"Waste in nature is our shared responsibility"Tobias Weber-Andersen - Founder of GreenKayak
The NGO GreenKayak
The NGO GreenKayak is an environmental initiative, which aim is to reduce the amount of waste in bodies of water. Our main activity is to offer volunteers a free trip in our GreenKayaks, in return for the collecting of waste from water surfaces and sharing experiences from the kayak on social media with #greenkayak and #miljøkajakken.
The GreenKayaks are highly effective for collecting waste from water bodies. The kayak is extremely flexible and can get close to areas that are otherwise hard to reach.
The GreenKayaks are double-sit-on-top kayaks and with space for two persons. The kayak is very seaworthy and previous kayak experience is not necessary. When borrowing a GreenKayak there will be provided equipment for collecting waste and safety equipment too.
During 2017, more than 800 volunteers used a GreenKayak in Copenhagen and more than 3.5 tons of waste were collected from the harbor. Since then, the NGO GreenKayak has opened locations in Aarhus and held a series of activities, focusing on the collection of waste from the nature and water areas.
