Step up against plastic pollution in the oceans

Starling Hotel Geneva supports the Oceaneye association and opens a temporary exhibition called “A plastic to the sea” on the pollution of the oceans by plastics from May 4 to June 15, 2018.

– On the other hand, to actively contribute to scientific research by collecting seawater samples from all over the globe then after to be analyzed to produce data to quantify and map the level of pollution in the oceans.

The exhibition is intended primarily as a didactic, interactive and participative:

in addition to the explanatory materials, you can also discover various boxes of petri with debris of plastic or marine samples.

This temporary exhibition is open to all: come, you too, take another look at the state of the oceans.

Exhibition open to all at Starling Hotel Geneva
