Ocean Ambassador Jayne Rigby has led Liverpool SUP Co to win an Echo Environment Award, thanks to her Starboard in the City initiative. Recognising those across Liverpool who live up to its ethos.
Importantly, Liverpool SUP Co have dedicated its time and passion to a greener and more sustainable world!
Starboard in the City started and is thriving thanks to Jayne at Liverpool SUP CO. In fact, thanks to these efforts, they won the Community Impact Award!
This award recognises local communities working together, promoting positive neighbourhood improvement projects & communities making the best use of green space. Including their work with Starboard In The City. Some of the things the Liverpool SUP CO team have already done so far includes; litter picks both on the water, working with local groups in local parks and CRT on the water and on the beach and a marine conservation workshop too.
Moreover, the aim of the initiative is to get more people in our community engaging & talking about ways we can help save our oceans, our environment and truly make a difference. Additionally, let’s check out what is on Liverpool SUP Co’s radar moving forwards…

Starboard in the City
This program brings together schools, local beach and park clean groups and even local councils. Starboard in the City is bringing together the community to learn from workshops and litter picks, all to clean up our planet. Most of the clean ups hosted by Liverpool SUP Club are on paddleboards, making the experience even more enjoyable for the local community.
