Our commitment to the environment, to marine habitats and to the sport we love
We are excited to introduce BlueFuture,™ a name and a concept we hope will become a very familiar one to you in the years to come. We'd like to tell you a little bit about BlueFuture and what we hope to accomplish through it.
By its very nature, boating brings us into intimate contact with nature and our environment.
Starting in the earliest days of West Marine, we evolved our actions, policies and practices with a greater and greater focus on our impact on the world and its inhabitants. Though we did all kinds of “green” things long before the term was coined, and though we have donated millions of dollars to help hundreds of worthy organizations working in the areas of
- Resource conservation
- Rehabilitation and preservation of marine habitats
- Growth of boating
We’re more committed than ever to finding new ways to do even more!
What is BlueFuture?
BlueFuture encompasses West Marine’s company-wide efforts to do what we can to make the world a better place; focusing on Sustainability in all its forms, protecting and improving marine environments, assisting in communities where we live and work, and helping bring the passion for boating to more people.
There's a lot to do!
The challenges we all face in creating a more sustainable future are huge and ongoing. Our efforts are, at best, just small steps that are taking us in the right direction. But with that said, we believe that we can all win when we embrace the BlueFuture.
