Plastics in our oceans are an issue that is receiving increasing attention worldwide. All who navigate on our inland waterways have their role to play in preventing plastic wastes from entering any water body. Plastic wastes on great rivers like the Yangtze or the Rhône are less spectacular than the great Pacific plastic vortex, but part of the same phenomenon. This is brought home to us by this simple infographic produced by BritishWaterways Marinas Ltd, for the attention of boaters. This includes the steps boaters can take to begin to rectify the plastic problem the world is facing and prevent it from getting any worse – from using eco-friendly starch cutlery to avoiding disposables such as straws and plastic bags. It is also a handy reference for those currently looking for canal boat moorings for rent, helping them be prepared for a more sustainable life as a boater.
