Paddling for our SEA!
It was a beautiful day on Sunday, July 23rd, as 15 paddlers started at 5 o’clock in the morning and helped us clean the beach from the airport fence towards Spiros Beach. Filling up more than 30 bags ( around 250 kg ) of rubbish, mostly plastic and glass. Rubbish that would have ended up in our SEA...Disappointing to see how many people litter and how that becomes a habit.
The event continued with a very educational discussion with Melina Marcou from the Fishery Department. Explaining in details all about our sea turtles and their nests and also about our monk seals that they are endangered.
Later on, a SUP Race took place with 26 motivated paddlers, (women, men and kids) paddling 2 km and back with some obstacles on their way.
Once we finished the race the paddlers enjoyed the delicious food from Falafel Abu Dani and the great music by DJ Iacovos!
A big thank you to all who participated in the event and helped us clean the beach, and especially to our sponsors:
Cosmari Printers, Extreme Sports Makwind Shop, Famous Sports and the Edge Shop.
Stay in touch for more sup events and more beach cleanups! And remember, Reduce, Reuse & Recycle for a better LIFE!
