P1 Marine Foundation & Green Blue supply teams with spill kits

At the opening event of the season in Plymouth, P1 SuperStock teams were given spill kits through a link up between P1 Marine Foundation and The Green Blue.

This spill kit is the ideal first response to accidental oil or fuel spillage of up to 10 litres. It includes pads, wipes, disposable bags, as well as other supplies. Fuel and oil can be toxic to marine plants and animals if they enter the water. As most detergents are equally as harmful, it is important that spill kits are used on such occasions.

P1 SuperStock teams have been equipped with spill kits in the event of any small spills; this will help to reduce the impact on the marine environment.

P1 Marine Foundation is currently working with Powerboat P1 to establish environmental initiatives at their SuperStock events. An important part of this activity is raising awareness of environmental best practice within Powerboat P1, its community and key audiences.

The Green Blue is the joint environment programme created by the British Marine Federation and Royal Yachting Association for anyone who enjoys getting out on the water or whose livelihood depends on it.
