140 elementary school students from Sychroni Paideia Schools, took part in the coastal & underwater cleaning action on Alimos beach.
French volunteers also participated, from the University of Lille who took care of the counting and weighing of waste while the show was stolen by divers who impressed our little friends with the “findings” they took from the bottom, such as a road sign, wheels, soft drink cans and an umbrella!
The action was attended by the Mayor of Alimos Mr. Kondylis who greeted and thanked the volunteers as well as the Deputy Mayor of Cleaning Giannis Antonakis who took care of the immediate collection of waste.
“Caps, cigarette butts, plastic and glass bottles, cords, pandemic waste, underwear, credit cards, keys, pills, brooms, road sign, stroller, cigarette packs, coffee capsules, watch, pegs only ….. the items we collected during this educational program for cleaning Alimos beach under the guidance of All For Blue !!!
Impressive feeling of helping the environment, we liked it very much as a process, as a “lesson” for what can be caused by man consciously or unconsciously and in fact so easily!
We had a great time cleaning because we did it with our classmates, we had fun, we also helped to make an excellent beach even more beautiful, we met people from other countries with the same concerns and we collaborated as groups with a common goal:
the environment and our eyes!
Thank you for the very beautiful experience as this was our first “exit” from school, after 2 consecutive years !!! ”
