Social enterprise Plastic Whale says it is ‘the first professional plastic fishing company in the world’, with the goal to eradicate plastic from seas, canals and rivers and create value from plastic waste.  Plastic Whale organises mass clean-ups that are attended by hundreds of people in fishing boats armed with nets; these join the organisation’s own fleet in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.  Once these Dutch ports have been cleared of plastic, the intention is to go further afield.

It recently started working in Bangalore, India to collect and recycle plastic waste.  It also sells furniture made from recycled waste, which helps fund its work.

Type of organisation: Plastic Whale helps fund the Plastic Whale Foundation
