Garbage in the Subarctic – Lofoten
Ocean currents bring plastic garbage even into the pristine Arctic. Apart from killing countless lifeforms, plastics contaminate the food chain with toxins, inevitably ending on our dinner plates.
“My life is a congregation of compromises but always centers on nature and its conservation. Nature is my life, my joy, my adventure. I just hope that, one day, I will find a way to give something back to nature for all it gave to me, and what I´m so very grateful for.”
