From today (Wednesday 15 September), visitors to The Green Directory, a joint initiative between The Green Blue and Sailing Networks, a social networking site for the boating community and marine industry, will experience a great new look, easier navigation and more information than ever before.

Jane Swan, The Green Blue Project Manager explains: “As well as having a design facelift, visitors will be able to locate the site with ease and by simplifying the product categories it will be quicker to add or search for products.”

The Green Directory provides a free way for manufacturers to list and publicise their environmentally friendly kit for boats, and for consumers to see some of the latest green goods and equipment available on the market. Currently there over 100 different products listed on the directory; including products from some of the leading names in the marine sector such as Henri Lloyd.

On the new site manufacturers adding their products will find an improved, more streamlined application process, and once approved, all products will be publicised to The Green Blue’s followers on Facebook and Twitter.

Listed products and services will feature in promotional boxes next to relevant content across the Sailing Networks site and a brand new Green Directory ‘listed’ logo will be available for companies with listed products to use alongside the relevant product on their own websites.

“These are some really exciting changes which we hope will encourage more manufacturers to use the site to showcase their products and more boat owners to use to find the best selection of green products for their boating”, commented Jane.

The environmental credentials of listed products on The Green Directory have been verified by The Green Blue before they are accepted, but the products are not endorsed by The Green Blue or Sailing Networks.
