Ocean Blue o Two Bans Single-Use Plastic Bottles From Red Sea Fleet

Blue o Two Bans Single-Use Plastic Bottles From Red Sea Fleet

-

Liveaboard dive company blue o two announced that beginning this week it will no longer use single-use plastic bottles aboard its ships in the Red Sea.

The dreadful statistics of tons of plastics entering the oceans every year have led the company to no longer offer 500ml/17oz plastic water bottles or 1.5-liter/51-ounce shared meal bottles on its boats in the Red Sea.

Consequently, blue o two is encouraging its customers to either bring their own bottles or buy reusable ones onboard.

Blue o two’s move comes in the wake of its parent company Worldwide Dive & Sail banning plastic straws from all vessels, and WWD&S last month announcing it plans to implement more plastic-reduction measures soon, and will “incorporate a business strategy focusing on using as little plastic as possible in our global operations.”
