Powerboat Superleague has received a boost in the effort to go green. Eco-First, Incorporated has signed on as an Operation Green Prop sponsor, providing recyclable and disposal assistance to teams and contributing $1,000.00 to the yearend points fund.
“When we introduced the going green initiative, we were met with plenty of skepticism. In speaking about motorsports, ecological-friendly is not a term that is used. However, we know that everyone has a responsibility to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible within the parameters of their individual businesses,” explained Superleague spokesman Sherron Winer. “Once we established our core initiatives, it quickly became clear that it would be possible to reduce our carbon footprint both at the racing events and in the office. Eco-first has made our initial efforts not only easier but also reduces, by recycling, waste created by teams that would normally go to a landfill.” Eco-first will bring two waste-disposal barrels to all Superleague events. One container will be used for materials such as oily rags, pads and other absorbent materials not suitable for local trash collection. The other barrel will collect old gearcase oils, old fuels and other petroleum liquids – those products no longer viable for racing. Eco-First will see that everything is recycled properly.
“Our company is excited about becoming part of APR Superleague’s Operation Green Prop initiative and we look forward to helping the league and the individual racers reduce the impact that racing has on the environment,” Ayers, Eco-First Operations Manager said. “ECO-FIRST strives to be an industry leader in recycling efforts and we commend Superleague’s management and teams for working to help preserve nature’s race course.”
