Let’s not add to the trash
If you read the recent post about the Carriacou Hash, you’ll perhaps remember that a beach clean up was organized prior to the start of the run. The photo of the numerous full bags shows you the amount of trash that was picked up but what you might not know is that a large portion of that garbage was single use plastic bottles. Rebecca and I really avoid purchasing single use water bottles, instead opting to carry with us Nalgene-type bottles filled with tap water. In fact, we almost always have one with us.
When I wrote about installing the faucet in the cockpit it is because our plan is to distribute water bottles to each of our guests when they arrive on board. That way they can keep themselves hydrated and not add to the crazy amount of plastic pollution out there. The water feeding that tap will be coming from our watermaker which produces super pure water. We also opted to purchase wide mouth bottles so that those who prefer to can add ice to their water.
Of course, we do expect that water will not be the only beverages served on board One Love which is why we also ordered an assortment of colorful koozies to keep the beer cans and soft drink cans cool. We do not like warm beer!
