Joel Tasche is the Founder and CEO of CleanHub, a Berlin-based company stopping plastic from entering our oceans. Joel’s love for clean oceans started with a childhood spent by Lake Constance in Southern German, sailing, swimming and enjoying nature. Later in life, during his travels and surfing adventures in Southeast Asia and the Pacific only deepened this passion.
However, wherever Joel went, he was confronted by the pervasive issue of litter, garbage and pollution. Tired of seeing such repetitive scenes, he decided to start CleanHub in 2020. CleanHub is building a global infrastructure to collect plastic and other waste, in areas where adequate waste management is not available. The goal is to create the collection system for everything we use daily and shift the narrative from waste management to a circular economy.
