We've been working with Marinas for many years now, and work closely with these organisations to provide education and support to Marina staff and guests, through marketing materials and educational courses.
Marinas have the option of joining our Partner or Verified Partner program. Both approaches seek to assist marinas in effectively managing their recycling, promote the reduction of sea and coastal pollution, improve education, and develop environmentally friendly practices that can be applied both internally and with clients.
With the help of marketing materials and educational programs, we have been collaborating with our Partners Marina for many years in order to educate and support the staff and visitors of marinas. We cover:
We also offer a range of online courses to give partners the tools required to make sustainable choices everyday.GO TO KNOWLEDGE HUB
We work closely with partners to implement and expand the number of recycling facilities accessible within Partner Marinas. We've filled out a map of Dalmatia with marinas that provide recycling facilities to their staff and visitors in an effort to support Croatia's maritime tourism industry. Visitors can then use the map to plan their sailing itineraries and stop at marinas that support the environment along the way!
To increase awareness of the value of waste and recycling separation in marinas, we have created a line of bin stickers that are given away without charge to marinas. The Green Sail team collaborates closely with marinas to guarantee that stickers are placed in prominent locations and that trash cans are easily accessible to visitors. The Green Sail Sticker initiative accomplishes this by ensuring proper waste management and preventing waste from entering the sea.
Any Marina that wants to become more environmentally responsible can become a Marina Partner and spread the Green Sail message to their stakeholders. Marina Partners receive:
