Plastic Free Cyclades: women have the power to create change!
Women associations have eliminated disposable plastics from their events and replaced them with reusable materials whilst learning how to reduce, reuse and recycle waste and compost better!
The CPF and the Federation of Women’s Associations “The Kores of the Cyclades” are working together with the aim of strengthening the local women’s associations and honor them as timeless ambassadors of environmental protection and sustainability in the local communities. Our collaboration began with an online fashion bazaar aiming to raise funds for the purchase of reusable utensils (plates, glasses, cutlery) which would be donated to local women associations to replace disposable plastic.
With your support, we raised and matched funds tο deliver 1600 reusable sets to the 16 Members of the Federation, representing 13 Cycladic islands (Syros, Milos, Amorgos, Antiparos, Paros, Kythnos, Kea, Serifos, Sifnos, Syros, Folegandros, Mykonos and Andros). Congratulations to the Kores of the Cyclades for becoming real champions of sustainability on their islands and a special thanks to Aria Hotels for their contribution!
