On Saturday June 24th Charlotte and Tatjana -founders of Wahine Surfwear®- joined a group of 600 volunteers in an effort to clean up part of the Dutch coastline between Scheveningen and Zandvoort.
The Beach Cleanup was part of the campaign #STOPMETPLASTIC. With this campaign National Geographic hopes to create more awareness the plastic waste problem we face. The Dutch coastline has an average of 120 kilos of trash per kilometer, making it clear that even here in the Netherlands we have a serious problem with plastic waste.
During this 2018 Beach Cleanup a team of 600 volunteers picked up over 3000 kilos(!) of plastic waste from the beaches between coastal cities Scheveningen and Zandvoort. We have collected different types of plastic waste, ranging from fishing nets, straws, balloons and plastic bottles to pieces of microplastic. We are so proud of this amazing achievement!
