Individual actions

You can make a difference

Become a River Warrior!

There are many ways to take action and become part of our mission for clean rivers. 

Make a donation or organize a fundraiser

Thanks to your donation or fundraiser we can realize our mission of clean rivers worldwide. With your financial support, we set up cleanup actions, raise awareness in schools and organizations, and deploy technologies that automatically capture river waste.


Do you have a birthday soon or want to give someone an original gift? Why not donate a clean river instead of a wrapped present? For every euro you give, we can remove 1 kg of plastic from rivers. Happy (plastic) birthday!


You can also secure a plastic-free future by including River Cleanup in your will.
