We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. As a boating business the coastline is our lifeline, and we need to protect it for the generations to come. We believe that people and places can inspire, educate, and influence behaviours. We want the boatfolk community to have a positive impact on the marine environment (and the planet) and we know that this change must happen soon.
Our current focuses are marine wildlife, ocean plastics, clean water and renewable energy. We’re doing what we can to minimise our environmental impact and helping our community make positive changes too. Because we can’t be experts in everything, we work closely with charities and environmental partners that have goals aligned with ours and are already doing great things to protect the environment.
Protecting other species
At each of our locations we have dedicated Marina Mascots, with species from cuttlefish to curlews. Each site has something that they can tangibly do to assist; be it protecting habitats, surveying numbers, through to education around how best to live in harmony with many of our planet’s magnificent creatures.
Tackling plastic pollution
We are in a unique position to make a change to how things are done in our sector and help eliminate plastic pollution. Whether it’s preventative by changing behaviour, or running beach cleans to clear up the plastics already littering the coastline this isn’t something we take lightly.
Doing our bit
We are on a continual journey to reduce our carbon footprint and are doing all we can to put our shoulder behind the global efforts to meet environmental targets and ensure that our stunning environment can be enjoyed by generations to come.
Keeping water clean
We want to do all we can to engage with customers and stop boats pumping untreated blackwater into the marine environment. Currently UK marinas have insufficient facilities, and we’re passionate about leading the way - providing easy, cost-free pump out solutions to our customers.
Making positive changes
We’re actively working on educating our community about correct antifouling, promoting responsible practices and working to implement changes that will keep chemicals out of our oceans.
Join our revolution
Whether you’re a solo eco-warrior, sustainable business owner or just taking your sustainability journey one day at a time our goal is to get as many people as possible working to protect our coastline.
