Athena Koutsokosta

Events & Communications – Athens

How on earth was a supermarket trolley -with disposable plastic bags tied on it- found on the bottom of the sea at Vouliagmeni? Athena and I wondered as we couldn’t believe in our eyes when we saw the spectacle in one of our missions …

Born mermaid, being a technical swimmer with medals in freestyle diving, it didn’t take her long to become a key member of All For Blue and participate in all the underwater activities, motivating other certified divers to take part.

You may meet her at our exhibit booths, accompanied by her 11-year-old daughter Lydia, who is following in her mother’s footsteps in the water as she is already an accomplished technical swimmer.

As an employee of a pharmaceutical company, Athena explains to her colleagues and clients that just one little change in our habits is enough to save the environment and the marine ecosystem. And so, she has put stainless steel straws not only on the pharmacy shelves, but also in our lives.
