We clean the Neckar

September 11th 2021

What we do?

Every year vast amounts of trash reach the oceans. Million tons of plastic pollute our nature. Most of it reaches the oceans via the rivers, particularly in Asia, but also in Europe. We have to prevent this from happening! 

We clean the Neckar from source to ending. 

Together with our partners we want to free the riverside of the Neckar from trash. We aim to build and raise awareness among people not to throw trash away without thinking of the consequences for our rivers, oceans and our nature at large.


Following the Neckar

The Neckar is a tributary of the Rhine with a length of 362 km, covering the central part of Baden-Württemberg with its catchment area of almost 14,000 km². Hydrologically, the Neckar is the fifth largest tributary of the Rhine and the twelfth largest river in Germany in terms of both length and water flow.
