Whilst up at Eden, I met up with Dan Reading Of THE GREEN BLUE.

Backed by the British Marine Federation and the Royal Yachting Association, The Green Blue is testing out practical projects, conducting research and providing advice, to help recreational boating go green. 

 The Green Blue objectives are:

•To provide more readily available information to industry and users about potential environmental impacts of recreational watersports and effective mitigation measures.

•To raise awareness of how users can purchase, maintain and use their craft and equipment in an environmentally responsible manner.

•To promote sustainable boating so that increases in participation figures and the size of the recreational marine industry are achievable while minimising environmental degradation

•To encourage the design and production of innovative environmentally friendly products, facilities and processes within the recreational marine industry

•To raise awareness of the interaction with the local environment amongst providers of marine services and amongst watersports participants

•To work with partners, authorities and managers to raise awareness and appreciation of coastal and inland water environments

Dan is the Sustainable Facilities Officer and more details of The Green Blue can be found here:
