Have you ever heard about the genius bucket, invented by two Australian surfers, that sucks trash and oil right out of the sea? It is so simple, smart and useful and we are very proud to announce that the first Sea Bin system in the Cyclades was established in the harbour of Syros (June 2019), as part of a CPF donation. We work close with the Municipal Port Fund of Syros to ensure the well management of this amazing ocean cleaning device which aims to improve on the traditional -and sometimes expensive- harbor-cleaning methods of having a person physically remove trash from the water or sending boats equipped with nets to collect it.
Many thanks to the Municipality of Paros and to the Nautical Club of Naoussa NAIAS for their collaboration!
We are excited by the positive reaction of the local community and really hope to see the measurable impact of this new #cpfgrant soon.
