Recycle and donate

Zorgzaam010

Make a double impact by recycling your plastic bottle for a good cause! As you know, there is a deposit on all plastic bottles these days. Recycling is therefore a good idea anyway, but especially if you do it for a good cause. That is why there are special waste bins in many places in the Netherlands where you can immediately support a good cause with your deposit. For example, Stichting Jarige Job, which makes birthday boxes for children who cannot celebrate their birthday. Every year, 80,000 children can still celebrate their birthday! Or the Plastic Whale Foundation, which inspires the whole of the Netherlands with their 'plastic fishing' trips to recycle your plastic waste (and so the circle with your plastic bottle donation is complete again ;)). Will you join us? Sign up below without obligation with your email address. Then we know that you will make an impact, and we can tell you a little more about where to throw your 'donation' away. Thank you in advance!
