... and become a hero!


Thanks to the River Cleanup Challenge you can make a difference for our planet. Are you in? It consists of 3 simple steps:

1. Take a pair of gloves and a bag


2. Go outside and spend 10 minutes cleaning up litter in your neighborhood


3. Share your hero photo on social media and challenge 3 friends to do the same


Don't forget the hashtag #rivercleanupchallenge and tag @rivercleanup.


Take on the challenge between the 22nd of April (Earth Day) and the 8th of June (World Ocean Day). The perfect time to take action!


If you're from Belgium, you can even join the kick-off! On the 22nd of April, everyone is welcome at the River Cleanup Challenge launch in Antwerp. You can get material, do the challenge and win a fun weekend away with Slow Cabins! 

Why participate?

Every year, 11 billion kgs of plastic enters our oceans. A large part of that ends up there through rivers. One of the best ways to stop this, is to get as many people as possible involved in avoiding and cleaning up waste. The simple act of cleaning up trash that is not yours, makes you aware of the problem and part of the solution. The challenge gives everyone the opportunity to have direct impact through a fun and easy activity!

Will you be our next hero?
