RS Sailing is committed to sustainability within our
boats and operations.

We care about the future of the planet and its oceans for
the next generation of sailors.

RS hulls
About 70% of RS sailboat hulls are made from 100% recyclable
polyethylene material.

They are tough so likely to have a
long life – but if your boat reaches “end of
life” please contact your RS dealer for disposal information – more info here http://www.polychem-usa.com/polyethylene-recycling/

We are testing sustainable materials for use in GRP
hulls and will incorporate them into our production where strength : weight
properties allow.

Note: The RS Aero weighs only about the same as an
Optimist – so uses less than half the GRP materials previously expected of a
boat of its size.

RS Spars
70% of RS spars and 50% of RS foils are aluminium and can
be recycled.
RS HQ recycles our waste metal.
We offer a broken spar drop-off service for RS and other
classes at our Romsey, UK base.

RS Packaging
RS boxes are made from 100% Recyclable material and 100%
managed woodland materials.
RS boxes incorporate a high percentage of recycled

RS boat wrapping is made from “Polyair”, using  XX% material of plant origin.
The wrapping is technically classified as paper.

Our packaging waste is sent for
RS encourages all our customers to re-use our boxes and to
send packaging for re-cycling.

Practically Paperless
We’re not entirely
paperless but we’re working on it and getting there, within practical
