Launching Event

The most excited moment for us had come. For the kick-off event of our first Cleanup Mission in Cambodia, the carpet rolled out with navy blue, a banquet, a dance show, and a visit from the mayor then we realized that mission would be unique and special.

On “Mission Cambodia,” our two pillars – technological innovation and environmental inspiration – come together in one mission. Here we give you a brief overview of our historical cleanup campaign:

The garbage collection boat CollectiX from our partnership everwave GmbH will be deployed on the Mekong, Tonlé Sap and Bassac Rivers in Phnom Penh, as well as other heavily polluted lakes and rivers in the area, collecting as much garbage as possible.

We will then recycle the collected plastic with our local partner Chip Mong Ecocycle. Alongside this, we are building another sorting plant on-site as a long-term solution.

Continuing on land, we will conduct cleanups 200 meters around the river and collect plastic waste to prevent it from gradually entering the river.

To make prevention even more sustainable and raise awareness, our environmental education team will also be out and about in schools in Phnom Penh this time.

So our mission has three goals besides the immediate impact: To raise awareness for the mindful use of plastic, to improve the infrastructure in waste management and to evaluate the legal situation regarding environmental pollution in workshops with law enforcement agencies.
