methods. " -Keren
