The Journey of Trash-Tiki

Trash-Tiki is made out of plastic waste, ghost net and driftwood found in the Baltic Sea. Trash-Tiki left the shores in the evening of Sweden on Friday 29th of June to sail 90 nm in rough conditions with winds of up to 20 knots (10m/s).
Onboard there were the experienced adventurers Sören Kjellqvist, Glenn Mattsing and Joakim Odelberg.

Bringing awareness to the politicians

With a speed of only 0,5 knots, they made great progress, taking shifts sailing the raft with the wind for 4 days, heading in a southerly direction to the largest island off the coast of Sweden, Gotland where a big political meeting was taking place.
The Norwegian investor, hotel magnate and environmentalist Petter Stordalen joined the guys on the raft off the coast of Visby to guide Trash-Tiki into port.

Saving the Oceans from plastic

Trash-Tiki comes with a strong message to the politicians to put a global focus on our ocean and marine resources. We are proud to support this great initiative and we hope the politicians will do their job to help raise awareness to reduce the use of disposable plastic so we can together save our oceans for future generations.All images © Trash-Tiki.
