Pick up tons of trash along the coastline

Twenty volunteers from the voluntary organization SEEDS, the Blue Army, employees of several companies and embassy representatives collected about 700 kilos of plastic waste on the coastline from Herdísarvík to Viðarhellir.

The group has recently gone on daily cleaning trips on this fifteen kilometer section near Selvogsvita, Strandakirkja and Þorlákshöfn. About six tons of litter, mostly plastic, have been removed from the beach, according to Oscar Uscategui at SEEDS.
