Pacific Garbage Screening
Pacific Garbage Screening is a project for cleaning the world's oceans from plastic waste and thus contributes to the regeneration of the ocean.
The organization Pacific Garbage Screening e.V. was founded in 2016 and since then has been trying to filter plastic items from the sea with a specially constructed floating platform without endangering marine life. In addition to the implementation of the platform, the focus is also on raising awareness in society to draw attention to the problem of plastic garbage and to encourage people to reflect on the issue.
Why support this organisation?
MAXX is aware that an eventful hotel stay must be compatible with concern for the environment. For this reason MAXX resolutely promotes specific projects destined to retain natural habitats and conserve nature’s resources.
Consequently MAXX supports Pacific Garbage Screening in its fight against plastic. MAXX recently contributed a sum of Euro 30,000. This donation resulted from “Deutsche Hospitality 1x1”, where Euro 1 for every booking via the hotel’s own websites is donated to a worthy cause.
Fight against plastic
“Our seas and oceans are the basis for all life on earth, but humans are increasingly destroying them: more than ten percent of plastic ends up in the oceans worldwide.”
Marcella Hansch, founder of Pacific Garbage Screening
