Two years ago, I, Rosa Leijdekkers, started asking people to go on a trashdate with me, because I thought it would be easier to do something about the pollution problem if it was fun and done together. After this, I organised events on a regular base, to bring people together, have fun, and clean up the area. Right now we have launched a website for people who would like to do something, make an impact, and meet like minded people. With this, we aim to create a ripple effect, because when many people unite to make a stand to solve a problem, they will. We now are an organisation with 5 volunteers and would like to build a much larger community to spread our message and bring people together to end the plastic pollution.
