Plastic Whale: Fishing for Plastic in Amsterdam

In Amsterdam, you can go fishing… For plastic! Our waterways are choking with so much trash. Even the birds are building their nests out of it. But Plastic Whale is on a mission to clean up Amsterdam’s canals.

Volunteers go “plastic fishing” with nets and collect the garbage from the canals before it can break down into microplastics or make it out to the ocean. But they don’t just throw the plastic out. Their boats are made of plastic bottles. They’ve already made 9 boats! And they plan to make more.
