Seabin Project to Fight Against Ocean Pollution
The Bermudian.com, April 07, 2017
A floating rubbish bin is to be installed in the marina at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club to help tackle the global littering problem.
The Butterfield group will sponsor the installation of the pre-series V5 Hybrid Seabin to coincide with the start of the 35th America’s Cup. Water is syphoned from the surface and passed through the natural fibre catch bag inside the Seabin. The water is then pumped back into the marina leaving litter and debris trapped in the catch bag to be disposed of properly.
Butterfield is an Official Supplier and the Official Bermuda Bank, and the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club is the Official Hotel of the 2017 America’s Cup.
