Let's clean our rivers on World Cleanup Day

September 19 - 20 - 26 - 27 Kilogramm Müll gelangen jährlich in die Meere. 80 Prozent kommen aus den Flüssen.

Wir wollen das ändern. Gemeinsam organisieren wir Cleanups an den Ufern, steigern die Achtsamkeit und leiten den Wandel ein.

Mach mit!

Our approach


First objective is to clean it up and make people aware of the problem by showing them trash can be found, in and around the river where they grew up, live or work. In addition, we deploy smart technologies in rivers to continuously collect trash and stop the inflow in our oceans.


Second aim is to educate and inspire students from elementary school to universities on the issue and allow them to have the same eye-opening experience while picking up trash for the first time.


We organize teambuilding cleanups combined with workshops on how to reduce the use of single-use items at home, at work and in society. Doing so we create a network of organizations, scientists & researchers, businesses and policy makers in order to create cross-border solutions.
