Cleaning up Arctic Island

Cleaning up Arctic Island – Yep you heard it, there is garbage even on untouched Arctic (not so untouched actually)…however the good news is they are cleaining it up! Now this island “Belyi” (“White”) has the status of a national park, however since the 1930s it was continuously cluttered with the stuff that was brought here from the “Big Earth”. As the island is far to the North, inside of the polar circle, everything gets imported here, including fuel in large metal barrels and things like that. There is lots of stuff to clear up, and here come the volunteers. Actually, the volunteering culture is something pretty new for the country, however here they are. See what it was like to clean a polar island of things that had been brought there for years.

Nice polar summer landscapes, fogs, grass and +10 degrees centigrade.

Actually considering you get a trip to Arctic with your best friends, suddenly it isn’t so bad to volunteer and to clear garbage after all!

What do you think?
