Sustainability: using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged

Sail Salem is committed to providing environmental stewardship.

We have a “leave no trace” policy both at sea and ashore.

Sail Salem Has joined the race to restore ocean health and is a proud member and advocate for Sailors for the Sea.

We ask instructors, campers, families and all involved with Sail Salem to reduce waste, avoid using single use plastics (such as bottled water), and prevent toxins from entering our marine habitats.

Please Protect Our Waterways

Tell Congress to support the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act! This bill reduces plastic pollution at the source and builds on the actions of cities and states across the U.S. by phasing out unnecessary single-use plastic products, putting a moratorium on new and expanded plastic production facilities, and holding companies accountable for their plastic waste.

Boaters see firsthand many of the issues that our oceans face, from pollution which fouls their playground, to overfishing and habitat destruction, which threaten marine life and the source of food for billions of people around the world. Through our solution-oriented programs, we unite a core constituency of sailors and boaters, nearly 12 million strong, whose support helps to win victories to save the world’s oceans.
