Bibby Marine reduce single use plastic by 65%

Bibby Line Group // 28th February 2022

Did you know that 300 million tons of plastic are produced globally each year, half of which is for single-use items? Reducing single use plastic reduces our impact on the environment, helps us to become a more sustainable business and influences positive change.

As part of Project Compass Bibby Marine is reducing the usage of single use plastic bottles and items on board our vessels, and so between 2020 and 2021 achieved a fantastic 65.7% reduction of the usage of single use plastic items on the Wavemaster Vessels.

There success has been held up as best practice in a presentation featured on the UK Chamber of Shipping website.

Mark Whitehead, BML Commercial Manager: After close consultation with the crew, bottled water on our WaveMaster vessels have now been replaced with easy-to-use water fountains which supply still and sparkling water, with everyone supplied with reusable bottles. We also stopped delivery of plastic cutlery, stirrers; and instead now use reusable Lunch boxes.

“Not only are we reducing the amount of plastic waste but we have calculated this can save 2.3 tonnes of CO2 per year, that’s the equivalent of traveling from Liverpool to Emden Germany (where the home port for the project is) and back in a Diesel VW Golf 21 times.”
