Best Practices

Having an effective Green Team should be the first thing you consider when hosting a Clean Regatta.

Well-labeled bins and volunteers to help point people in the right direction are paramount to an event having good waste management.

On average, Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour and many of them end up in the landfill, or worse, your local waterway.

Water filtration systems are a great way to encourage participants to drink more water in a sustainable fashion.

In the classic “three R’s”, “recycling” comes third after “reduce”, and “reuse”. 

When influential events implement and adopt greener practices such as composting, the benefits are threefold.

At your next regatta, consider reducing as much paper as you can by prioritizing paperless communications. 

While this option is a little bit more time intensive, providing reusable dinnerware at your regatta is ultimately the most environmentally friendly option you can provide your participants and attendees. 

Regatta trophies can be very energy-intensive to create and often end up sitting on a dusty shelf somewhere. 

Keep your site clean.
