As a result of the collaboration between the Municipality of Serifos and the A.C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation
The smoke-free beach initiative is part of the Sea Change Greek Islands project, which took off in 2018 in Sikinos after launching an action plan to phase out the use of plastic bags and plastic straws. Now a collaboration between the Municipality of Serifos and the A.C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation aims to make the island’s Vagia beach the first smoke-free beach in Greece. Vagia is a wide sandy coast with crystal clean water and one of the most beautiful locations on the Aegean.
The project includes the creation of a designated area for smokers, with ashtrays bearing environmental messages aimed at sensitizing visitors to the polluting impact of cigarette stubs. The long-term goal of the project is to transform Vagia into the first smoking-free beach in the Cyclades and to raise awareness amongst all of us to take action and prevent marine pollution. Similar projects have already been implemented in France and Italy.
