We clean the Lahn

September 11th 2021

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.
