2023 has brought us not only exciting new projects that have expanded our team's horizons but also the opportunity to welcome three exceptional individuals who have recently joined our team. These new additions light up our office with their fresh perspectives, enthusiasm, and shared commitment to making a positive impact on the world.

Meet Fanny D, a creative professional who is playing a vital role in our Communications efforts.

"Hello, my name is Fanny and I’m French. I’m currently in my fourth year of communication studies at Iscom Lille. What I like about working at Clear Rivers is combining my passion for creating engaging content and contributing to meaningful work".

Now, let's turn our attention to Lennart, who takes the helm of our Litter Trap innovation.

"I’m Lennart, I study delta management, a subcategory of water management, at the Hoge school Zeeland. In my spare time, I like to hang out with friends, play games, and ride a motorcycle".

Last but certainly not least, we are thrilled to introduce Louise Deneuter, our Project Assistant who is actively contributing to the plastic recycling process.

"My name is Louise Deneuter, and I am currently graduating in Environmental Sciences. I am working for CLEAR RIVERS to improve circularity by researching the recycling of our river plastics. In my free time, I enjoy painting and going to museums, so being able to get creative with the river plastics fits right up my alley!"

As our team grows and new perspectives are brought to the table, we are filled with excitement and optimism about what lies ahead for CLEAR RIVERS.

We recently concluded another one of our educational projects! This time, we had the privilege of working alongside 80 pupils who provided invaluable support in the development of a remote-controlled retrieval device for floating litter. Their remarkable enthusiasm and dedication throughout the project were truly inspiring.

We are thrilled to showcase some of the brilliant ideas and innovative solutions that these pupils brought to the table. In the gallery below, you'll find a collection of images highlighting the remarkable progress we made together.

Education is key in CLEAR RIVERS comprehensive approach to plastic pollution. By collaborating with pupils, students and teachers we create awareness, educate new professionals and gain new innovative ideas. This project served as a prime example of our collaborative efforts to educate, inspire, and empower young minds.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every pupil who contributed their time, energy, and enthusiasm to this project. Together, we are taking important steps towards preventing plastic waste from polluting our seas and oceans.

Many thanks to Johannes Fontanus College, Hogeschool Rotterdam, RDM Rotterdam !
