The Ocean Cleanup

The Ocean Cleanup project the Netherlands - Nederland

An island fighting an environmental crises:

Bali, the enchanting island of the gods, is renowned for its breathtaking landscapes, lush rice terraces, and crystal-clear waters. However, the beauty of this paradise is under threat from the pervasive issue of plastic pollution in our oceans. Recently, during a diving trip around Nusa Lembongan, we witnessed firsthand the devastating impact of plastic waste, with alarming amounts of debris littering the water.

Our Commitment to Environmental Protection:

At Furniture4rent, we believe in taking responsibility for our environmental impact. That’s why we are dedicated to minimizing our ecological footprint wherever possible.  One of the ways we do this is by carefully separating our waste and ensuring it is correctly processed by delivering it to recycling centers.

But more important, one of our key core principles is the promotion of a circular economy, where products are reused rather than discarded after a single use. By offering gently used, yet still excellent quality furniture packages at a special, low price, we not only help the environment but also provide our customers with cost-effective options.

Our Donation to Ocean Cleanup:

In addition to reducing our own environmental impact, we are committed to supporting initiatives that address plastic pollution on a larger scale. That’s why we have chosen to donate a portion of our proceeds to Ocean Cleanup, an organization dedicated to cleaning up plastic waste from our rivers and oceans. Led by a passionate team with a “can do” mentality, Ocean Cleanup is making tangible progress in tackling this global crisis.

By contributing to Ocean Cleanup’s efforts, we are playing our part in restoring the health of our oceans and creating a cleaner, more sustainable future for generations to come.

How You Can Help Too:

We urge you to join us in the fight against plastic pollution. Here are some simple steps you can take to make a difference:

  • Reduce your plastic consumption by opting for reusable bags, bottles, and containers.
  • Participate in beach and riverbank cleanups to remove plastic waste from our shores.
  • Support organizations like Ocean Cleanup through donations or volunteer work.
  • And of course… if you move to the Netherlands as an expat, don’t buy your furniture but rent it!

Together, we can make a positive impact and safeguard the beauty of our planet for future generations. Let’s unite in this mission for a cleaner, healthier world!

Join us in creating a brighter future for our planet!
