Our Commitment

To the Environment and Sustainable Tourism

At Body Glove Cruises, we are fully committed to providing a sustainably operated tour that conserves and nurtures our environment. We strive to become more sustainable now and in the future by continually re-examining our process to find new, innovative ways to reduce our impact on the environment.

UILA (Energy)

Throughout our company we lessen our impact on the environment. Through the use of timers, Energy Star appliances, and a strict maintenance program on all of our equipment we ensure low energy usage company wide. The ‘Kanoa II’ is equipped with state of the art solar panels to help offset our fuel consumption and with a ‘no idling’ policy in place for deliveries, our partners help us keep our carbon footprint to a minimum.

WAI (Water)

Being on the ocean everyday, we have a special appreciation for water as our most precious resource. In order to protect our water sources and all the life they contain, we’ve adopted the Coral Reef Alliance standards for all excursions and are Dolphin SMART compliant. We also offer complimentary reef-safe sunscreen for all guests. And to reduce water waste we have input low-flow sinks and toilets throughout the company.  Furthermore, we use bio-degradeble chemicals and plant based detergents to make sure nothing we utilize will harm the land and the ocean we love.

‘ĀINA (Land)

We are proud to be a business serving 100% plastic-free disposables. We compost our food scraps and recycle all plastic, glass, and aluminum in an effort to keep our contribution to landfills to a minimum.

We work closely with local farms, businesses, and establishments to bring a uniquely Hawaiian experience to all of our trips. From our produce to our liquor and beer, we try to serve items that you cannot find anywhere else in the world.

 

 

 

Body Glove is proud to use fully sustainable cups from Vegware. The products are plant-based and made from renewable, lower carbon, recycled/reclaimed materials. This allows us to avoid using unsustainable plastic cups that contribute more to the plastic crisis.

 

 

 

We have partnered with a local school to help compost all of our food waste to teach the next generation about the importance of a sustainable mindset.

 

 

 

We are the first tour operator in the state of Hawaii to offer complimentary reef safe sunscreen on all tours, proudly doing so since 2008.
