Recycled Island Foundation


The Recycled Island Foundation makes proposals how to deal with plastic pollution and climate change. From our Rotterdam office we work on the prevention, awareness, education, retrieval and re-use of marine litter. Our key projects are currently our litter traps, to retrieve marine debris, and Recycled Park. Our litter traps and floating parks are made of recycled plastics. The litter traps retrieve plastics from rivers in multiple countries, just before it reaches sea. The plastics are recycled to give new value to the river. From the plastics we construct floating platforms for a new green environment; a floating park. Recycled Park is realized in Rotterdam. After this successful implementation we are introducing this approach in more rivers and harbours worldwide.
