It is the SofaToSailboat's aim to stay as ‘green’ as possible throughout the restoration, transport, during the ocean crossing, and afterwards.

These methods will include:

  • A sensible selection of materials and equipment used in the restoration.

  • Safe and proper disposal of materials/chemicals/paints used during the restoration.

  • Work with manufacturers with their own green policies.

  • Use good second-hand equipment rather than buying new if possible.

  • Use a rechargeable electric motor as secondary propulsion.

  • Use of natural renewable energy (solar/wind/hydro) for the boat recharging systems.

  • Use of recyclable materials and try to avoid virgin single-use plastics.

  • Eco-friendly and no micro-beads or tiny plastics in washing and personal care products.

  • Leave no mark – Sort and store all rubbish until the end of the crossing to be disposed of / recycled responsibly at the destination port.

  • Carbon offsetting of flights and boat transport.

As part of making our project more environmentally sustainable, we will be following the best practice guidance of The Green Blue, which is the joint environmental awareness programme created by the Royal Yachting Association, established in 2005 at the Southampton Boat Show.​
