Let’s create a cleaner environment! Merijaan Social helps people use plastic more consciously by educating about up- and recycling. We also set up local circular recycling economies which benefit both nature and locals. A win-win-win situation for everyone.
When plastic isn’t valued, is it any wonder it’s thrown away? We educate children - and grown ups - on how to use plastic more consciously.
We set up circular economies around the globe by buying used plastic and turning it into products that are needed locally.
Hello, Sri Lanka! That’s where we launched our pilot project in 2020. It went great - until Corona.

Making waves with partners
A world without plastic seems far off - but we can create a world with more environmental awareness here and now. And we’re not alone! We brought to life a collaboration between Sri Lankan and German authorities that focuses on tackling poverty and pollution through education.
The EduBox is all about playful recycling education. It’s an actual, physical box designed by students of HTW college and made with our partners at SBNE, Kalpititya and Kitesurfing Lanka. It boasts a wide range of educational materials. A favorite is an online game that lets you navigate through oceanic plastic waste as a turtle. Our workshop can be booked through the box.
