Florida Sea Grant has taken a number of steps to reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impacts.
We use only recycled paper and soy-based inks.
We minimize the use of hard copy documents.
The default setting on our printers is “double sided.”
We have reduced travel by using webinars in place of face-to-face meetings.
We hold meetings at green hotel facilities.
We actively participate in Clean Marina programs.
We actively participate in fishing line recycling programs.
We teach fishermen how to release fish in a manner that will help reduce mortality.
We teach people of all ages and cultures about environmental stewardship.
Where possible we use compostable or reusable cups, plates and utensils.
We actively promote the use of reusable water bottles to help cut down on ocean debris.
