2. Trash Free Regatta: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Help us as we strive for a trash free regatta. For the trash you may have, put trash/recycling in the appropriate bins throughout the marina.

3. No Discharge: In the marina, please follow national and international standards.

4. Alternative Fuels: Use alternative fuels when possible. Ask the Green Team or stop by the EAG booth.

5. Recycle: Put only recyclable items such as plastic bottles and aluminum cans in the recycle bins throughout the marina. Ask the Green Team about recycling used Batteries, oil and cardboard or stop by the EAG booth.
