We are constantly being told, and rightly so, how important it is to protect the environment. To ensure rubbish and other pollutants do not get into the sea. Many of you will have watched Blue Planet 2 recently will have seen the terrible harm plastics are doing to the marine environment.
It is a very important issue and some thing that has been publicised in the boating press and by the RYA.
It is a pity that the same boating press and RYA do not set more of an example and find a better medium for their postal and other packaging, perhaps a good old fashioned paper envelope, rather than the plastic packaging that they currently use?
