An extreme expedition on Antarctica in a solar car made partly from waste plastic. Thousands of miles on the sea with a sailing think-thank. It all promotes sustainability.

Solar Car: WhatsOrb Is An Official Partner Of Clean To Antarctica.

Since November 2018, WhatsOr is an official sponsor from the Clean2Antartica project.

Solar Car. Waste Meets Adventure

Two people are heading for the South Pole in a solar car made of plastic waste, powered by the sun. Join us because creating a cleaner world is an adventure for everyone.

How Did The CleanTo Antarctica Challenge Start?

Liesbeth and Edwin (Netherlands) were making dinner when they tossed away another plastic packaging. It was the straw that broke the camel’s back. They turned around their trashcan and their mindset. Why is plastic suddenly worthless? Why do we blame the government or the supermarket?

Leaving your comfort zone to Antarctica

The next day they went to the butcher with their reusable packaging—an uncomfortable situation, but a moment of success that set off a personal adventure. Liesbeth and Edwin went from the discomfort of their trash to taking on the freezing challenge of Antarctica.

Start Small, But Start Today To Recycle Plastic Waste

How do you go from the kitchen table to Antarctica? By starting, failing, and adjusting. People said it's impossible. They said plastic waste wouldn't be good enough; the solar car would die. But here we are, ready to be the first to reach the South Pole with clean technology. Liesbeth and Edwin don't want to set a record. They want to inspire you to take your step for a better world.

Expedition To Antarctica: Solar Car From Waste

An expedition for a cleaner world on the coldest continent on earth. A test of man and machine, to inspire a personal adventure at home.

Leaving the comfort zone

From Antarctica’s base camp, Liesbeth and Edwin will drive to the South Pole and back. A journey of 2400 km through an icy desert where the sun never sets. In -30°C, man and machine will be tested on the driest, coldest, and highest continent on the planet. This is about the power of embracing discomfort, whether it's about an expedition or taking the first steps to reduce your plastic.

A Zero-Waste Continent: Antarctica

Antarctica contains 90% of the world’s ice and belongs to no one. It is zero waste by law, making it the perfect destination for a zero waste adventure. We can learn from Antarctica and make sure it stays that way. We also want to raise awareness of the Antarctic treaty. If not extended in 2048, the continent will be opened for commercial exploitation.

Adventure with purpose

We want people to rediscover their world. To experiment with plastic waste and explore a world of possibilities. Our expedition is a spark for personal adventure. It has all the charm of a classical trip and the purpose of creating a better world. Going on experience, at home or far away, can make us better humans.

-27 °C. The Expedition With The Solar Car

“We got a little impatient here in our Mission Control Center. Rumors went that the expedition team had already landed on Monday, and that turned out to be true. Nevertheless, we had contact with them for the first time on Wednesday. Exciting!

Bad weather and a small incident with the wheel of the Solar Voyager caused some delay, but we have good news. We see movement in our Mission Control Center; it looks like they are going to drive today!

Yes, that did not look too good. The suspension of the front wheel had been shot off. Probably because two rings were not installed correctly, fortunately, everything was still complete, and the Solar Voyager could continue. This accident has ensured that the team is even sharper. Hopefully, this will not cause any further problems in the expedition.”

Episodes Antarctica: Adventures With The Solar Waste Car

Rough start! Strong wind and a crash, but they arrived at Union Glacier. Episode 3, the arrival on Union Glacier. And as Liesbeth says, we’re ready to rock and roll! All systems work. Panels are tested. Food is packed. On Monday, we leave for Union Glacier for our first steps on Antarctica.

Follow the mission of our Antarctica. Check out the expedition videos and stay tuned for new updates about this adventure.

I'm especially interested in new Hydrogen techniques. I'm convinced that - in the near future - Hydrogen will surpass the development of solar or wind as alternative energy source. Safety concerns will find a solution and Hydrogen will be applied massively in all forms of transportation.
