My current adventure:
Pick up 10

This is the ‘data-revolution’ that gives us the power to confront policy makers and companies. New innovations in photo recognition make it easy, we make it fun. Picking up litter is now a call for change!

Join the movement!

The Plastic Soup Surfer fights plastic pollution using his surfboard as a weapon. His campaigns combine plastic pollution awareness with creativity, innovation and constructive calls to action.

In the spring of 2018 the Dutch parliament instated new policy that will see Deposit Fee on small plastic bottles by 2021 thus preventing tens of millions of bottles entering our environment every year. This policy was based on the ‘Plastic Soup Surfer resolution’ that was adopted a year earlier.

Let’s do something!

We are starting to drown in our plastic pollution. It is endangering all life on earth. We need to act now.

Take action!
