Mug called Our Coast was launched in 2016 and it was the second mug specifically designed for the Keep Sweden Clean / Håll Sverige Rent -foundation. The mug is also known as the HSR2. In the 1970s Tove and Lars Jansson illustrated several Moomin posters to the campaign for saving the Baltic Sea. The images in the mug are naturally from one of these posters designed by the Janssons. Tove Slotte, a pattern designer at Arabia, adjusted the images to fit the mug. The mug was sold in Sweden and exceptionally and exclusively in Moomin Shops in Helsinki and in the moomin.com online store.
