We clean the Ruhr

on September 12th

What we do?

Every year vast amounts of trash reach the oceans. Million tons of plastic pollute our nature. Most of it reaches the oceans via the rivers, particularly in Asia, but also in Europe. We have to prevent this from happening!

We clean the Ruhr from source to ending. 

Together with our partners we want to free the riverside of the Ruhr from trash. We aim to build and raise awareness among people not to throw trash away without thinking of the consequences for our rivers, oceans and our nature at large.
