We work towards a plastic-free sea for all!

CLEAR RIVERS is on a mission to significantly reduce the amount of plastics that enter the seas and oceans.

We found that most plastics reach the open waters through rivers. We focus on retrieving the plastics in rivers before they reach the open waters, educate about plastic pollution and recycle the retrieved plastics into new and durable products.

Our Approach

CLEAR RIVERS has an international all-inclusive approach with five core elements.

Not for profit

CLEAR RIVERS is a Not for profit organization registered as a brand name of the Recycled Island Foundation (RIF).

Recycled Island Foundation (and CLEAR RIVERS) are registered at the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KvK) under the number: KvK 61045225 and RSIN: 854179951

The Recycled Island Foundation has the ANBI-status, also known as a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO).

RIFs efforts are almost entirely committed to the public benefit. To be qualified as an ANBI, RIF meets all conditions formulated in the policy plan.
