This subject is just too big and the guidance is changing too fast for Considerate Boater to cover. So we have provided a link to The Green Blue organisation.
The Green Blue is an exciting environmental awareness initiative by the British Marine Federation and the Royal Yachting Association. Its aim is to promote the sustainable use of coastal and inland waters by boating and watersports participants and businesses.
The Considerate Boater can do some very simple things like keeping engine running to a minimum, recycling rubbish, avoiding spillage and using environmentally friendly products.
But for more detailed information, take time to browse The Green Blue web site at www.thegreenblue.org.uk
Particularly helpful is the downloadable Guide to Inland Boating publication at The Green Blue Publications
The environment is what makes boating in the UK so pleasurable. We can all do our bit to help.
