Merijn Tinga – Plastic Soup Surfer

‘Plastic Soup Surfer’ Merijn takes ‘taking action for climate change’ quite literally. His creative, innovative and adventurous endeavours attract loads of attention and more importantly – they address those in the position to make change happen. Politicians, business leaders, school children …

Merijn makes sure his audience is engaged in the way they themselves can make a lasting impact on the environment. His different actions have supported concrete change in the Netherlands, from a tax deposit on small plastic bottles to awareness on the unnecessary costs schools make to have their trash recycled.
