Cruises around Vancouver
Harbour and into False Creek
Approximately 3 hour cruise
Ends at Coal Harbour Future Options To Sail? Or Not? - Reduce yachts from 20 independent yachts

on and off boats - Dinner can still be served on the boats - Dock boats at a harbour where there is a
restaurant Option 1 Option 2 - Dinner can be served in the restaurant Food Waste The majority of waste on the ships is from food prep and uneaten food. Food Waste How can we eliminate food destined for the garbage dump? Sustainable Caterers: Savoury City One Planet Caterers Chef Laura The Lazy Gourmet Peake of Catering Sustainable Practices: - Local, in-season, organic produce - Re-usable dishes, glasses and flatware - Source fair-trade goods - Grass-fed meat and meat products - Source Ocean Wise fish and seafood - Compost food scraps and leftovers - Recycle food packaging - Donate left over food to local shelters - Environmentally safe cleaning products - Recycle cooking oil - Conscious of water usage - Green delivery vehicles Energy Current Energy Yachts are lavishly decorated with
traditional tungsten bulbs on top of
regular electricity used for lighting, heating, air conditioning, a/v, etc Reduce? - Only LED lighting permitted for decor lights (reduce 90% electricity caused by
Christmas lights) - Maximun amount of lightbulbs (50% less than what is used currently) Carbon Emissions Direct Emissions Emissions from running the boat (exhaust, heating, etc) Indirect Emissions Attendee travel, food production, etc Event Mile Transportation Offsite Office Materials Food Prep Food & Beverage Ticketing Venue AV & Production Lighting Public transportation will be encouraged by offering reimbursement and/or the guest will be entered
into a draw for a prize (with proof of transit). Local, organic, fair trade foods will be sourced that contain minimal water use and a lower carbon footprint LED decorative lights will significantly reduce the loss of energy by approximately 90%. LED light expectancy is 100,000 hours. A cap of how many lights and/or wattage being used will also be in affect. APEX
STANDARDS Yachts are to be powered by diesel-motored generators. They will also come equipped with small windmills and solar panels on their masts. This will power the boats with solar and wind energy. Yachts are to turn off engines when they are stationary. This includes stops at ports of calls en route. All registration and ticketing will be managed with an online database. All scraps are to be composted. Dinner will be served as a plated meal on porcelain plates. Glassware and stainless steel flatware will also be utilized. Offsite office will be in an organizer's home. All necessary printing will be done on recycled paper using a vegetable based ink. Electronic devices will be completely powered down when not in use and managed with the use of a power bar. Each yacht will be equipped with traditional carol books. These books will be used for the duration of the event every year it runs. Paper Waste Paper Waste Sustainable Practices Measurement Food & Paper - Posters/Signage - Carol Books - Tickets - Napkins - Registration Documents - Paperless Ticketing - Non-Specific Signage
(no dates to reuse annually) - Correspondence done electronically - Reuse Carol Books annually - Electronic Registration and Ticketing
