Waste picking as adventure

An inspirational initative for clean waters

PLASTIC CUP

The waste pollution on river Tisza is a huge environmental problem! The PLASTIC Cup, this non-profit, non-governmental initiative, was created to eliminate this problem. This environmental action contributes to clean river Tisza by organizing events, waste collection campaigns spanning several months, team-building activities, exhibitions and professional discussions throughout the year. Our three main goals: conservation of living waters, water sports promotion (kayaking, canoeing) and community building.
