Keep Your Boat Green and the Environment Clean


Website: Travelers

Material Excerpted From: Travelers – Boat Tips

Clean Boating Tips:

1 – Clean safely.

Look for the EPA-Certified “Design for the Environment” DfE label, to identify cleaning products to help protect the environment.

2 – Chart your course.

Study your waterways to prevent boat propellers from damaging sensitive habitats or injuring marine life.

3 – Recycle your waste.

Dispose of paints, batteries, antifreeze, cleaning products, oil and other hazardous wastes at a waste collection facility when you return to land.

4 – Stow your trash.

Keep trash onboard and never throw plastic bags, soda cans, cigarette butts, fishing line, or any garbage into the water.

5 – Recycle your monofilament fishing line.

Protect marine life by properly disposing of monofilament fishing line at nearby marine accessories stores and shore-side recycling locations.
