Plastic Whale - 2014

The Plastic Soup is a fast growing issue. Seas, lakes, rivers and even Amsterdam's canals are getting increasingly poluted because of plastc trash. Plastic Whale creates awareness for this problem, but also aims to look for solutions. It engages cosumers, companies and authorities in working together towards cleaners waters. Therefore, Plastic Whale starts in its own back yard.

Plastic Whale believes that part of the solution lies in the fact that people perceive plastc as waste. It therefore wants to create value out of trash. It has organised a yearly event where people are encouraged to get on a boat in the canals of Amsterdam and "fish" for plastic. Hundreds of people participated. Plastic Whale has collected the plastic from the canals and has worked for the last year to recycle this plastic into a boat. This boat was presented at the HISWA boat show on March 5th 2014. The presentation was the kick-off of the first Plastic Fishing Company, which will invite people to join on the recycled boat to collect plastic for commercial use.

The Fred Foundation contributed to the design and building of the boat.
