River Cleanup World – on a mission to clean rivers. Thomas de Groote, Belgium

Every year over 8 billion kgs of plastic trash enter our oceans! 80% comes there via rivers. River Cleanup activates people to take action and deploys smart technology to stop plastic from reaching our oceans. Our story started with a 10 minutes cleanup in 2017 and up to now over 100.000 people took action along 161 rivers in 45 countries. Our goal in 2021 is to collect and recycle 1.000.000kg of river plastics! Discover how you can become a River Warrior and how we can free our rivers and river banks from waste together.
