It is the projects aim to stay as ‘green’ as possible through the restoration, transport and during the ocean crossing.

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 single-use plastics.

  • 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.
