June Tong's idea for an eco-friendly bath is interesting on a few accounts. For one, the concept by the designer — a student of the Royal College of Art, builds on the "parasitic and destructive" nature of cruise ships. He envisions that one can utilize the waste, generated by the means of transportation, to power an Arctic thermal bath. Secondly, it will operate as a spa facility, however, there is a catch. June Tong's proposal extends itself as a way to "promote Arctic exploration through a more sustainable model for long-stay tourism." Because of that, 'In Murky Waters' has limited access, assuring that it will not be accessible to people on large cruise ships.
Upon arrival, the boats will deposit their waste, creating not only the catalyst for power for the eco-friendly bath but also offering a slightly more convenient and sustainable way for these businesses to operate.
