Rivers are Life Premieres ‘Keepers of the North’ Film to Illustrate Innovative Way of Recycling Plastic Waste

Rivers are Life films part of \”Keepers of the North\” in Alaska.

Chris Pallister, founder of Gulf of Alaska Keeper and a Rivers are Life River Hero, explains how litter ends up on Alaska’s coastlines.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – December 9, 2022 – (

Rivers are Life is proud to present “Keepers of the North,” a film that takes viewers on a never-before-seen cross-country journey of Alaska’s plastic waste as it becomes something usable, hope-inspiring, and new.

WHO: The film explores a unique collaboration between Gulf of Alaska Keeper (GoAK), FedEx, the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, Dow, Pyxera Global, and the Center for Regenerative Design and Collaboration (CRDC), who have teamed up to take the harmful trash left in Alaska’s hard-to-reach shores and recycle it into an innovative, durable construction material dubbed RESIN8TM.

The film focuses this story through the perspective of River Hero Chris Pallister, founder of GoAK. “From a cruise ship two miles off shore, Alaska’s shoreline looks pristine, but it’s not,” says Pallister. “It’s a … mess up here and people need to realize that.”

WHAT: “Keepers of the North” explores the challenges of cleaning up the Gulf of Alaska while exploring a new, scalable approach to making plastic waste useful.

As trash levels on Alaska’s gulf coast continue to rise, waste management, and the costs associated with it, have become a focal point to continue supporting cleanup efforts. “The difficulty with marine debris cleanup in Alaska is 33,000 miles of coastline,” explains Lori Aldrich, Hazardous Waste Project Manager with the State of Alaska. “Half of Alaska you cannot reach by road – you’ve got to take a plane, you’ve got to take a boat, you’ve got to take a combination of different things.”

“Keepers of the North” is the first official project presented by Rivers are Life. Rivers are Life played a lead role in bringing together these like-minded collaborators to overcome structural and natural barriers to collect and recycle the waste collected from Alaska’s coastline. From small, community-focused initiatives to large, multi-stakeholder efforts, Rivers are Life projects make a positive impact on river ecosystems and are scalable through the support of public and private sector collaborators who share common values and goals.

WHEN: Rivers are Life began filming “Keepers of the North” in July 2022. The film premiered on Thursday, Dec. 8, 2022.

WHERE: The story begins in the remote reaches of the Gulf of Alaska, where litter accumulates through ocean currents, fishing routes, and tourism. After local volunteers collect the garbage, they are faced with a new problem – what to do with it?

This film follows the litter collected by GoAK along its journey via FedEx shipment to a CRDC facility in Pennsylvania – where new technology is recycling historically hard-to-break-down ocean plastics into a better, durable product for bricks, concrete, and other important structural building substances. “Keepers of the North” is an inspiring film that shows how innovators can come together to test and scale solutions for waste and recycling.

“Keepers of the North”  is now available for viewing at


ABOUT RIVERS ARE LIFE: Rivers are Life is on a mission to raise awareness of the true force and fragility of our river systems while showcasing their interconnectedness with all of us, our planet’s wildlife, and the ocean waste problem. Created to serve as a collective voice for global river ecosystems, Rivers are Life is comprised of River Heroes, organizations, and businesses dedicated to making a difference in local communities one project at a time. In sharing the stories of our waterways and those working to protect them, Rivers are Life believes we can cultivate a greater awareness of the importance of our planet’s rivers while driving innovative solutions, inspiring sustainability, and addressing waste.

Budapest Invites Travelers to Spend the Holidays Abroad

Budapest Invites Travelers to Spend the Holidays AbroadChristmas markets, skating rinks, theatrical performances, thermal baths and many more surprises make Hungary’s capital the ideal destination to enjoy a white Christmas this year

BUDAPEST, Hungary – December 9, 2022 – (

Visit Hungary invites travelers to spend the holidays abroad as the capital city of Budapest offers a variety of seasonal activities, eye-popping decoration, and authentic Hungarian traditions. From Christmas markets, thermal baths, candle lighting ceremonies, theatrical performances and mulled wine accompanied with strudel, visitors will discover the city’s most magical time of the year. 

Picturesque Christmas Markets

The Christmas markets attract the most attention in a city where the holiday spirit can be found in every corner. The atmosphere of these markets, located smack dab in the city center, turn Budapest into a fairytale setting full of lights and decorations. There are many stalls offering delicious sweets and beautiful crafts at the markets.

Considered one of the most beautiful markets in Europe, the Vörösmarty Square fair is now open and can be enjoyed until Dec. 31, where the aroma of mulled wine and gingerbread fill the air. Another must-see is the market in St. Stephen’s Square, known as the Advent Feast at the Basilica. It is one of the most important Christmas markets in Budapest, boasting more than 100 exhibitors and 200 activities right through until Jan. 1.

Christmas Beyond the Markets

As well as the traditional Christmas markets, Budapest offers many other options to enjoy this holiday season. One of the most popular is ice skating. There are illuminated ice rinks throughout the city. The most famous is at the foot of Vajdahunyad Castle built in baroque style. Skating under the stars at this Városliget Ice Skating Rink, the largest in Europe, is an unforgettable experience. After skating, make sure to walk around the castle while enjoying typical roasted chestnuts.

After these wonderful outdoor experiences in a city where you can find even snow, if you are lucky, it never hurts to warm up. Budapest makes this easy at its famous thermal spas, with their wonderful restorative waters. The Széchenyi Thermal Bath is the largest in the capital and well worth a visit, as is the Rudas Bath at the foot of Gellért Hill, where you can enjoy a spectacular view of the city from its rooftop hot water pool. At the foot of Gellért Hill, you can also try the popular Gellért Bath, one of the oldest baths in a city with more than 1,500 thermal springs.

Running through the end of December, Budapest’s iconic “Advent Tram” transports locals and visitors throughout the city in beautifully decorated trams. A QR code allows riders to support the nursery school for homeless children of Oltalom Egyesület.

Cultural Programming

The first comprehensive exhibition of El Greco’s oeuvre ever organized in Budapest can be viewed at the Museum of Fine Arts through Feb. 19, 2023. The exhibition seeks to provide a broad overview of one of the foremost masters of European art, Domenikos Theotokopoulos, most widely known as El Greco (1541-1614), through presenting the complexity of his visual world and sweeping stylistic development. The almost seventy displayed works include more than fifty autograph paintings by the Cretan-Spanish master. The last comprehensive exhibition of El Greco’s work on this scale in this part of Europe was in Vienna, more than 20 years ago.

The Hungarian National Museum is launching an Art & Gourmet program on Dec. 17 allowing visitors to have a special guided tour of the exhibition followed by a Hungarian dinner from the country’s top chefs. The initiative will take place every Saturday from 5 p.m. 

To end the day, the best option is to enjoy a great show, of which the most Christmassy is the famous Nutcracker at the recently renovated Opera House. Listening to the powerful music of Tchaikovsky at the Opera House, it’s almost impossible to not get into the Christmas spirit in a more splendid way.
