With plastic waste getting into the ocean at a rate of 1 garbage truck per minute and a bleak prediction of more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050, the time to act is now.
We want to find the 10 best Netherlands based startups that help replace, reduce and reuse plastic, and change consumer behaviour!
