Our Community Movement

A small amount of time. Just one day. Just one moment to make a difference. Our community projects are hands on approaches by volunteers, employees and partners of the organisations and companies we work with. As a Green Sail Ambassador you can get involved by identifying an area you want to change and doing something about it. We can help with resources including people, advice and financial investment in promoting and running local projects.

A Community Project

Our Green Sail Flag project was an initiative that was created from an educational workshop in Croatia where our participants discussed and identified the problems faced with recycling onboard yachts around the Croatian islands.

Problem Identified:

Lack of Facilities

The main problem identified was the high number of plastic bottles used for drinking water on charter yachts which are not recycled and go into mainstream rubbish or sometimes into the water.

This is due largely to a lack of recycling facilities at ports and marinas. On speaking with authorities the facilities were not being provided due to a lack of demand from customers and in some cases ignorance towards the benefits of sustainability.

Our Solution

Conversation starters:

The Green Sail flag project has been designed to create this demand by customers. Green Sail flags onboard yachts are a reminder to recycle onboard. They tell boats around them that recycling and caring for our oceans and seas is important.

They are conversation starters and are a simple way of creating demand for recycling services. As part of this project Yacht Charter companies are setting environmental policies to shape their corporate decisions.

They are given flags for customers to fly on their vessels and recycling stickers to put on bins onboard yachts. All of these small steps are the catalyst to creating demand, awareness, educating tourists and eventually changing the way recycling is managed in Croatia. The project is scalable and can be applied in any boating destination to raise awareness to the protection of our seas and oceans.
