Citizens & Living
Projects

To keep Amsterdam liveable the municipality collaborates with its citizens. On average Amsterdam’s population grows with 10.000 people a year. This small big city has a density of 5065 people per square km, over 180 different nationalities. 19% of the total Dutch GDP is earned in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. Between 2015 and 2016, the amount of tourists in Amsterdam increased by 7%. To keep Amsterdam’s 162 canals, monumental centre and residential areas liveable, innovative initiatives are required.

BinStrap - Keeping the lid on Rubbish!

Litter Pollution is a huge threat to our planet. 8 Million Tonnes of rubbish are getting into our Rivers and Oceans every year and 80% of the Oceans pollution comes from land. This is having a devastating effect on Wildlife and Marine life who get tangled up in litter or ingest rubbish thinking it is food and end up starving to death as their passageways are blocked.

There are over One Billion wheelie bins in use worldwide, securing these would Massively reduce the amount of unnecessary litter in our environment and oceans!
