The Isles of Shoals’ M/V Thomas Laighton recently underwent a series of sustainable renovations to its interior. They are the first major interior renovations since the vessel was constructed.

About 50 percent of the old materials were recycled, reused, or donated, all interior lighting was replaced with high-efficiency LEDs, and the new interior carpet is made from recycled content and, along with the new ceiling tiles and ceiling grid, is recyclable. Additionally, a stainless steel railing system was installed to replace the old railings. This new system will last the life of the vessel, and eliminates the need for the epoxy-based paint necessary to maintain the old rails.

The Isles of Shoals Steamship Company is an active member of the Green Alliance, a union of over 100 green businesses across New Hampshire, southern Maine, and northern Massachusetts. The GA aims to promote sustainable, environmentally friendly business practices with all of its members. Not a member? Join here and get two free tickes for any Reggae on the River cruise!

The city of Portsmouth and its community members are calling for a day of action against climate change. Those interested in attending should meet in front of North Church at Market Sqaure in Portsmouth, NH to take a stand against climate change. Those participating can also call their Senator, issue a press statement, submit an LTE, or be vocal at local events. The day of action will support the EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP), intended to be the greatest action our country has taken toward extinguishing climate change. The CPP will allow for a decrease in the effects of climate change, protecting public health and will encourage the development of clean energy.
