Bluewater Sailboat: Green Living – 15 Ideas for green living on a Bluewater sailboat, and how to Reduce pollution in our oceans From sailboats. Our Carbon Footprint does have an Impact on the Ocean. Suzanne travels on a sailboat and reduces her own carbon footprint on the oceans we all sail. From reducing the use of plastics to putting less chemicals in our oceans, this may slowly save our oceans, and also give us all a healthy life on a sailboat. Cruising Sailboats are multiplying, and may of us will be the last ones to see pristine waters. Many of us show sailing videos sailing through beautiful turquoise undisturbed seas. But will we be the last generation to see this? Will our sailing children only see pollution and trash filled oceans? Lifeless, with no sea animals, and dead coral?
As Cruisers, we have a respect for the ocean, and we are possibly the least offenders of polluting our oceans. But Suzanne has some ideas for us all to reduce pollution on the sea, and in anchorages even more. Many of these things, I have never thought of before, and maybe they can help you too, to live more environmentally friendly as you sail around the world. She purposely released this video with Creative Commons so that more people would see it. I am hoping re-releasing this video on this channel will get it some more views, and spread the ideas around…

The full length edition of this video was originally published on Oct 31, 2018 by Suzanne, “The Oceanpreneur”.. She hopes it gives you some ideas on what you can do to make a positive impact on our oceans. I reshape it and shorten it to make sure you get this important message, to help protect our oceans, and save it for our children to sail upon and enjoy.

Watch out for Europeans (especially the French) with "green" ideas that make no sense. A lot of fluffy ideas with little effect. Environmentally friendly Sunscreen = clothes. "All natural" cosmetic sunscreen? Doesn't mean it is reef safe at all. Tiny water filter that you pump by hand? Good for your ego and forearm muscles, otherwise no better for environment than RO system or bleach (bleaching rain and stream water is probably the most environmentally friendly system by far, and also the cheapest so you can spend more money on saving the environment instead of filters). Recycling 10 square centimetres of fabric for a wallet and then replacing the entire storm sail? I would have repaired the maintain sail with some old clothes until I could get into port and repair it with scraps left over from someone else who made a new sail. Or kept some scraps on-board for future repairs. That would save several square meters of fabric. If I junked a whole sail to use 10% of it to make a repair (emergencies do happen) I wouldn't later brag about how I recycled a tiny scrap of it to make a wallet. Too much ego and empty rhetoric in these ideas, not enough impact. It gives "green" a bad name 🙁

Number one way to reduce carbon footprint as a cruiser? Burn less diesel. There are starting to be more and more cruisers who don't even have diesel motors. Just electric for manoeuvring in and out of harbours. I'm looking into that for my boat, but I want to do the math first and I might keep the conventional diesel motor and use it for running everything (hot water heater, etc.) if that turns out to be more efficient. But I won't buy a new diesel motor. They cost half as much as a high end electric system with batteries, chargers, solar and wind generators and everything.
