Ocean clean up

We love the ocean and spending time in our magnificent archipelago. The ocean currents are imortant for the marine life and our northern climate. But the currents also collects and brings ocean garbage mostly plastic that ends up on our islands and shorelines.

That is why we have invested time and money into projects to prevent ocean waste and to create infrastructures to avoid and minimise littering. But we also need to do something about the waste that is here right now and that is why we dedicate the 5:th of May named the Nordic clean up day to gather all of us that spend time in our wonderful nature and want to make sure it remains beautiful and clean.

When:
Sunday the 5th of May between 14-17 (Nordic clean up day)
Wednesday the 8th of August between 15-17

Where:
Skärgårdsidyllen main kayak centre Grönemad, Grebbestad
How:
The idea is to launch kayaks and paddelbooards from our main kayak centre to one or more islands depending of the number of participants. When we feel ready and if the conditions is right, we will light a fire and take a break from the clean up for a “swedish fika” (coffee and a bun/cake). Maybe we find some edibles right from the nature to spice it up.
If you do not have a kayak we have kayaks & paddelboards for rent and some extra bags, gloves and buns “fika” for everyone.
