GROHE, a leading bathroom solutions manufacturer, has announced its support of the Pacific Garbage Screening (PGS) project of architect Marcella Hansch.
The company will financially support the initiative, which aims to develop a water platform that collects plastic waste before it damages the ecosystems in oceans and rivers.
Meanwhile, GROHE has also announced plans to collaborate with PGS in an effort to draw the public's attention to the worldwide plastic waste problem, and to raise awareness of forward-thinking solutions.
"We are very much looking forward to working with Marcella Hansch and PGS. The enormous amount of plastic waste in rivers and oceans are a collective problem and represent one of the greatest challenges of our time. This is why we directly decided to promote such an important project for the reduction of plastic waste,” explains Thomas Fuhr, CEO of GROHE AG, confirming the commitment.
“We are particularly impressed with how passionately Marcella Hansch and her team dedicate themselves to their mission. They not only want to create a solution that extracts plastic from the ocean, but also encourage people to change their minds. Partnerships are incredibly important for us, because we can only tackle a global problem together. We are excited about the commitment of GROHE to avoid using plastic and reduce plastic as much as possible with regard to their products but also in their production chain. That is why we are very much looking forward to working with them” he concluded.
