Borrow a kayak for free and help keeping Copenhagen’s waters clean.
Copenhagen is renowned for its harbour which is clean enough for you to swim in it. The non-profil initiative GreenKayak wants to keep it that way and encourage Copenhageners and tourists to contribute by lending out kayaks for free. Part of the deal is that you collect trash in the attached bucket, weigh it when returning and post a pic on social media. This way, GreenKayak – and you – make a difference.
And remember: No piece of trash is too small and despite being clean compared to most (or any other) metropolitan harbours, waste can be collected in many places and nooks in the area and the waste bucket can quickly be filled.
Kayak Republic involved in the initiative and are happy to host you at their harbour front Kayak Bar for a well-deserved drink or some food after your effort.
In the summer of 2020, GreenKayak launched their concept at one of Copenhagen's central lakes, Peblingesø, right by the popular Dronning Louise's Bridge.
