GreenBlue wants to know what you think about how they’re going .. .
The UK division of GreenBlue wants a report card from the British sailing fraternity. Emma Slater writes:

Take part in The Green Blue Survey 2012 and tell us what you think about the work of The Green Blue and you could be in with a chance of winning two fabulous directors chairs from Reefer Sails plus a white wine hamper from the Eden Project – delivered just in time to enjoy the spring sunshine!

Since its founding in 2002 (launched in the UK in 2005), The Green Blue has talked to thousands of boaters, and hundreds of clubs and marine businesses about ways to reduce our impact on the environment, but we’d like to know how you feel about the work of The Green Blue and ways in which we can further improve.

'We know you’re doing your bit and we’d like to think we’ve made a difference but to see if that’s true we want to know your thoughts. Only by hearing from you will we be able to improve what we do and how we do it.

'From recycling to using solar pvs, from catching antifoul drips to slowing down around wildlife, share your concerns and tell us what more we can do to help', commented Jane Swan, The Green Blue project manager.

The survey only takes ten minutes to complete but it could make a real difference, plus you could be the lucky winner of these great goodies – all sustainable of course! It’s that easy.

The closing date for survey entries and to be entered into the free prize draw is Friday 30 March 2012.
