Summer is loading: Beach Cleaning ...

Its now in its twelfth year ...

Teo Tzoumas reports, that 96 volunteers, and 592 school pupils took part in the beach cleaning programme this year, along with Captain Lambros Choumas and the crew of the Kalypso boat.


Many visitors are amazed to hear  that the island needs a beach cleaning programme. Some even think its an island problem, with the locals. This could not be further from the truth ...

 

If you drop a cup in Thessaloniki, or loose a flip flop in Halkidiki. The wind blows into the sea, it arrives on the North shores of Skiathos, the Sporades or Evia eventually. Along with huge amounts of driftwood, seaweed, and anything the sea wants to give up.

 

The blue drums are from drift fishing nets, that were set by trawlers. Its been a stormy winter so much more of an effort required to clear the beaches.




Well done to all of them, an excellent effort ...

Just 9 days away from #summer_2017
