Our Impact

More than 40.000 kg of litter have been recovered

CLEAR RIVERS is the brand name of the Recycled Island Foundation. Although CLEAR RIVERS is new as a brand, the organization benefits from five years of experience in plastic retrieval, recycling and education. 

In the Netherlands, Belgium, Hungary, and Malaysia successful projects have been implemented with Litter Traps, Cleanups, Educational Programmes and a range of circular products developed such as Litter Traps, two floating parks, furniture, and building materials.

CLEAR RIVERS has successfully implemented 9 Litter Traps in Europe and Asia. For more information about every Litter Trap visit our Litter Trap page.


CLEAR RIVERS has successfully produced a variety of circular products. They have been made with different production techniques. Visit our Recycling Page for more information.

CLEAR RIVERS organized more than 60 Cleanups with local organizations and the local communities. 

Through the Cleanups, the river shores are cleaned and the collected plastic will be recycled. 

CLEAR RIVERS inaugurated 140 square meters of the recycled park in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and 15 square meters in Dusseldorf, Germany.

The recycled park is built with hexagonal blocks made of recycled plastic. Thanks to this innovative solution, CLEAR RIVERS is creating new, green, and sustainable areas.


CLEAR RIVERS' education and awareness program reaches more than 500 students every year. In the education program, we engage and encourage students to come up with their own ideas on how to tackle today's most pressing environmental issues.
