We clean the Lahn

September 10th 2022

What we do?

Every year vast amounts of trash reach the oceans. Million tons of plastic pollute our nature. Most of it reaches the oceans via the rivers, particularly in Asia, but also in Europe. We have to prevent this from happening! 

We clean the Lahn from source to ending. 

Together with our partners we want to free the riverside of the Lahn from trash. We aim to build and raise awareness among people not to throw trash away without thinking of the consequences for our rivers, oceans and our nature at large.

Following the Lahn

The Lahn is 245.6 km long. It flows through North Rhine-Westphalia (23.0 km from its source), Hesse (165.6 km) and Rhineland-Palatinate (57.0 km to its mouth). The environment ministries of all three federal states have each assumed patronage of the LahnCleanUp.

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.
