German start-up everwave on clean-up mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Garbage as far as the eye can see in front of a dam in Višegrad, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The start-up everwave knew immediately that their garbage collection boat CollectiX could clean up and assist there. For a total of 14 days in February 2021, everwave was on a cleanup mission, collecting tons of trash and generating awareness about plastic pollution. CollectiX removed almost 25 tonnes of material every day. This included plastic bottles, refrigerators, foils, but also a lot of wood that was covered in microplastic. Now they are working with partners on a solution to recycle the collected waste in the best possible way. Their vision: Closing the plastic cycle and clean waters all over the world!
