My current adventure:
Plastic Avengers Manifest

These 5 directives are essential to anyone - individual, NGO, company or legislator - that wants to practically and effectively fight plastic pollution. To really stop the flow of plastic entering our ocean we need to change our attitude towards plastic!

Support the manifest!

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!
