Extreme Green

Some things don't look right -- that's Earthrace!

In June 2008, the Earthrace vessel set a new world record for a powerboat to circle the globe.

She did this with 100% renewable biodiesel fuel and a net zero carbon footprint.

The voyage was over 24,000 nautical miles, and took 60 days, 23 hours and 49 minutes, smashing the old reocrd by over two weeks.

The Owner/Skipper of Earthrace, Peter Buthune, has a wealth of knowledge on the oil industry, having worked as an Oil Exploration Engineer in New Zealand, the North Sea and North Africa.

Pete is passionate about the environment, and believes strongly that renewable fuels must become a key part of our transport fuel mix.

He is also keen to promote positive measures that everyday people can make to reduce their environmental impact, not just in transport fuels, but in many areas of their lives.

Click Here to see Pete's suggestions on how you can make a difference.

In this list of suggestion, Pete makes reference to reducing packaging and eliminating single-use bags and encourages reusable bags.
