What you'll do
Help make Amsterdam’s canals plastic-free and join us for a two hour plastic fishing adventure. While cleaning up the canals, you get to see the historical center with its many highlights from a unique perspective: the water. Our skipper will gladly tell you about it. During winter time, we also offer enough blankets and tea to keep you warm while enjoying Amsterdam's beautiful winter sights and lights! The plastic we collect together with you is recycled into Plastic Whale boats—the same kind of boats that we use during this experience. And did you know that we're also making furniture out of Amsterdam Canal Plastic? P.S.: A lot of people like to write about this experience. In some cases, we invite press to go plastic fishing together with you or to make some photos. If you don't feel comfortable with this, please let us know by sending us a message!
Plastic Whale is a social enterprise with a mission: to make the world’s waters plastic-free by creating value from plastic waste. We want to involve as many people as possible in our mission. The more people get involved, the bigger impact we can make together.
About the organisation
Plastic Whale is the first professional plastic fishing company in the world. It started in 2011 with a single challenge to build a boat made of plastic waste. Today, we have a fleet of ten design boats made from Amsterdam Canal Plastic. It is our goal to go ‘out of business’: overfishing is a positive phenomenon in our case.
This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Plastic Whale.
