Stuart Line Cruises Supports Sustainability
Here at Stuart Line Cruises, one key area we are always focused on is developing how we can support everything local.
Food and Drink
We aim to source all our food and drink locally, including the thousands of mince pies for our Christmas cruises, scones for our Devon Cream Tea’s, ales from our local Exeter Brewery and Exmouth’s very own Copperfrog Gin.
On the boats and in the office we recycle absolutely everything we can, to do our part in helping the environment. On the boats you our colour-coded recycling bins to help make it quick and simple for passengers and crew to recycle their rubbish.
Repairs and Maintenance
We have exceptionally high standards when it comes to looking after our vessels, and ensuring they are in the best conditions is a top priority.
With any major works needed, we aim to use a local shipworks in Cornwall. For smaller repairs and decoration, we aim to carry out repairs locally using locally sourced materials wherever possible. For example, using locally made products like Coach-Kote made by our very own local Exmouth company, Wilsons Paints.
Marketing and Promotion
Supporting local goes even further than just the physical things needed to keep the boats in operation. We also try to use local companies for promotional material. For example this very website, our print, design, photography and uniforms are all provided by companies based in Exmouth, all of which have an ethos of supporting everything local, just like us.
We try to get involved within the community as much as possible which is why we will always try to support charitable causes and local incentives. We are members of the Town team and Tourism Forum which is run by Exmouth Town Council where we offer our input into how to improve the town further and help raise thousands of pounds a year for local charities.
