During a meeting with Rick Basten from Staatsbosbeheer we decided to work together during the big waste cleaning action, april 4 and 5, in the national park alongside the river Waal. For the last nine years they are cleaning up the area with the help of schoolkids. This year Stiksoep will join their action and will provide extra information to the kids about the plastic soup. Last year about 500 kids joined this cleaning action. Maybe we can use the found bottles for the community art program Turtle which takes place in July during the Fourdayswalk fests.
Staatsbosbeheer is commissioned by the Dutch government and manages a sizeable amount of the nature reserves in the Netherlands.
