About

Who am i?

I am 25 year old Law student from Norway with a passion for the environment and the ocean.

What is my project?

There are 100 million tons of plastic in the ocean and it's estimated that another 8 million ton of plastic get dumped in the ocean every year. Which have caused five major gyres of plastic in the ocean.

The impact plastic has on the wildlife in the ocean is devistating.

What is exxpedition?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnNZj4cEunE

eXXpedition is a series of all women voyages to make the unseen seen, from the toxics in our bodies to the toxics in our seas. On the 16th of November 2014 eXXpedition launched the first mission with a crew of 14 women setting sail across the Atlantic Ocean in search of answers relating to the health of our environment and to the health of our bodies.

During an eXXpedition voyage environmental samples are collected to assess plastic and pollutants, feeding in these samples to wider studies investigating the impacts of toxics and plastics pollutants and linking this sampling to narratives of ecosystem health, personal health and the products we consume.

The eXXpedition crew also participate in biomonitoring with the UN founded initiative ‘Safe Planet‘ to assess personal exposure to known toxic substances. Through personal exploration of our internal environment(MeSearch) the aim is to better understand the levels of toxic exposure in women.
