The Blue Army – keep iceland clean

Since the start in 1995, the environmental organisation The Blue Army has been one of the driving forces behind cleaning Iceland’s coasts and harbours. More than 65,000 hours have been spent on more than 200 projects involving 6,000 volunteers removing 1,425 tonnes of waste from the Icelandic nature. The Blue Army was nominated along with Landvernd for the Nordic Council Environment Prize in 2018 for its nationwide “Keep Iceland Clean” project, which organised more than 100 beach cleaning events. The members of The Blue Army focus on the plastics in the oceans.
