New 'Green Directory' helps you help the environment

Ever wondered where to buy a biosock? Pondered about purchasing phosphate-free boat wash? Drawn a blank on bilge filters? Help is at hand. In association with the RYA’s Green Blue initiative,The Green Directory is aimed at taking the stress out of green shopping.

The first online one stop shop for anyone wanting to invest in greener products and services for themselves and their boat, The Green Directory provides boating consumers with information and a choice of carefully selected products that claim to be more environmentally sensitive.

The products listed in the Directory have been carefully selected and fall into one of the following categories:

? They aim to prevent environmental damage from occurring
? They aim to minimise environmental damage, mainly through minimal use of harmful ingredients
? They aim to provide innovative solutions to issues of sustainable development of the marine sector
