Many hands make lighter work and a lighter waste mountain. Thanks to the help of various organisations and companies, Eneco Clean Beach Cup gets a little closer to its goal every time: a sustainable future for our oceans and seas.

Eneco

Eneco

Since 2007, Eneco has been implementing initiatives to make sustainable energy available to everyone. The energy supplier has meanwhile grown into a leader in energy transition, both in Belgium and the Netherlands. Eneco supplies green energy by focusing 100% on sun and wind.

And sun and wind also mean beaches! That is why the company also launched the Eneco Clean Beach Cup about 10 years ago. The beach cleanup campaign makes people think and reflect on the plastic problem. Besides Belgium, it also mobilised the Netherlands to clean beaches.

Dealing with sustainability involves more than developing sustainable energy sources. How do we want to treat our planet? How do we contribute to a sustainable future for the next generations? Eneco tries to formulate constructive answers to these questions every day.

North Sea Chefs

The North Sea Chefs are encouraging chefs, amateur cooks and anyone who loves fish to use less well-known fish species and bycatch responsibly. We should eat what the fisherman catches. But there are not only fish in the sea, there are some 150 million plastic bags floating around in the North Sea and 20,000 tonnes of waste is added every year. 80% of that waste washes up on our beautiful beaches. This is why the North Sea Chefs can be found at the Eneco Clean Beach Cup every year. Fun fact: all the North Sea Chefs' aprons are made of at least 65% recycled plastic bottles!

See what the North Sea Chefs stand for and what they do here.

Mooimakers

Mooimakers

Mooimakers is an established name when it comes to raising awareness and campaigning around street trash. This Flemish initiative actively supports individuals, schools, associations, local authorities and companies that want to dedicate themselves to a cleaner environment.

Renewi

Renewi

After the plastic and waste is collected from the beaches, something naturally needs to happen to it. We have relied on Renewi for this for many years. They collect all the waste gathered after the Eneco Clean Beach Cup and start processing it. Everything that can be recycled or used for something else is given a second life. The rest is fully sorted and processed. The result of their work? Less waste, smarter (re)use of scarce raw materials and fewer CO2 emissions. This is how they work towards a cleaner, circular world in which waste no longer exists.

WWSV

WWSV

Wind- & Watersport Vlaanderen is the Flemish unisport federation for surfing, sailing and all related sports. Besides the innumerable negative consequences for marine life, for surfers and sailors, all that plastic and other waste in the sea also pollutes their sports field. To raise support for the problem, WWSV signed a mutual commitment with previous North Sea State Secretary Philippe De Backer. WWSV has been involved in the Eneco Clean Beach Cup since its very beginning and is enthusiastically putting their shoulder to the beach-cleaning action again this year.

Foodbag

Foodbag

Sustainability, seasonal ingredients and home-grown products are obvious for Foodbag, which delivers weekly meal boxes and unique recipes to your home. Foodbag does not work with stocks, so orders coming in are ordered directly from the producer to keep the chain as short as possible and the products as fresh as possible. The use of packaging is also kept to an absolute minimum. So joining forces with the Eneco Clean Beach Cup was a no-brainer for Foodbag.

There is always something for everyone on foodbag.be

Sea Life 4

SEA LIFE

SEA LiFE Blankenberge is home to the only seal sanctuary in Belgium. Since 1998, seals have been taken in and cared for there, before being released back into the sea. During the presentations you will learn about feeding and care techniques and go home with lots of fun facts.


The seals are not the only ones you can admire in the park. In the outdoor area of the park, you will meet crazy Humboldt penguins and playful otters.

If you want to expend some energy in between, you can indulge in the climbing adventure & playground. Once back inside, you will discover a colorful underwater world with different kinds of sharks and fish, seahorses ... and even a captured sea turtle! The park always works with quests or quizzes, so there is always a challenge for the family.
