At these cleanups, approximately 7 tons of trash and recyclable materials were collected before they had the chance to make their way into the sea.
Offered Alternatives to Plastic Products
We are happy to say that we’ve done numerous classroom presentations/beach cleanup field trips where young students were taught about the dangers of plastic and littering. The students were enthusiastic and receptive. To schedule a presentation, please contact us so we can provide you with further information.
Hosted a Documentary Night
We believe that documentaries are a great visual for thought-provoking realization. The film watched was “A Plastic Ocean”. This successfully helped people better understand the severity of plastic pollution on a global scale. Another documentary night is scheduled for January 19th. We will be watching the National Geographic film “Before the Flood” which focuses on the dangers of climate change & possible solutions. Click here for more information.

Saved a Tree
Due to building purposes, a healthy tree was removed from a yard. We managed to give the tree a new home where it was successfully replanted.
Grew our team
Removed plastic straws
We have removed plastic straws from 15 different business locations. Because of this, we prevented hundreds of thousands of single-use plastic straws being used and quickly being discarded as waste. Click here to learn more about becoming a Plastic Straw Free Business with us.
We are making baby steps to progress. The individual and community support given to us throughout 2018 has been greatly appreciated. We are very proud of the progress that has been made thus far and we aim to accomplish much more in 2019.
Our goal for 2019 is to continue to raise public awareness through various actions, arouse more community involvement and invite other environmental organizations here in Cyprus to join us in our efforts. The biggest way to see progress with a mission such as this is by “collaboration”. In the end, we are all fighting for the same thing. Joining forces will only make us stronger.
A big THANK YOU to all who have been following our journey. It is thrilling to see so many people supporting our mission of making a “green” Cyprus. If you’d like to contribute to our cause by making a donation, no matter how big or small, to help us continue, you can do so by clicking here.
