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.
A PET Kupa ötletgazdája a Természetfilm.hu Egyesület, ami több mint 20 éve foglalkozik természetvédelmi és környezetvédelmi filmek készítésével. A PET Kupa 2013-ban indult útjára, azóta több órányi televíziós ismeretterjesztő film és internetes videó készült a kezdeményezésről. Ezeknek a mozgóképes szemléltető anyagoknak óriási szerepe volt és van abban, hogy a PET Kupa ilyen rövid idő alatt ilyen sok emberhez juttatta el az üzenetet: a Tisza segítségre szorul. A hagyományokhoz híven az Természetfilm.hu minden évben forgatócsoportot küld a Tiszára és folytatja a filmezést.
After heaps of pollution and flood, Subcarpathia has at last announced long anticipated news: a plastic processing plant opened in Uzhhorod with the goal of processing plastic bottles and widely increasing their selective collection.

Coca-Cola Hungary’s environmental protection CSR program, the Zero Waste Tisza has won the International Public Relations Association’s award: the program launched to clean River Tisza and its surrounding has earned the prestigious award in two categories.
Water experts and professionals of the PET Cup – the latter awarded with the Curator Prize at the latest Highlights of Hungary – intend to clean a Natura 2000 floodplain forest area between 28 February and 1 March.
Owing to the financial support of the International Investment Bank, the Plastic Cup is starting an expedition along the full length of the Tisza as part of the CLEAN WATER, HAPPY TISZA programme. The experts of the Plastic Cup are going to measure the most polluted areas with the help of volunteers, waste management experts and researchers.
The three-party collaboration announced in mid-July by Plastic Cup, the General Directorate of Water Management and Coca-Cola has been closed with the stopping, removal and recycling of 10 000 tonnes of waste and drift wood collected at the Kisköre Dam.
