Closeness to the ocean

We are running several boats and are working to expand our fleet. We are working for the ocean, and we want to stay close to it, so we do not rent an ordinary office – all our full time personell, lives in boats.

Through 2017 to 2019 we’ve have cleaned more than 350 tonnes of litter from Oslo to Kirkenes, that is – the full coastline of Norway.

Most of our crew is volunteering young adults from 20-25 years age, that travel to Norway from all around the world, to participate in beach cleaning for 4-8 weeks. They are accommodated on our boats, and work 6 days a week cleaning.

This movie is a testimonial from Maike, one of our volunteers that has stayed with us both in 2017, 2018 and 2019:
