Roman Weidenfeller, Jono Macbeth, Leon Niederberger and Simon Licht – four strong personalities – join the Kick Out Plastic team and take on roles as ambassadors to campaign for a more sustainable future.
Following the successful kick-off event in December, Kick Out Plastic is delighted to welcome four versatile new players. Roman Weidenfeller brings world champion glamour to the ambassador team: the former football goalkeeper won the World Cup title with the German national team in 2014, and also celebrated multiple German championship and German Cup victories. Besides his passion for sports Weidenfeller loves nature and has therefore set himself the goal of getting actively involved in promoting a clean environment.
Jono Macbeth shares a very special relationship with the environment and especially with the world’s oceans. The New Zealand professional sailor has celebrated international success in almost all boat classes. Even though his professional career has come to an end, Macbeth wants to campaign for a clean environment and strengthen his commitment to sustainability work through his role as an ambassador for Kick out Plastic.
A passion for sailing is also shared by his ambassador colleague Simon Licht. The German actor is known from more than 90 German and international film and TV productions and sees Kick Out Plastic as a project close to his heart. Together with the Kick Out Plastic team, he wants to make his own contribution towards shaping a better tomorrow for future generations.
From water to ice… Leon Niederberger, a German professional ice hockey player, completes the quartet of new Kick Out Plastic ambassadors. Niederberger already has over 100 games in Germany’s top ice hockey league under his belt and devotes his free time to music. The creative athlete wants to lead by example and lend his voice to the Kick Out Plastic project and be part of the change.
The Kick Out Plastic campaign is thrilled to welcome these four inspiring personalities to the team. In joining forces and voices, we are one step further in the match for a sustainable future.
