The Ramoge Accord has launched its second summer campaign “Je navigue, je trie”, which will raise awareness among boaters of the Port de Fontvieille and Port Hercules again this year.

This campaign, carried out in collaboration with the Urban Development Department, the Monaco Harbour Operations Company, the Yacht Club of Monaco and “Gestes Propres”, aims to reduce marine litter by distributing bags destined for sailors to collect and sort their rubbish.

At the request of the Prince’s government, the bags offered to boaters will no longer be made of recycled plastic material but of biodegradable material, in order to meet the environmental requirements of the Principality.

The harbourmasters of the ports of Fontvieille and Hercules, as well as the marina of the Yacht Club, will make available two bags for collection, one for the waste to sort and one for waste that cannot be recycled.

This initiative aims to encourage everyone to respect the marine environment. It also meets the commitments that link the ports of Monaco to “Clean Ports” certification. “I sail, I sort” is a simple but effective contribution to help preserve our marine heritage.
