1.500 kilos of garbage removed from the Norwegian coastline

An enormous effort has been made by Hurtigruten’s passengers and crew, making the coast line of Norway 1.500 kilos “cleaner”.  11 ships participated in this fleetwide beach cleanup, and the waste will be part of Lise Wulff’s EcoArt project HESJE (Norwegian for fish rack).

If the plastic pollution of our oceans continue iwhth the speed we have today, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans in 2050

The project urge all people to make a difference by minimizing the use of plastics, not throwing waste in nature, and picking up waste.

Thanks to the support of Miljødirektoratet and Hurtigruten Foundation, people could be transported to remote places not often visited by people (but indeed visited by plastic waste…).
