Great Plastic Bake Off Experience

The event was a huge success! Yesterday marked the opening of the first Great Plastic Bake Off Experience. The pupils from De Eker primary school in Anjum had the opportunity to explore the harbor of Lauwersoog, and their enthusiasm was contagious. The entire team involved was extremely satisfied with the results. This is exactly why we do what we do!

Prior to the installation of the mini factory in 2024, schools have been collecting plastic waste in the harbor and surrounding areas. Now, schools have the chance to take part in the GPBO Experience. This event is an important milestone where education and clean-up initiatives come together. Anyone, young or old, is welcome to visit the GPBO Experience (by appointment only).

#NoTrashButTreasure Challenge
For primary schools, we offer a unique program called the #NoTrashButTreasure Challenge. Our aim is to inspire and help reduce plastic pollution, and to make a positive impact in the community with a clean-up/treasure hunt around the school and harbor of Lauwersoog. Through this initiative, we focus on theory, creativity, and gamification as central means of engagement.

If you are interested in learning more or signing up your school to be a part of this program, please send a message to
