Green Initiatives

We’re passionate about sustainability and our environment

Here at Classic Cruises of Newport, we’ve become more passionate about sustainability and our environment.  One of the best decisions we have made is taking the initiative to go green and implement a cleaner way for us to conduct business on a daily basis.  We’re determined to go that extra mile to reduce our carbon footprint and work towards a cleaner, healthier environment for everyone.

A good planet is hard to find, so lets take care of the one we have right now!

We’re cleaning up how we do business to reduce our carbon footprint and we hope that this will give you some great ideas on how you can do the same.   Here’s just a few ways we have reduced our carbon footprint by more than 65%

  • Implementing a fresh water drinking system on our boats, allowing us to get rid of 90% of the single use plastic bottles we used to carry on board
  • Switching over from straight petroleum based diesel fuel to biofuel which burns clean, doesn’t harm the environment and is made locally with used vegetable oils from various restaurants in and around Rhode Island
  • Getting rid of plastic cups, lids, stir sticks and straws and changing over to biodegradable and compost-able disposable cups that once finished with, will return to the ground to help grow new crops

We’d LOVE to hear how you get into the green scene and we’d love to hear your thoughts on how Classic Cruises of Newport might be able to do even better.  Email us at info@cruisenewport.com  and put GREEN in the subject line

Live Green, Love Green, Think Green and Lets make Earth Day everyday!
