ECO-FRIENDLY SAILOR’S MAP

We joined other sailors to create together an eco-friendly sailor’s map. When traveling by sailboat, we go from harbor to harbor without knowing the local “tricks” to remain zero waste. This card allows us to gather information from different markets, local producers, bulk stores, … and makes life easier for environmentally conscious travelers.

The more we are, the more information we have to share! Don’t hesitate to send an email to EcoArvik if you have addresses or if you want to contribute! ecoarvik@exocean.org

In collaboration with Eco Arvik.
