NEWSFLASH: TRASH HOTEL ROME

June 21, 2010


“If we do nothing today, this will be the future of our holidays”. That’s the slogan of the first hotel completely made of garbage. All the trash was collected from beaches in Europe and that explaines the name – Corona Save the Beach Hotel – of the hotel. First guest was Helena Christensen; Jade Jagger and Xavier Rud do support the good case as well.

Check out: www.coronasavethebeach.org booking through their Facebook page.
