The Arctic is under pressure from oil companies seeking to exploit its fossil resources. They see the melting of the sea ice, not as a warning, but as a business opportunity. Take a journey into the arctic and explore for yourself its natural wonders, the threat of the encroaching oil industry, and follow the struggle to save the Arctic.

Greeenpeace has asked the guys of Hello Monday to create this impressive website, “Into the Arctic“, to warn us about the situation the Arctic is currently living debt in big part to oil companies. The eloquent voiceover, the soundrack, accompanied by spectacular images, awakes our interest and invites us to action, unless we want to see the Arctic disappear in a few years’ time.
