Green Sail encourages positive practices in nautical tourism

first_imgGreen Sail, an initiative that encourages environmental practices within the nautical sector, with the aim of contributing to the development of sustainable tourism in Croatia, recorded a video on the positive practice of using a fishing rod with a net to remove waste in the Adriatic Sea.The Adriatic Sea is often described as crystal clear and attracts tourists from all over the world with its beauty. However, with the growing popularity of Croatia as a tourist destination, there are complex problems related to sustainable tourism. Moreover, pollution of the marine environment is one of the biggest environmental problems today and can cause serious consequences for the living conditions of marine underwater flora and fauna.Instead of the clean sea to which they are accustomed, locals are noticing more and more pollution in the form of plastic bags and bottles, fishing gear, glass, aluminum cans or styrofoam. Few, on the other hand, know that the average time for complete decomposition of a plastic bottle is at least 450 years, while plastic bags decompose on average in a period of 20 to 1000 years. The Green Sail initiative encourages the practice of using a fishing rod with a net during navigation to quickly and efficiently remove waste at sea.The rod is usually practical, foldable and portable and does not take up much space on a boat or sailboat. The handle, which is resistant to slipping, extends very easily and quickly and achieves a long range. Moreover, the rounded corners allow easy access to hard-to-reach areas.last_img
