Following the successful cleaning of Paraporti beach last year, island’s entities expand their actions to more beaches of the island and invite you to participate in the cleaning of the beaches of Mylos, Fellos, Ateni and Paraporti.

The cleaning will take place at the same time on all beaches on Sunday 14 June starting at 11.00.

As part of the action, the participants will be informed by the organizers about the plastics that end up in our seas and the ways through which we can contribute in tackling the problem. The beach cleaning will follow and the collected waste will be removed from the beaches by the team of the LIFE Andros Park project.

The action will be carried out taking all precautions, in order to keep the required distances between the participants, while on each beach antiseptics and disposable gloves will be available.

As currently birds may nest on beaches, the selected beached are either close to the main settlements, or are already regularly used and no birds are expected to have nested.
