A few years ago, Marius Smit wanted to do something to fight the ‘plastic soup’ in our water. He had the fantastic idea to make a boat from the plastic waste in the Amsterdam canals. There was no doubt that we had to be a part of this.
By inspiring a positive movement based on creativity and entrepreneurship, the foundation has become a social enterprise. They now own seven sponsored boats in the Amsterdam canals and a franchise in Rotterdam that can be hired to fish for plastic.
