NHSA | Beach Clean-Up | Saronida Beach
​​Trash can travel throughout the world's rivers and oceans, accumulating on beaches and in the sea.

This debris harms physical habitats, transports chemical pollutants, threatens aquatic life, and interferes with human uses of river, marine and coastal environments.

On July 7th , the National Hellenic Student Assocation (NHSA) are on a mission to make Greece a country better than was it was before. Join them in this Beach clean up in Saronida at 11:30, along with locals and Greeks of the diaspora! 

Free transporation & food.
Bus leaves at 10:30am from Elliniko Station.

3 Reasons to Join a Beach Clean-up:

1. You’ll become more aware of your own lifestyle as well as saving marine animals.
"After picking up all the plastics it’s hard to ever go back to using them or to not speaking up against them.” – Kahi Pacarro – Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii. Thousands of marine species become extinct and endangered every year due to man-made pollutants.

2. You’ll get to know the people in your community better and help them from spreading diseases
Many chemicals are found in polluted oceans and can contaminate water supplies and food chains, which eventually end up in the water we drink and the food we put on our plates. What’s better than spending a couple hours with family, friends, and neighbors making your home a healthier environment?

3. You'll help the ocean breathe and revive the beaches of Greece!
During periods of high tide, the ocean may also sweep some of the trash or debris that has been left on the beach back into the sea. This in turn puts marine wildlife in danger. Beach clean-ups help reduce this risk towards the survival of marine wildlife, and helps the overall marine system be safer and healthier for all. By helping maintain the highest standards and by keeping our beaches clean, we can ensure that tourists continue to visit local beaches.
