Dolomite is supporting the Clean Mont Blanc project, led by the Summit Foundation and Aqualti. This cross-border initiative will see a multidisciplinary team collect water samples for microplastic testing around the Mont Blanc Massif and organize volunteer clean-up days in the three countries surrounding the massif: Italy, France and Switzerland. The sampling and testing of water for microplastics by Aqualti will allow scientists to enhance their understanding of the mechanisms of the transfer and accumulation of microplastic particles in the ecosystem. The clean-up campaign led by Summit Foundation will raise awareness of the problem and the effects that humans have on the mountain environment. Since before its first recorded summiting in 1776, the Mont Blanc has been the stage for outstanding human accomplishments and adventures. All this human activity around Mont Blanc comes with impacts on its environment.
