Paddle for Life

In October 2012 we started a collaboration with the Swedish company Paddla för Livet (Paddle for Life) to further develop ways to actively work for a cleaner Baltic Sea. The core activity of this company is to collect trash in Nordic European waters through Eco-friendly methods such as kayaking and free diving. They want to inspire people and increase the interest for environmental work by combining outdoor sports with collecting trash. Their work include:

  • organizing expeditions to collect and recycle garbage
  • collaborate with researchers working with the effects of trash in the Sea
  • operate a Guide Agency in order to increase the interest for outdoor life and nature. They give guided tours, courses and private lessons.
  • give lectures at municipalities, schools and companies on their activity and environmental efforts
  • offer the « Kilogram », a diploma certifying a person’s payment of » X » kg trash collected
  • « Like » their facebook site and one kg of trash will be collected for free facebook-logga twitter-logga

Studio B3

Our products are featured in this Showroom for leading Swedish interior decoration and design companies. These companies are working with public places and private homes.


We exchange information with Skärgårdsbryggan. It is the leading on-line newspaper about the Swedish East Coast Archipelaco. It is a forum that is updated daily for all topics concerning life along the coastlines and on the islands of the Baltic Sea.

Baltic Sea Now Info

We exchange information and collaborate with the Baltic Sea Now Info project. Our common goal is to enhance the environmental consciousness and activate citizens to get involved in the future health of the Baltic Sea. BSNI provides information on the Baltic Sea, its problems and possibilities, organizes events, web-forums, exhibitions etc.

The project is led by the Turku University of Applied Sciences in Finland and is carried out by 6 units (universities, organizations and companies) in Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Sweden. The project is funded through EU Central Baltic Interreg IVA 2007-2013 Programme and the European Union European Regional Development Fund. More here

Peeter Vissak

In January 2011 we initiated a collaboration with the Estonian biologist and geobotanist Peeter Vissak. Our common goal is to help protect and spread knowledge on the protected areas on and around several of the Estonian islands. These have a vital importance for a number of Baltic Sea birds that reproduce or stop here during their migrations. A part of our gains will go towards his work.
Vissak has worked with Nature Reserves in several different aspects; as a Manager, Scientific Re- searcher, Guide etc. He is also a Nature Photographer. More on his work here.
