Impact of this experience
Your participation makes a difference, you will help clean the water canals in Amsterdam.
Plastic waste is a growing, worldwide problem. Part of the problem is that people perceive plastic as a valueless disposable product. Use it once and then chuck it away! We wants to tackle this problem by showing people that plastic is not waste, but valuable raw material. That’s why we build beautiful design boats from plastic that we fish out the water.
Inspire others to do the same in their community or wherever you go! Appreciate your plastic goods!

We’ve partnered with the first professional plastic fishing company in the world. A social enterprise with a clear mission: to make the world’s waters plastic-free and create value from plastic waste.

It started with a single challenge to build a boat made of plastic waste. Today, they have a fleet of eleven boats made from Amsterdam Canal Plastic. Their goal is really to go ‘out of business’: overfishing in this case is positive! With your boat crew, you can make a difference. Explore the city through a different and proactive perspective on the canals of Amsterdam and come plastic fishing with us!

Help make Amsterdam’s canals plastic-free and join us for a two and a half hour plastic fishing adventure. While cleaning up the canals, you get to see the historical center with its many highlights from a unique perspective: the water. Your guide will gladly tell you all about it!
During winter we offer blankets to keep you warm while enjoying Amsterdam's beautiful winter sights and lights!

The plastic we collect together with you is recycled to create plastic boats—the same kind of boats that we use during the experience. We also make pretty cool furniture out of the canal plastic!
