Regarding the crew and the maintenance of an eco-friendly stay on-board, is necessary to apply always the three rules of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
When considering a sustainable environment, the reduce of plastic is the first thing that comes up to our minds, which could be substituted by installing on-board a water filter system that dispenses chilled and boiling water that can be used by the crew and guests. That means no more plastic bottles used, more storage space freed up, less time wasted in buying, transporting and storing. The members of the crew should always have their own bottle to refill and create for guests a water station with sparkling and flavoured waters.
We’ve discovered the “Girls Going Green” Instagram account (@gggreen_yachts), superyacht stewardess that create homemade products from simple ingredients as soap, vinegar, alcohol, baking soda, essential oils… and they also make their own toiletries.
More eco-products that can help the superyacht industry join the change into a clean ocean, are the ones related with the boat cleaning products. Here is an example provided by Ecoworks Marine that produce the “Preserve the Living Seas®” range of yacht and boat cleaning products which are environmentally clean, sustainable, eco-friendly, non-flammable, concentrate liquids and have been specifically formulated for the Superyacht, boat and marine industry.
