Instead of sending Christmas cards, this year we are donating the money used in Christmas greetings for the protection of the Baltic Sea. One of the most serious environmental problems in the Baltic Sea is eutrophication. Eutrophication is one of the most serious environmental problems faced by the Baltic Sea. Eutrophication is caused by the excessive phosphorus and nitrogen loads in the sea. Even though eutrophicating nutrient discharges have recently been in decline, the visible signs of eutrophication, such as blue-green algae blooms, cloudy waters, slimy shores, and oxygen-depleted seabeds, still pester the Baltic Sea. Climate change further accelerates the eutrophication of the Baltic Sea.
