Today, after borrowing a Green Kayak, I collected about 6 kg of waste in 2 hours around the canals of Hamburg. Before me, there were already people going who had composed over 30 kilograms in the morning. It’s fantastic and, at the same time, unpleasantly alarming how much litter can be picked up in such a short time. But in the end, it is simply lovely to see the riverside undergrowth looking less scruffy afterwards.
Do you want to help clean the canals? Get yourself a Green Kayak for free to explore Hamburg’s waterways and nature in exchange for collecting trash.
