Green Activists Group -Clean up Laganas forest and the surrounding area

We are lucky on Zakynthos to have so many volunteers who want to help keep our island clean. The Green Activists cleaned up for two days around the area of Laganas and the forest there.

Car bumpers, televisions, several meters of pipes, 75 garbage bags full of garbage and much more were collected during the two days by the volunteers of the “Green Activist Group” who cleaned in “Vrontonero” and in the forest of Laganas.

See what they posted on their social media page:
