Surfing the plastic soup for real solutions on land

Stop pollution at the source!

Taking action

Petition Kick-off record attempt on board from plastic bottles

Public campaigns

We need to close the tap on plastic. The plastic soup problem does not start in the oceans or in the rivers; it starts on land. So solutions should be found on land. We need to go 'Plastic Smart'. We need to step away from our 'throw away' culture and change to 'alternative behaviour' made possible by companies and backed politicians.

But were not going to wait...  Join us in Operation #Knetterbal now!

Organizing vision

To make the plastic transition happen we need the public to speak out. We are uniting the community of 'Grass Roots' plastic-warriors to grow our influence. We organise conferences and campaigns, we make documentaries, give presentations regularly and keep the community updated on whats happening in the world of plastic through our 'Plastic Soup Surfer' YouTube Channel.

Dialogue and presentations

Regular meetings with legislators and companies, frequently giving talks and showing our films enables us to influence the public debate on plastic. Organise a screening of one of our films or Invite the Plastic Soup Surfer for the future vision on plastics. Plastics is tangible and that makes change visible.
