Beach Clean-up Activity

Remedica continued its coordinated summer beach clean-up campaigns in order to raise awareness about clean seas and coasts. In this context, the company organised a voluntary in-house beach cleaning activity on the 25th of July 2020 in Limassol. The gathering place was the Old Port of Limassol where the employees participated in a cycling activity and then proceeded to the area Bar to start the cleaning.

Coastal cleanups have been established as a key information and awareness tool for the prevention of solid waste pollution. This waste is directly related to our daily consumption habits. While we use these items for a short time, they remain for many years onshore polluting the shores and posing a serious threat to marine animals and birds. As we now know, plastic waste has reached every corner of the globe – in the most remote and uninhabited places, to the depths of the oceans – and through the food chain can reach our plate. We all need to be part of the solution to reduce this serious environmental problem.

As a result of this effort, our employees and their families gathered in the area and cleared up several meters of coastline collecting large amounts of waste.

It is worth noting that the non-governmental organisation ‘Rescue 1’ was present at the beach clean-up with trained staff and appropriate equipment in order to clean the ocean.

The event was attended by the Mayor of Limassol, Mr Nicos Nicolaides who also gave an addressing speech, as well as Municipal Councilors.
