Take Action to fight Plastic Pollution

The problem of riverine plastic pollution is universal: plastic debris will be transported by rivers, crossing national and political borders, before reaching our ocean.

Yet few are stepping up to own the problem.

Four ways to protect rivers and oceans from plastic pollution

Our rivers function as highways transporting plastic to the ocean. There is an urgent need for measures to stop plastic in its tracks. We share four ways how a Bubble Barrier makes an impact:

1. Catching river plastics

A Bubble Barrier means you can tackle the problem of plastic pollution locally. You will be catching plastic that can be seen on the water surface, but also plastic that is below the surface since our Bubble Barrier covers the full width and depth of the river. By catching plastic in your local river, you will be at the forefront of fighting plastic pollution.

2. Raising awareness

Tackling plastic pollution locally via a Bubble Barrier helps raise awareness of the problem. Most plastic debris is under water. With a Bubble Barrier, debris is brought to the surface and trapped in the catchment system, strengthening the understanding on the amount to be found in our rivers. Your Bubble Barrier will become an education point for the (local) community.

Check how your community can take action.

3. Monitoring the catch

Research on the amount, brands and types of plastic helps to address the problem close to the source. Understanding the cause of the problem can stimulate new policies concerning plastic pollution.

4. River waste management

Together with our local partners, we look for ways to return the collected plastic to market and connect our Bubble Barrier to a circular economy.

We are constantly looking for opportunities to re-use our collected waste. Are you a recycling company or do you have a great recycling idea for trapped waste? Reach out to us!
