"The beginning is the most important part of the battle." Plato
We may still be waiting for some of the government initiatives to catch up, but with the help of Al Gore's film, An Inconvenient Truth, and enthusiastic activists throughout North America, citizens are making more environmentally friendly choices and taking the status of our earth into their own hands. As boaters, we believe that it is our responsibility to maintain and protect the waters we enjoy. Many of us, having grown up on and around the water forget that only 3% of the earth's water is fresh and much of that is trapped in icecaps. We may forget that the Great Lakes alone hold 25% of the world's usable fresh water, but it would take a lot for us to forget the beauty and serenity of the lakes that we use.
Boaters can make some of the greatest supporters of environmental programs because our lakes are not statistics; they are our backyards, our playgrounds, and the homes of our hearts. Please join Buckeye Marine as we try to preserve the resources we use so often. Find more information on clean boating and green cottaging by clicking on the links below.
