The organisation everwave is a social enterprise that is dedicated to protect rivers and the ocean from plastic waste and to promote a more sustainable life-style, in order to protect aquatic environments as precious habitats, food resources and economic regions. For this purpose, everwave (former „Pacific Garbage Screening“) is founded on two pillars: Technological innovation and ecological inspiration.
Technological innovation focuses on a combination of active and passive cleanup technologies for rivers that prevent waste from entering the oceans. Due to their functional architecture, the stationary platform systems continuously take up and store waste drifting with the current. The flexible and AI-supported garbage collection boats are able to clean up waste hotspots in the larger environment – even in places that are difficult to access. The waste is then recycled by mechanical, thermochemical and biotechnological processes to new products.
Ecological Inspiration comprises raising public awareness for the global plastic crisis and promoting solutions through environmental education, interactive events and creative PR activities with international outreach. This includes high quality education material, a website and linked social media channels, interviews and media coverages in news portals and television as well as presentations, information stands and special events.
