Let's make the sea plastic free

Every year, 8-10 million tonnes of plastic waste end up in the world's oceans. Along the West Coast alone, 1000 tonnes of plastic and other waste wash ashore annually. Plastic in nature has major consequences for marine life – but together we can make a difference.

We will make the West Coast
a cleaner place

We dream of a clean nature – free of plastic and other waste.

That's why we focus on plastic pollution locally as well as globally, organise beach clean-ups and communicate knowledge about the sea and pollution. We want to bring more people on the journey towards an ocean without plastic.

Our Efforts

Collection

Together with volunteers, tourists, school classes and businesses, we collect plastic waste from our local beaches.

Recycling

Part of the collected plastic is cleaned, shredded and recycled into new unique products in our ocean plastic workshop.

Prevention

We convey the story that plastic does not belong in nature and give presentations on marine litter, circular economy and recycling.

Ocean plastic recycled into new products

In our workshop in Nørre Vorupør we recycle marine plastic for new products. Each product is unique and helps ensure that we can remove even more plastic from the coast.

So when you buy a STRANDET ocean plastic product, you help ensure that 1 kg of waste is removed from the West Coast.
