Optimist for the Sea

In the project “Optimist for the Sea”, young sailors collect plastic from the sea, which is then turned into new dinghies. There is an estimated 150 million tonnes of plastic in the oceans – mostly disposable products. “Optimist for the Sea” is aimed at 9–12-year-olds and a collaboration between the Swedish Sailing Federation, the Keep Sweden Tidy Foundation and the Swedish Sea Rescue Society, with funding from Postkodlotteriet.
