Take part in our ‘Plastic Waste Fishing’ activity. Per year, in the Netherlands alone, approximately 50 million kilos of waste end up on the street, the beach or in nature. All this garbage can be carried to the sea, as a consequence of weather conditions such as the wind, or through the stream of rivers. This waste includes plastic bottles and trays, but also small litter such as balloons, cigarette butts, candy wrappers, caps, straws and the like. These plastics and also microplastics are also called plastic soup. Plastic does not belong in the sea and waters. Birds, fish, dolphins and seals mistake it for food and eat it. Or they get caught in it. And in the end, we as humans consume it again, at least if you like fish and duck, for example.
Help nature and choose a sustainable company outing by fishing plastic waste. We can fish plastic waste in ditches, canals, ponds, tours, puddles, lakes, at sea and so on. Depending on the desired region, possibilities and group size, we will fish along the side or we will sail on a boat. Of course we ensure that we there will be enough materials (nets, gloves and waste bags).
Our sustainable company outing ‘’fishing plastic waste’’ = a contribution to society and nature. It promotes goodwill, strengthens your image and you get committed employees and a nice day in return!
Tip: This outing can also be combined with our iPad Teambuilding Challenge. Teams each get an iPad, while on the road or on a boat. Along the way, the teams receive photo assignments, challenging puzzles, and various questions about the environment and CSR (teambuilding). In between, team members will fish plastic soup (social). The team that has collected the most points on the iPad and fished the largest volume of plastic waste will receive a nice prize!
