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.
