Last call for waste dumps…

Standard

You all have been away for holidays, relaxing at the beach or hiking the mountains…or simply having a picnic in a green area as desired and expected all year meanwhile working.

But during your trip or while arriving to your destination you saw a lot of garbage dumped everywhere…couches, fridges, TV’s, plastic bottles and household waste everywhere

Would you like to change that??? We are here to help you, we are here to clean the island and protect the natural environment from further intentional pollution!

Because the mapping process is almost closed we invite everyone to share any location that contains garbage, from the smallest amount to the biggest ones!!!
Join us in our efforts to find and sign the waste in the natural areas (such as beaches, forest areas, mountain areas, rivers, lakes and any other polluted natural areas in Cyprus), outside the cities.

What do you have to do?
Just sign us if you know a place with garbage. Take a picture of it, write down the coordinates or simply use the Geo Tagging function of your camera (if you have it) and than upload it on our website or on our Facebook.

We will make sure that the garbage will be removed ensuring all the materials and the logistics necessary. Any contribution could help us in organizing the volunteers who will participate on the National Cleanup Day on the 29th of September 2012

Καλούμε ΟΛΟΥΣ να βοηθήσουν στην χαρτογράφηση όσο το δυνατών περισσότερων χώρων με σκουπίδια, σε όλη την Κύπρο! Ψάχνουμε σε χώρους όπως: παραλίες, δάση, βουνά, ποτάμια, λίμνες και άλλες φυσικές περιοχές.

Είναι πολύ εύκολο να εντοπίσουμε τα σκουπίδια εφόσον στην Κύπρο δυστυχώς, υπάρχουν πεταμένα πάρα πολλα!! Αφού βρούμε τα σκουπίδια, φωτογραφίζουμε την περιοχή, καταγράφουμε συντεταγμένες ή το τοποθετούμε στο χάρτη χρησιμοποιώντας το Geo Tagging ή αλλα πολλά applications ποθ έχουν τα κινητά μας και ακολούθως το ανεβάζουμε στην ιστοσελίδα!

Discovering amazing people while starting to clean the country!

Standard

Cans for Kids are among our first partners for the National Cleanup Day!

We sustain their idea that by recycling the cans we can cut down significantly on the amount of rubbish going into Cyprus’ limited landfill refuse sites since our main goal is to clean up all the natural areas, beaches, hiking trails, mountain routes, settlements, rivers and lakes and all the polluted natural areas in Cyprus and remove as much illegally dumped waste from the environment as possible by voluntary work, that is why we decided to join forces together for our campaign and to support them in their future actions.

But what makes them special is that they are an NGO that collects and recycles aluminium cans and the money obtained are donated by purchasing medical equipment  to the Makarios Hospital in Nicosia, which is the central paediatric hospital in Cyprus, treating seriously ill children from all over the island.

They are going to be our partners in the National Cleaning Day on the 29th of September 2012, offering local and national support by collecting all the cans that we are going to find among the garbage.  Of course everybody knows them around the island so let’s make their job easier!

This Saturday was the fist time we participated in their actions…  have a look at our teams work 🙂

By saving your cans for Cans For Kids, not only do you help the environment, but you know that your efforts are giving something back to the community.

MAKE YOUR CANS COUNT!

LET’S DO IT CYPRUS!!!
