Gone are the disposable cups, but on the Marebrug they were still there a bit during Leidens Ontzet. The 8000 disposable cups in the bridge house once again emphasised why we use reusable deposit cups. The first 1000 canal cups were collected in the canal under the house and formed the basis for the project. Now they are back and together they form a visual farewell to the disposable cup.
The light installation made the front page of the Leidsch Dagblad.
Take a look through the windows of our bridge operator's house and learn all about the plastic in the canals and our special urban nature. From stuffed animals and canal beasts on ethanol; but also our best treasures and weirdest finds of plastic pollution encountered during our clean-ups. Throughout the year, collection pieces are exhibited in various 'window exhibitions'. You can visit them for free, from outside, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Admission is free, but donations are always welcome.
Nature in times of corona
A fish caught in a corona glove and the first of the many thousands of mouthguards we had to fish out of the canal last year, are some of the masterpieces that will be on display in the coming months. The exhibition 'Nature in times of corona' runs until the end of November 2021.
