Fjord Clean Up

How to get involved?

We run the “fjord clean up” every week in two locations:

 

Aker Brygge / Tjuvholmen and Bjorvika, in partnership with Oslo Badstuforening. It’s by far the most regular and popular voluntary clean up event on the inner Oslo Fjord and we have big dreams to develop it much further – so stay tuned!

Everyone who joins our clean up gets a free sauna at our floating fjord spa in Aker Brygge afterwards, and hopefully soon we will get food sponsored for the participants too.

We love Oslo Fjord and want to keep it clean so everyone can enjoy it!

How did The Fjord Clean Up begin?

The Fjord Clean up started over 5 years ago when we decided to pick up trash while kayaking down Akerselva with our kayak company, Mad Goats. Once starting, there was no turning back, so we started giving away free kayak trips to people willing to pick up rubbish on their way down Akerselva. The next step was to start organizing voluntary trips, where the only focus was to clean up the river & Oslo Fjord.

Over the years, we have partnered with Rusken, Oslo Kommune, Hold Norge Rent, Oslo Badstuforening, Passion for Ocean and many other likeminded organizations on various events.

In 2019, the year we started GreenBoats in Aker Brygge, we realized that we had a new location we could start cleaning, and also more means to access larger quantities of marine litter: boat, diving and stand up paddling. After consistently cleaning up every week since early Spring, the Fjord Clean up has naturally developed and grown in popularity. We have given people a way they can contribute, an event they can rely on, and have shown our commitment to clean, no matter the season, no matter the weather.

The next step for us is to get a specially designed cleaning boat and start scuba diving, so we can pick up larger quantities of ocean trash, and expand our area of cleaning – lets go!
