Plastic Soup Foundation
NO PLASTIC WASTE IN OUR WATER!
That is the mission of the in 2011 founded Dutch Plastic Soup Foundation. According to the international press, we are now ‘One of the leading advocacy groups to tackle plastic pollution.’ We do not get plastic out of the water. We want to put an end to the increasing pollution of the seas and oceans with plastics. We want to prevent even more plastics entering the sea in the future. For that, we have the following strategy:
Be aware: The Plastic Soup Foundation constantly draws attention to plastic soup through campaigns, news articles and social media.
Get educated: Anyone who wants to find out more about plastic soup is in the right place when they come to us. For instance, the Plastic Soup Foundation develops educational programs for primary schools and secondary schools.
Find solutions: The Plastic Soup Foundation stimulates all possible (innovative) solutions, which help tackle the causes of plastic soup at source. Measures, which prevent plastic entering the environment, water and eventually ending up in the sea, have the greatest impact in our opinion.

The global efforts are not going to be sufficient to keep global warming and its dramatic effects – such as spread of infectious diseases like dengue fever, more frequent and stronger floods and droughts – under control. Global emissions must peak at the latest by 2020 and the excess carbon dioxide must be removed from the atmosphere now. A simple solution exists that will buy us time until a low carbon economy is available everywhere. Healthy and growing forests remain the best technology for removing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Our vision is a world where communities and nations sustainably manage forest landscapes and natural resources to address climate change, enhance livelihoods, increase resilience and safeguard biodiversity.
Our mission is to advance innovative, scalable and lasting solutions to restore forest landscapes for climate, people and planet.
Our values: integrity. Transparency. Teamwork.
Our goal is to make sure forest landscape restoration best practices, tools and supportive policies are being effectively used to deliver globally agreed targets.
