Roos Blufpand

With only 23 years of life experience, she knows how to touch the right tone and move thousands of people who attend one of her many shows. Besides music, Roos is very occupied with sustainability issues and the plastic soup in particular. We’re very proud to welcome Roos to our Plastic Soup Foundation Ambassador team.


Omar Munie

Designer

Yay! The Plastic Soup Foundation introduces our newest ambassador: Omar Munie.

Omar Munie fled from Somalia to The Netherlands and became a successful entrepreneur and a talented Dutch designer, well-known in the Dutch design industry. Omar cares about sustainability, which he puts into practice with the production of his bags. But it doesn’t end there. He also wants to stop the incredible amount of plastic that ends up in our ocean every single minute. Omar has a love-hate relationship with the ocean: he fled from Somalia by sea and many people on that boat did not survive. In Holland Omar lives nearby the ocean where he loves to go for a stroll. It breaks his heart to see that people throw their garbage on the beach. So Omar didn’t need to think twice when Plastic Soup Foundation asked him to become part of the ambassador team and he immediately said yes.


Sander Hoogendoorn

3FM Radio-DJ

Sander Hoogendoorn is infected with the radiovirus by his grandfather who did (and still does) volunteer work at the Delft Radioziekenomroep. After his own program on Stadsradio Delft, Sander was discovered by Fred Siebelink who was looking for new talents for KX Radio. On the wheelbarrow of Rob & Fred, Sander was driven to Hilversum and in 2011 he could start programs for BNN on 3FM. From the night, through the weekend and the evening show, Sander has made the morning show at 3FM from September 2018 from Monday to Friday between 6 am and 9 am.

Besides radio DJ, Sander is a huge lover of killer whales and everything that involves the habitat of these animals. This is the reason why Sander came into contact with the Plastic Soup Foundation. Welcome to our team Sander!
