Marius Smit, Founder of Plastic Whale
Ready for yet another first? Plastic Whale is the FIRST professional plastic fishing company in the world. A social enterprise with a mission: make the world’s waters plastic-free and create value from plastic waste. It started five years ago with a single challenge to build a boat made of plastic waste. Today, Plastic Whale has a fleet of six design boats made from Amsterdam Canal Plastic. It is their stated goal to go ‘out of business’. Overfishing is a positive phenomenon in their case. And with this show comes an invitation: They are looking for teams, departments or companies to help them achieve their goal and come plasticfishing with them on the canals of Amsterdam or at the Rotterdam harbour! Mrs. Green goes to sea? Let’s “see” where all this takes us – yet another excellent adventure. This show made possible due to the generous support of the Habitat for Humanity.
