24 WASTED SOLDIERS TO STORM GAY PRIDE PARADE: WILL YOU BE ONE?

Want to earn 90 EUR at Amsterdam’s Gay Pride Parade, while supporting a good cause and helping keep the city clean? Then you should definitely be a WASTED Soldier.

Amsterdam’s Gay Pride Parade is one of the city’s biggest annual events, drawing 1,000,000 people into the streets. With this mega celebration, comes mega waste. That’s where you step in.

As a WASTED Soldier, you’ll be smack in the middle of the day’s festivities – equipped with WASTED trash bags and plastic coins. You’ll have fun with crowds, and most importantly, you’ll take waste from them. In exchange, you’ll give people a WASTED Coin for their good waste behavior, and they can use the Coin to use the bathroom, or get food or beer at select spots during the parade.

Building on our WASTED Reward System, and with much thanks to our collaboration with Plastic Soup Foundation, this is a great opportunity to help motivate people to keep the streets clean during (and after) the event, generating greater consciousness of individual and collective consumption and disposal habits.

We’re so excited about it. Are you? Write to us! But first, review the particulars:
