Annual Beach Cleanup in Vouliagmeni

The volunteer beach cleanups have been established as a key information and awareness tool for the prevention of marine litter pollution.

Under the motto “We clean what we left behind us during the summer”, Danaos contributed to this initiative by devoting a few hours to cleanup the beach of Megalo Kavouri in Vouliagmeni.
HELMEPA, the national coordinator of these activities in Greece, provided us with supporting material (cleanup organization instructions, posters) and the special Trash Data Form which showed that the cigarette filters were once again at the top of the list.
During the last years, the list is filled almost entirely with plastic waste, associated with recreational activities in the coastal zone, polluting every “corner” of our seas and beaches. Especially microplastics are one of the environmental challenges of our time, because they serve as a new type of “food” that invades uncontrollably into the sea food chains, as seabirds, fish, marine mammals this deadly “delicacy”.
