Prime Partner

Deutsche Postcode Lotterie

Working together for a greener future: Deutsche Postcode Lottery is actively committed to our environment as a main partner.

The mission of the social lottery is to create a better world for us humans and to preserve our planet. The RhineCleanUp not only strengthens social togetherness, but also triggers a rethinking of environmental pollution and its associated consequences. After our employees have already actively supported the big "Rhine CleanUp" in 2018, 2019 and 2020, with the help of our participants we are again financially supporting the project from source to mouth this year. In addition to measures to promote the campaign, work equipment such as trash bags, high-visibility vests, gloves and grabs will be provided for the many thousands of helpers to clean up Germany's second-largest river and its tributaries. And the best thing about it is that anyone can join in and make their contribution to a clean environment.

River Cleanup heeft partnerships over de hele wereld en activeerde meer dan 130.000 mensen in 45 landen langs 161 rivieren. Door onze positieve aanpak laten we mensen zien dat het leuk is om lokaal actie te ondernemen en zo deel uit te maken van de wereldwijde oplossing.  

#celebrate globally



Newly formed in May 2007, the IGSU is an Interest Group for a Clean Environment in Switzerland. The initiative was taken by two private sector recycling organisations, the IGORA Cooperative for Aluminium Recycling and PRS PET-RECYCLING Switzerland. The two organisations have been working together against littering since 2004. Nonetheless, they sought to support activities against littering on a larger scale and have therefore founded the IGSU.
