On the 14th of September we presented Paperboat 3 during the ‘Groene Grachten’ and the Solar Boat Race, an event about sustainability and technology initiated by Wubbo Ockels. We were part of ‘Het Plein van de Toekomst’ or ‘Future Plaza’ in English.
Today we’ve tested Paperboat 4, the first bio-degradable boat. The boat is constructed with used cardboard and old newspapers, and the glue is solely made of organic materials. So you can throw it on the compost heap after use! And next year it could become a beautiful flower.
Since we made a canoe we thought we might as well test it in the waves on the beach in Scheveningen.
And it survived the forces of nature!
And here it is!
The final corporate storytelling movie the students of InHolland made for us. It’s a fantastic movie, we’re proud and honoured to have been a part of their project.
So a big thank you to Aissa Traore, Wilja Buyse, Pim van der Linde, Faricha Hamidullahkhan and Ruben Alders.
Our Paperboat traveled to Giethoorn to be a part of Sail Giethoorn this year. The little boat looked really tiny but hopeful amongst all those magnificent old sailboats.
The event took place from June 12 to 14, 2014.
And our thanks to ADIGRA.nl for the great photographs!
On the 8th of June we launched the ‘Paperboat Race’ together with Duurzaam Den Haag at the North Sea Regatta in Scheveningen. Caspar Bouman kindly agreed to be our test pilot, because it was the first time our little Paperboat was launched in salt water.
But it withstood the sea remarkably well!
Today the students of InHolland Rotterdam surprised us with their beautiful movies. Their assignment was to create a short corporate story movie for us. These were the first drafts, and already astonishing! It all looks very promising for the final movie!
