The mission of Plastic Soup Foundation is: ‘No plastic waste in our water!’
We do not take plastic out of the water; instead, we want to put an end to the increasing amount of plastic polluting the ocean by tackling the issue at its sources. Think of microplastics in cosmetics or synthetic fibres from clothing. These all end up in the ocean one way or another. This is the goal since 2011 of the Plastic Soup Foundation.
The Plastic Soup Foundation constantly draws attention to plastic soup through campaigns, news articles, social media and educational programs.
Maria Westerbos, the founder and director of the Plastic Soup Foundation will tell us a lot more about it during the first Prix Voltaire International on the 9th of November 2018.
