Reduce - This is a nifty car sharing scheme. Advertise your car space availability or lift requirements to get to sailing events and reap the environmental, social and financial benefits. This service can extend to any means of transport of people, of boats etc where space is up for grabs e.g. Trailer space, container space.
Reuse - Give away or exchange your unwanted sailing gear, boat bits etc and there is no limit on size - go for smaller items such as fenders right up to old or unwanted boats. Simply put your details on the site and interested parties can contact you directly through the SNW internal messaging system. There is a 'Wanted' section too and it's all good news for encouraging networking and engaging the community spirit.
Recycle - Aimed at the marine market to donate rather than dispose of their off-cuts and surplus product for another organisation to make use of e.g. A wetsuit company's off-cuts of rubber, rope offcuts etc.
