Dolomite, the 124-year-old Italian outdoor apparel and footwear brand owned by the Scott Sports Group, is supporting the Clean Mont Blanc project, led by the Summit Foundation and Aqualti. This cross-border initiative will see a multi-disciplinary 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 the Summit Foundation is meant to raise awareness of the problem and the effects that humans have on the mountain environment.
