We did our part today for the International Coastal Cleanup Day at the North Sea! 30kg of litter has been picked up from the beach in 1 hour. And the catch of the day… we even found some shark egg capsules!

Saturday September 16th was the International Coastal Cleanup Day run by the Ocean Conservancy. Today, there were beach clean-ups organized all over the world. Millions of volunteers cleaned a beach in their neighbourhood to help the Ocean Conservancy to get insights into ocean pollution. 12 million people have been apart of this project in the past and we were very proud to take action too together with volunteers from Ghost Fishing and Green Bubbles.
