It really makes me happy when I get to know awesome projects and can help them in some sort of way. This week, I met the Nordic Ocean Watch project in Helsinki. It is an organization which it’s main goal is to raise awareness about the consumption of plastic and the amount of it and of trash that ends up in the oceans. They teamed up with Twenty Knots, a surf school, to clean the Eira beach.
The amount of trash that was removed in only three hours is unbelievable. It’s worth it getting to know more about their work. It’s inspiring how willpower can move the world! I also spoke to one of the project members and he shared more information about it.

The organization is the Nordic Ocean Watch. It is an organization that started in Norway. They do different events through out summer in Finland and you’ll find more about it at the NOW Finalnd (Nordic Ocean Watch Finland) social media.

Finland has nature everywhere you look. The country was truly blessed! Having a space where I can collaborate to bring awareness of how important that nature is to our lives makes me grateful. We need to realise that it doesn’t matter where you live. The oceans, the woods, the forests, the wildlife, everything is relevant to all. They are part of the eco-system and breaking this cycle, creates a problem to the entire world! We have to ALWAYS remember that the garbage’s place is inside the TRASH CAN!
