Boat Users

As boaters we all have a vested interest in protecting the environment where we spend our leisure time and The Green Blue is dedicated to ensuring you get the best possible advice on how to do that.

As more and more of us take to the water we risk damaging the natural environment. Whether it’s the coast or the inland waterways that float your boat, you can’t have helped but notice that the water is getting more crowded and with numbers come problems.

Nobody wants red tape and regulations and our aim is to avoid this by encouraging people to voluntarily change their habits and become more environmentally friendly every time they go boating.
