Shoreline Clean Up
We are currently focused on cleaning up the estuaries and coastline of South Devon. We hoped we would be able to move on swiftly but having taken out over 3 tonnes of material already, there is still much work to be done locally.
We will continue to work throughout the Winter as conditions permit as the seasonal storms bring in the highest volumes of material. If you find a large concentration of waste on the SW coast and need some help or if you would like to join in the fun when we go out on the water, please get in touch.
Sustainability Study - Rockfish
As part of a pilot project we were engaged to look at all aspects of the businesses operations and supply chain to identify where efficiencies and new ideas might be introduced. Excitingly this resulted in several recommendations being taken forward and we continue to work closely with the sustainability team in an advisory capacity.
The Dolphin Project
This project is in its infancy but we are hoping to be able to facilitate the up-cycling of this beautiful wooden boat working with a diverse team of experts, students, community payback & socially prescribed people who will benefit from being part of a social impact community project.
Learning new skills and working as part a team in the outdoors is a proven way to deliver positive outcomes. The goal is to turn Dolphin into a fantastic solar powered launch which will deliver educational and immersive nature experiences on the Salcombe / Kingsbridge estuary. Dolphin is a 28ft pitch pine on oak hulled motor sailer built in 1963 in Peterborough. We are looking for partners on this project with the; skills, space, enthusiasm or the means to help it come to fruition. Please get in touch if you would like to get involved and help give Dolphin, yourself & others a new lease of life.
Circular Economy Kayaks
Pioneering marine conservationist and director of Odyssey Innovation Ltd, Rob Thompson has come up with some entrepreneurial ways of using marine recycled plastic. These kayaks are the worlds 1st made from recycled fishing nets and they are things of beauty. Not only do they perform, they prove that a circular approach to business can work. With help from our partners CoGen and Rockfish we have invested in four double kayaks and are using them to help get more people out on the water doing something enjoyable and positive. We also use wooden paddles which are also things of beauty being; strong, light and 98% biodegradable. If you fancy a team event with a difference please get in touch.
