Giving Tuesday - Sailors for the Sea

Giving Tuesday

 December 2, 2013  | By: Oceana

Seven actions you can take to help the ocean!

1. Be an ocean hero

This #GivingTuesday, support Sailors for the Sea’s ocean conservation programs.

2.  Rethink your drink

Replace all those single use plastic water bottles with a refillable, reusable bottle.

3. Think alternatively

Use biodiesel, solar and wind power on your boat.

4. Clean it up

Choose non-toxic cleaning products that are better for the environment.

5. Back to the earth

Compost table scrapes, lawn trimmings and leaves – they’re good for your garden.

6. Hull it over

Use copper-free bottom paints on your boat, and ensure that bottom cleaning takes place in approved areas.

7. Eating well

Learn more about overfishing and use that knowledge to purchase sustainable seafood.
