We are increasing our commitment for flowing waters. Running the garbage collection boat CollectiX on the river Danube is the kickoff for several events and cleanups in 2021.
Every year, around 10 million tonnes of plastic waste finds its way into our oceans. As a result, thousands upon thousands of marine animals perish. Together with Clear Rivers from Rotterdam, the Audi Environmental Foundation is committed to reducing plastic waste in waterways.
The term plogging combines the Swedish word “plocka upp” (=pick up) and “jogging.” Jogging and collecting trash. The Audi Environmental Foundation regularly organizes such cleanups.
Extracting plastic from the sea and creating new habitats for plants in the form of islands – this is the promise of an innovative project in the ports of Brussels and Rotterdam supported by the Audi Environmental Foundation.
