Gosford Sailing Club goes butt litter free with No BuTTs award winning Personal Ashtrays and Eco-Pole Wall/Post-mounted AshtraysGosford Sailing Club is the latest Yacht Club/Marina to go butt litter free with No BuTTs Personal/Portable Ashtrays and Eco-Pole Wall/Post-mounted Ashtrays.

Located on the Central Coast, less than an hours drive north of Sydney, Gosford enjoys spectacular ocean beaches and evergreen bushland and forests line the coast, with the mild climate offering comfortable surrounds all year round.

Gosford Sailing Club Commodore, Geoff Jollow said that the club was determined to eradicate cigarette butt litter around their club's property created by their club's members, guests and visitors.

Gosford Sailing Club's Personal Ashtrays from No BuTTs
"Even more importantly we want to eliminate the cigarette butt litter that we know is sometimes thrown over the side from yachts and boats. By distributing our No BuTTs Personal Ashtrays we are eliminating any excuse for people to flick their butts into the ocean - not that there is ever any acceptable excuse for littering anything anywhere, especially straight into the ocean."

"Installing No BuTTs Eco-Pole wall and post-mounted ashtrays at various locations around our club also assists members and guests to properly dispose of their butts because the fact is that any butts littered around our club that aren't picked up by our staff are going to end up on the beach and in the ocean and this needs to be avoided at all costs."

Gosford Sailing Club was established in 1932 and has evolved from an Acquatic Club with two 16ft skiffs to one which promotes the sport of sailing in all its forms, from junior training boats to ocean going yachts.

Gosford Sailing Club is the latest sailing club / marina to eliminate cigarette butt litter with No BuTTs"Marinas and Yacht Clubs are leading the way when it comes to protecting our environment and there's probably
no more sensetive area of the environment that needs to be protected than our oceans and waterways." said Jack Jacobson, 
No BuTTs Managing Director.

"Although most marine based locations take great care to minimise discharges, hazardous waste and the like from entering the water, the issue of affiliated cigarette butt litter has generally not attracted the same degree of attention, however in the last few years that has all changed."

"Affiliated butt litter is the cigarette butt litter created by any organisation's smokers, whether thay are employees, contractors, patrons, visitors, members, passengers, etc."

"Every week more Marinas, Sailing Clubs and Yacht Clubs are realizing that it's in their direct interests to also address this insidious environmental problem and are utilizing No BuTTs products to reduce and often virtually eliminate their cigarette butt litter."

The only kind of butts you'll see around Gosford Sailing Club
"Marinas, Yacht Clubs and Sailing Clubs are usually situated next to the water, and in fact many of these locations are actually built out on or over the water so it's critical for them to eliminate cigarette butt litter because as Geoff said, any stray or littered butts are going to end up in the water."

"Cigarette butts are toxic and leach poisons into the environment for years before they breakdown. They are mistaken by fish and birds as food and almost always end up killing the animal that has the misfortune of eating them."

It's not hard to see why Eco-Pole Ashtrays are now the world's best selling Wall & Post-mounted Ashtrays."Cigarette butts also damage the appearance of every location they're seen at and are also a very irritating distraction for the poor staff who have to go and pick them up one by one, when they've got much better things to do." said Jack.

"It's for these reasons that No BuTTs are now supplying well over 100 marinas, yacht clubs and sailing clubs across Australia with Personal Ashtrays, Tabletop Windproof Ashtrays and of course our Eco-Pole Wall/Post and Freestanding/Bollard Ashtrays."

All No BuTTs outdoor ashtrays are weather proof and made of 100% marine grade stainless steel which is critical for marine based locations like marinas, yacht clubs, jetties and wharves.

No BuTTs Eco-Pole Ashtrays are also tamper-proof and vandal resistant. No BuTTs Outdoor Ashtrays look great wherever they are installed and offer simple 1-step / 5-second emptying with no disassembly required.
