Our work behind the scenes
On board, we are limiting the use of single-use plastics. In our restaurants, stainless steel cutlery has replaced plastic, coffee stirrers are made of wood and straws are made of paper. In your cabin, refillable dispensers have replaced plastic individual soaps and cups are made of paper.
5.7 million plastic items have been eliminated in one year alone, including 2 million cups.
80% of the products served on board in our restaurants are French. They mainly come from Brittany and Normandy to offer you the best of our regions.
We give priority to local producers to guarantee you fresh, seasonal food and reduce our carbon footprint.
A greener cabin
In your cabin, the soaps and shower gels are now eco labelled: fragrance and dye free. The cleaning products we use on board are water-based, effective against dirt and environmentally friendly!
We have various measures in place, on land and at sea, to help raise awareness.
- During the Plymouth to Roscoff and Spanish sailings, volunteers from Océanopolis and ORCA are on board to provide you with information and help you to observe and understand marine mammals and the marine ecosystem. From spring to autumn, come and meet the teams - you may even spot a dolphin or a whale!
- Equipped with a virtual reality helmet, dive into the heart of the ocean and discover the fascinating world of plankton in our Planktomania educational animations!
- Do you use the Plymouth to Roscoff route with your family during the summer holidays? Take part in one of the fun marine biology on-board workshops led by Marinexus
