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.

Roman contributes to this cause by spreading the word, in addition to his every day activities; recycle and re-use as much as possible, be conscious of the use of water as a resource, and of course, his personal cleaning efforts every time he is on the water or near a beach.

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 PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY

Apart from inefficient recycling system on a state level, a big issue is the lack of ecological awareness and personal accountability in the local population especially in terms of recycling and waste separation, as well as inadequate or lack of appropriate recycling system which should be ensured by the corresponding local authorities.

Specifically, the main problem identified is 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.

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.
