Simple Ways To Lessen Your Plastic Usage on a Sailing Holiday. We know that going plastic-free is challenging, but we can do something better, and it starts with lessening the use of single-use plastic. So, if you are planning for a sailing vacation in Playa Del Carmen with your family, get the next generation involved and learn how to take good care of the oceans.

Here are some ways we can help the oceans.

 Skip the straw

Let’s skip the straw because there are many sea creatures like seabirds that eat the straws, and this can be deadly. When ordering drinks, inform the waiter or the crew that you don’t want a straw or any other plastic. Instead, you can use reusable, biodegradable bamboo straws and enjoy sipping your drinks or cocktail on deck at sundown without one.

Get a reusable bottle.

Stop using disposable cups, instead invest in a reusable bottle and fill it up. You can check with your charter company in Playa del Carmen or with locals if the tap water is safe. With this, you can help reduce the use of plastic cups.

Use eco-bag or Reusable shopping bags

When packing for sailing in Playa del Carmen, don’t forget to take some reusable shopping bags with you to avoid using plastic bags when buying supplies in the port. 

Light a match

Use match instead of using plastic disposable lighters. They are a scourge of the sea and birdlife because they are mistaken for fish, and many a bird has died with a belly full of plastic lighters.

Help clean the ocean

Perhaps when you are sailing in Playa, you will stop off at a quiet cove. So, if you see any plastic in the water or on the beach, pick it up and take it with you.

Use biodegradable sunscreen
