Next case study
Porto Montenegro is a full service marina located in the Bay of Kotor offering berths, luxury residences, boat refit & repair services, captain and crew facilities.
The marina has a long standing history of environmental initiatives and forward thinking which has put it at the forefront of the highly exclusive and competitive nautical industry.
Porto Montenegro recognises that responsible tourism is as much about giving to the local community as it is about protecting the natural environment.
‘As a progressive world leading Superyacht Marina, Porto Montenegro is excited to be teaming up with the Seabin Project as a pilot partner. Maintaining a clean and rubbish free marine environment has always been an important focus for Porto Montenegro. Partnering with Seabin Project allows us to not only improve our waterborne refuse collection methods, but to also become part of a bigger environmental initiative by way of educating the next generation in the importance of environmental awareness, and recycling/upcycling of existing refuse. We are excited to have this opportunity,’ said Tony Browne, Marina Director.
Porto Montenegro has implemented the global pilot partner program with Knightsbridge International School where the students have the opportunity to see what is collected by the Seabin and use this information in conjunction with the lessons to learn more about plastic pollution and the effects on the environment. Porto Montenegro is also acting as ambassadors in the pilot program, hoping that more marinas and ports will follow this lead and participate in the data and research programs.
