TRASH-TIKI is now set up on display at Skansen in Stockholm at the exhibition “Havet-i-fokus” with one of the crew memebers, Glenn Mattsing.

All images below are from their 4 day sail with the raft Trash-Tiki from last year to the political meeting, Almedalen outside the coast of Sweden to deliver a message to the politicians to put a global focus on our ocean and marine resources.

This is the raft Trash-Tiki made of plastic waste, ghost net and driftwood found in the Baltic Sea.

Trash-Tiki left the shores of Sweden in June 2018 to sail 90 nm in rough conditions with winds of up to 20 knots (10m/s).

On board there were the experienced adventurers Sören Kjellqvist, Glenn Mattsing and Joakim Odelberg.

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 southerly direction to the largest island off the coast of Sweden, Gotland where a big political meeting is taking place every year.

The Norwegian investor, hotel magnate and environmentalist Petter Stordalen joined the guys on the raft off the coast of Visby to guide Trash-Tiki in to port.

Trash-Tiki came 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.
