Responsibility & Sustainability


Responsibility

Nantucket Whaler and WhalerUSA are committed to support student athletes on Nantucket. Participating in competitive sports here is a sport in itself. A 90 minute game “in America” commits the athlete, the coaches and parents to travel by boat or plane.

Student athletes on Nantucket have a higher rate of graduation and more go on to college than non-athletes. We are proud to do what we can to remove any barriers that may exist so more students choose to participate and that the experience of our athletes is enhanced.

Nantucket Whaler also supports Sailors for the Sea who believe whether you race your sunfish on a lake, or are on your 20th circumnavigation – you have the power to solve the most serious threats to our oceans. Visit sailorsforthesea.org. 

Sustainability

We mindfully use eco-friendly materials wherever possible in our ongoing effort to protect our island community and yours.  We ship all orders from Nantucket.  We source garment and shipping bags that are recyclable, recycled, biodegradable, renewable, reusable and upcycled. Our retail store and office utilizes CFL and LCD lighting, recycled ink cartridges and recycled paper. Nantucket takes recycling and conservation seriously, as do we.

In 2009, Nantucket achieved a 92 percent recycling rate and was recognized by a national advocacy group as the nation’s top recycling community.  In 2014, Nantucket installed smart, solar powered trash receptacles throughout the island to reduce its carbon footprint and further improve its recycling rate.  Nantucket Whaler is proud to do business responsibly from here.
