Going Green

At Welsh Sea Rowing we're committed to doing all we can to promote environmental awareness and encourage our clubs to 'Go Green'. There are simple things we can all do to reduce our carbon footprint and help conservation.

Bertie the Sea Bass helps ‘Turn the Tide on Plastic’
  • Nominate a club environmental champion. This person will be someone passionate about our planet that can work with your committee and members to stay up to date with current best practise. 
  • Encourage club members to walk or cycle to training. When races resume and regulations allow, car share where possible. 
  • Help with local beach cleans and litter picks. 
  • Use collected water rather than taps/hosepipes for washing equipment. 
  • Promote a plastic free zone. Encourage the use of reusable water bottles, consider single use plastic free zones and plastic free events. 
  • Use eco-friendly products at your club house and take measures to reduce your energy consumption. 

Welsh Sea Rowing is also working in partnership with The Wildlife Trusts to promote their Living Seas Campaign.
