Now it’s your chance to support a real change maker! RiverRecycle, a globally operating Finnish startup has decided to take the bull by the horns and fix the world’s plastic waste pollution problem with a sustainable solution.
Not only are they opening their operations in cleaning the world’s most polluted rivers of plastic waste, they are also supporting the livelihoods. This happens by offering them the guidance and tools for managing the waste and processing it to re-use with local operators.

Companies can soon buy sponsorships to enable river cleaning
Soon RiverRecycle will publish new rewards for companies, where they can purchase sponsorships for their river cleaning projects.
The companies are not only helping to fix a serious problem affecting our ecosystem, but also investing into an increasingly growing industry. RiverRecycle estimates, that the potential value of the plastic raw material is close to 900 million US dollars.
The company sponsorships enable full work days, weeks or months of river cleaning in a chosen destination in one of RiverRecycle’s projects.
In addition of supporting the actual river cleaning process, company sponsors will be shown as the official company supporters of the project. The supporting companies also gain access to RiverRecycle’s progress reports.
More details of the upcoming company rewards and what is included will be announced soon.
In the meantime, whether you want to support as a company or an individual, you can enable their river cleaning projects by contributing! In return, you’ll receive a RiverRecycle customised Eana bottle, made entirely out of recycled materials!
