Using easily recycled aluminium cans instead of plastic water bottles.
Another alternative to plastic water bottles, this time the container itself is biodegradable.
Edible food wrappings! By using seaweed as a food wrapper alternative to plastic Evo addresses two seemingly intractable issues, poorly paid seaweed farmers now receive a fair wage while we can enjoy either eating or disposing of biodegradable food wrappings. Pure genius!
When James Corwell, a US certified Master Chef, visited the fish market in Tokyo he found enough tuna to fill warehouses the size of two football fields. With a volume of 2,000 tons of tuna sold every single day, he questioned how the oceans could keep up with such demand. He was inspired to start developing sustainable alternatives to fish and his efforts gave birth to Ahimi™, a plant-based alternative to raw ahi tuna that’s made from tomatoes!.
Contrary to what one might expect from a tomato-based product, Ahimi does not taste like tomatoes—nor does it have an artificial imitation-fish flavor. Ahimi has a flavour and texture similar to sushi-grade tuna. It is reported to taste just like fresh tuna and blend perfectly with other sushi ingredients (avocado, cucumber, seaweed, rice), as well as soy sauce and wasabi.
The benefits of consuming this plant based tuna include saving our oceans from being permanently depleted of tuna stocks; avoiding the consumption of mercury and heavy metals; eliminating the risk of acquiring parasites contained in most raw fish; and enjoying the health benefits of consuming Ahimi’s principal ingredient–the tomato, which is a nutrient-dense vegetable that helps protect against cancer, maintain healthy blood pressure, regulate blood sugar, and deliver a range of other benefits that support healthful skin, heart health, weight loss, and eye health.

This company is well known for honouring its environmental responsibilities. Its various species of teak come from managed SE Asian forests with fifty plus year felling cycles and unlike numerous competing operations which employ mechanical equipment clearing roads through otherwise untouched forests Teakdecking Systems employs elephants – yes, elephants…. In this way they are able to remove teak logs without damaging new growths.
The MARPOL Annex V rules govern the disposal of garbage from ships and yachts. This includes all kinds of food, domestic and operational waste, all plastics, cargo residues, incinerator ashes, cooking oil, fishing gear etc. Garbage builds up quickly and occupies a lot of precious space on board and this is where Tony Team comes in. This company sells waste compacters which can they claim reduce the waste to 16% of its original size.
