    Excel Long Range Sportfishing
    Waste Management - Announcement

    In an effort to become as green / environmentally friendly as possible, we have decided to begin the elimination process of all single use paper and plastic items from the Excel.

    We realize that we have been producing far too much waste while on trips.

    The following items are being phased out:

    Paper plates
    Paper cups
    Paper bowls
    Plastic cups (throw away)
    Bottled water
    Plastic utensils

    We will switch to reusable versions of the above items. We will have coffee mugs for everyone to use on trips.

    You may prefer to drink water from bottled water and that's fine. You may bring your own bottled water on the trip if you'd like. If not, we make plenty of drinking water like we always have prior to having bottled water on-board.

    Our environment is important to us and we feel this course of action is a good start to helping reduce waste from items that can easily be reused.

    Sincerely,

    Excel Sportfishing

    Thank you Excel

    Great move. Another reason why I will keep booking trips on the Big X. They care about our playgrounds ( Oceans )

    That's really cool. Might take some getting used to for some people, but it's really the right thing to do.

    Hate fishing with people that just throw stuff overboard because they think it's the ocean and there's already so much trash in there it doesn't matter, or it's just going to "disintegrate" in the ocean which isn't true either.

    I mentioned doing this on another long range boat and was told that it would be too much of a hassle to wash everybody's coffee cup. I hope the whole fleet sees this and follows suit.

    I got that email from Jason as well. I always bring my own cup for water and soda. I liked it when they gave you cup on each trip... I was hoping to get a large set in a lot of colors but I just have the two!

    See this all the time and really dont understand it, there's a garbage less than 10ft away and seems they go out of their way to throw whatever it is over the rail.

    Glad to see excel going this route and hopefully others follow.

    Cool for the X, but other boats like the Islander have pretty much already had this policy...except for maybe the water bottles.

    Years ago the Rooster was already doing this. Glad to see others getting on board (no pun...)

    As much sense it makes environmentally, I'm sure it also makes a lot of sense from a financial standpoint as well.

    Seems like all the LR boats that signed onto the Code of Ethics they have posted should update that pledge to include this sort of thing and then actually follow there own rules. Good for the Excel to take this step. Long overdue.
