Last week CLEAR RIVERS officially finalized the agreement with Coastal Conservancy Organisation (CCO).

The objective of the MoU is to express the willingness of CLEAR RIVERS (CR) and Coastal Conservancy Organisation (CCO) in a partnership to carry out land-based ocean-bound debris clean-up operations in selected environs in Ghana."

CCO is very excited and happy about the collaboration with CLEAR RIVERS and the impact expected to be made with regard to prevention, recovery and harvesting of land-based ocean-bound plastics (debris) from flowing into the sea and polluting the ocean.

We can’t wait to start new exciting projects in Ghana.

Since last year, we have a Good #collaboration with The Good Floor!

They #recycle some of the single use #plastics that we find on our Litter Traps in Rotterdam.

Thank you The Good Floor for The Good Film!

" From retrieving plastics through the @_clearrivers_ litter traps, to shredding the plastic waste in @the_good_floor hub and then creating durable and sustainable flooring concepts that can be fully customized. This film perfectly demostrates how we work together to strive towards a clean environment.

Our partner @_clearrivers_ provides us with the plastics collected in their litter traps, it is then cleaned and sorted by material and color, and locally ground into small granule pellets in our hub at the Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam.

''What makes our floors so special is our use of materials ordinarily collected by waste services, to ultimately be incinerated. So we're basically upcycling the material by giving it a second life'' - Mark Roderick Schothorst, founder of The Good Floor.

In this film, we take you along to the newly renovated office of Buro Boot, who have prioritized the use of sustainable materials and designs. Interior architect Susanne Bakkenist (@spacemonkey_susannebakkenist) was involved in the custom design for Buro Boot, which resulted in a unique Confetti pattern and a Sea Blue floor.

Last week we were with the WaterManagement #students of Hogeschool Rotterdam.

First, we were at BlueCity (010) to talk about the water management in Rotterdam and different #plastic projects. We presented CLEAR RIVERS, to explain why it is important to act, to show what we do and how our Litter Traps work.

Then, the students came at CLEAR RIVERS' office to show the projects in real-life. We showed one of our Litter #Traps, the Recycled Park and various products that we made from #recycled plastics.

We are honored to have been involved in the beginning of this school project with Maaike De Waele.
