The Story of CleanSea
Me (Lukas) and my sister Mikaela have since a young age spent our summers with family along the west coast of Sweden. We've been swimming in the salty water, fished for the oceans delicacies, been diving to explore it's fascinating marine life and gone for walks along the beautiful coastline. Today the ocean means a lot to us.
And it was on one of these walks along the coastline that we noticed a bay in Ramsvikslandet, full of plastic. Plastic bottles, bags, ropes, gloves, discarded fishing nets and plastic packaging in all colors. There were thousands of pieces of plastic.
At first we wondered where it all came from, but soon realized it had been washed up from the ocean. But if there's that much plastic in one single bay, how much is there in the rest of the ocean?
