On Sunday 29 April at 12 noon, I was so happy to see conscientious Mykonians showing that they want a clean island free of rubbish! The windmill area, Korfos Beach and Saint Anna Beach were the areas cleaned.
Let’s Do It began in Estonia in 2008. The dream of a clean environment emerged. The global volunteer community (many children included), has taken action on the same day every year across the world to clean up our environment. Greece joined in 2011. The terrible fires of 2009 made many Greeks look for ways to help Greece remain beautiful and reduce the environmental footprint.
Beautiful Mykonos suffers from far too much garbage strewn across it’s beaches and roadways. It’s a windy island with loose debris often blown onto the beaches and into the sea. A concerted effort is needed by everyone, those who live here as well as visitors, to keep this gorgeous island clean. Take the time to pick up that plastic bottle that you may see in front of you and throw it in the garbage. If you see someone littering, say something! If we all work together, we can definitely make a difference. Let’s Do It Mykonos!!
