We have joined forces with The Green Blue to launch a Single-Use Plastic Free Accreditation scheme for inland and marine clubs, training centres and boating businesses. This new standard will highlight the responsible and innovative products and practices by organisations in the recreational boating industry.
There are three levels of certification for organisations to rise through: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each level is determined by the organisation’s dedication to eliminating single-use plastic items from their activities. Suggestions can include, the removal of plastic cutlery, sustainable toilet rolls and eco-friendly cleaning products.
Depending on which level a club, training centre or business achieves, they will then be able to promote their certification with the accreditation’s logo, which they can add to their business credentials. A list of all the participating companies achieving a certification will also be added to both environmental ambassador websites, making it easier for recreational boaters to make informed decisions when planning their next shopping trip.
If you are interested in signing up for the accreditation scheme, please visit our dedicated site here (opens in a new page):
We hope the accreditation scheme is a huge success and will help these organisations to reduce their single-use plastic footprint. If you have any questions about the scheme, please click on the button above or email us.
