ambassadors and supporter

Nonprofit organizations – like us – thrive on communication. It is therefore important that well-known personalities also competently represent our concerns to the outside world. We are pleased that we have two ambassadors who actively represent our cause on different stages.

Anna Hiltrop, who has been internationally successful as a top model for over 16 years, has been dealing with the issue of sustainability for years - initially in the fashion industry, but now also in other areas. In 2022 she was named Model Icon of the Year - especially because of her commitment to nature and the environment. This has included her work as an ambassador for RhineCleanUp since 2020.


Through her popularity and contacts, she helps us to reach new target groups and win them over for our project. She was also the “face” of our advertising campaigns. But she also lends a hand - several times a year at CleanUps with prominent support. And: At the RCU action day on the second Saturday in September, she is always represented with her own team: “Anna & Friends”. Anna, thank you very much for supporting us and being part of the RCU family!

Andreas Fath teaches as a chemistry professor at Furtwangen University. To generate money for his research projects, he takes unusual approaches. In 2014, he drew attention to his work and his commitment to the environment with a spectacular campaign: he swam the 1,231-kilometer-long Rhine from source to mouth. Accompanied by a team that checked the water quality at all stations.


At the second major spectacle, when Fath swam the 2,700 kilometer long Danube in 2023, RCU was already “on board”. Our ambassador Andreas Fath promoted our DonauCleanUp everywhere. Groups in Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia and Romania also came to us. In 2024 there will be a new challenge – the Elbe. Andreas, we are glad that you are part of our team - and we will be there again on the way from the Czech Republic to Cuxhaven.

Prime Partner

Deutsche Postcode Lotterie

Working together for a greener future: Deutsche Postcode Lottery is actively committed to our environment as a main partner.

The mission of the social lottery is to create a better world for us humans and to preserve our planet. The RhineCleanUp not only strengthens social togetherness, but also triggers a rethinking of environmental pollution and its associated consequences. After our employees have already actively supported the big "Rhine CleanUp" in 2018, 2019 and 2020, with the help of our participants we are again financially supporting the project from source to mouth this year. In addition to measures to promote the campaign, work equipment such as trash bags, high-visibility vests, gloves and grabs will be provided for the many thousands of helpers to clean up Germany's second-largest river and its tributaries. And the best thing about it is that anyone can join in and make their contribution to a clean environment.


River Cleanup

River Cleanup has partnerships all over the world and activated more than 180.000 people in 80 countries along 161 rivers. By connecting people, businesses and governments, the non-profit creates involvement and commitment to work together for a clean environment. The combination of people and technology is an efficient and effective approach to stop the 11 billion kg of plastic that ends up in our oceans, every year.


Newly formed in May 2007, the IGSU is an Interest Group for a Clean Environment in Switzerland. The initiative was taken by two private sector recycling organisations, the IGORA Cooperative for Aluminium Recycling and PRS PET-RECYCLING Switzerland. The two organisations have been working together against littering since 2004. Nonetheless, they sought to support activities against littering on a larger scale and have therefore founded the IGSU.
