About the event

Οn the occasion of World Environment Day, The American College of Greece and Healthy Seas are organizing a beach cleanup event and environmental education activities along the Saronida coast. Moreover, volunteer divers from Ghost Diving Greece will remove debris found underwater in the surrounding area.

About Healthy Seas

Healthy Seas is a non-profit organisation with a mission to remove waste from the seas, in particular fishing nets, and ensure marine litter will become a valuable resource. Nylon fishing nets are regenerated into ECONYL® yarn, a high-quality raw material used to create new products, such as socks, swimwear, sportswear or carpets, while other types of plastic nets are also reused, becoming jewelry, accessories or provided for research and education purposes. Since its founding in 2013, Healthy Seas has collected over 905 tons of fishing nets and other marine litter with the help of volunteer divers and fishers.

About Ghost Diving Greece

The team is made up of volunteer divers with specialized know-how and equipment, necessary for the implementation of these demanding activities. It is part of the international network of the Ghost Diving Foundation.
