Anyone who was moved by The Blue Planet documentary and further coverage of plastic in the oceans recognises the need for eliminating plastic waste whenever possible.

Marine 16 has taken this concept on board with its Classy Clean range that actively encourages the refilling and reuse of plastic

The environmentally responsible boat cleaners comply with MARPOL prevention of pollution regulations, explained Marine 16 MD Peter Weide.

“They achieve zero harm to the marine environment and produce zero plastic waste with a cradle to grave approach for all plastic used,” he said.

The range will be launched at Crick Boat Show and is aimed at boat owners who care for the waterways and the sea.

Two refill options

“Once a customer has emptied their original bottle, there are two refill options available,” Peter added. “For a significant saving, they can buy a concentrated product in a bag to refill the original bottle.

“With a post-paid label the bag is then popped in the post for return to Marine 16 to be refilled.

“Alternatively, they can be taken to a Marine 16 participating chandler for 50p off any product in store.”

In addition, the chandlers will have bulk facilities available to refill the original bottles for half the original bottle price, further reducing the carbon footprint of transporting product.

“The plastic received back at Marine 16 is refilled or at end of its life, recycled into new bottles,” added Peter. “We do not believe in bio degradable plastic as it does not fully biodegrade.

Cradle to grave

“Ensuring bottles and bags are returned to us completes the cradle to grave concept.”

Three products are available, a cabin and heads cleaner, deck and sails cleaner and engine and bilge cleaner covering around 95% of on board cleaning requirements.

Marine 16 will also introduce its Diesel Dipper to the inland waterways market at Crick. The, product is designed to suck water from the floor/bottom of a fuel tank below the fuel suction and by doing so, eliminate or prevents diesel bug and engine failures.
