GreenKayakfor a sea without trash
GreenKayak is a NGO working to reduce the amount of garbage floating in our coastal waters. The idea is simple – volunteers get free GreenKayak trips in return for collecting trash. GreenKayak also shares knowledge, and helps people of all ages get out on our beautiful oceans and take action.
