We are Daan Strang and Steef de Ruijter and this summer we will be plogging the entire Dutch coastline together!
Now you may think, plogging what’s that? Plogging is a combination of being active and cleaning up plastic / waste!
In 2019 Steef already walked the entire Dutch coast and she is the only woman who did this alone! And in 2020 Daan was the only man in the Netherlands to do this! He also introduced the new trend Plogging with his own product the PlogSack!
This year we are going to make our country a little more beautiful together. And we will not do this just once, because we will already start with a small warm-up version in May!
Why we do this?
First of all, because this makes us very happy and this is our way of making the world a little bit more beautiful. In addition, creating awareness around themes such as plastic, waste and ocean plastic is an important goal. We believe that a positive experience such as plogging on the beach activates people to make different choices in their daily lifes. #MaakeenMiniVerschil (#MakeaMiniDifference) ! Together we can make the world a little bit more beautiful. With enough people, all these miniature differences will eventually become a MEGA difference!
In July: From July 22 to August 1.
Daan walks from Den Helder to Scheveningen in 11 days AND
Steef walks from Cadzand to Scheveningen in 11 days!
On the 1st of August they meet each other in Scheveningen.
22 stages in 11 days; 2 stages per day.
Steef does it and Daan does it! Will you do it too? We invite everyone to come and help us. This is of course possible with us on the beach, but we also encourage you to go out yourself because litter can be found everywhere! For example, go for a plog at your sports club, along the side of the road, in city parks, or simply in the bushes of a parking lot or industrial estate.
In May: the Warm-Up Edition: 3 weekends with 6 stages!
May 1 & 2, May 15 & 16 and May 29 & 30. We finished these days with over 240 volunteers and over 1000 kg of removed plastic and litter from the 6 beaches. Thank you for your support!
We take into account the COVID guidelines of the RIVM: We keep our distance and wear a mouth mask when necessary. Together we aim for a cleaner country and a cleaner beach & sea.
This is not an event but an action and you can take action too!
We are collecting donations for charity! Please help us with your donation. All donations this year will go to the WWF, and with that we support the WWF projects to make our oceans and sea plastic free!
