Things you can do at home

Follow an environmentally friendly lifestyle as far as possible:

  • buy locally caught fish from sustainable sources
  • avoid single use plastic bags & use long life shopping bags
  • buy goods with less packaging or plastics
  • use environmentally-friendly detergents
  • don’t buy ‘marine curios’ that were once alive
  • recycle and dispose of litter in appropriate places.
