Sustainable Travel


  • Main problem:
  • Subproblem:
    Environmental Pollution of the sea, rivers and ports
  • Consequence:
    Need for environmental protection
  • Solution:
    Engaging people to collect trash and having fun at th same time
  • Spend your time on the water collecting waste.
  • Share this experience on your social media using #GreenKayak.

We engage people at eye-level, connect them across generations and give them the feeling of being in the same boat around a good cause. Everyone can make a difference! GreenKayak is not the solution that will save the oceans from plastic pollution but GreenKayak is an amazing and very effective way to make citizens take local action, connect themselves and their friends to the ocean and have a dialogue about what it will take of all of us to battle plastic pollution in the sea. Our GreenKayaks hold two people. They’re stable and safe – you don’t need any previous kayaking experience. We give you life jackets and all the other gear you need to paddle and pick up waste. We are building a global network of GreenKayaks to engage as many people as possible. Since 2017, several thousand volunteers have paddled GreenKayaks in the harbors, rivers, and lakes of five European countries, and collected almost 25 tons of trash. We also have a mobile fleet of 10 GreenKayaks that we use to do activations and events with school kids and other groups. We share our knowledge of grassroots engagement with institutions like the European Environmental Agency and other NGOs. Join us! Together, we paddle for the oceans!
