Plastic Pollution Prevention through the development of Sustainable sport events and voluntary beach clean ups.
by π³=Plastic Pollution Prevention (Non-governmental organization (NGO))
π³=Plastic Pollution Prevention, an organization based in Greece, has two main goals; to prevent and restore the marine environment from plastic pollution.

The part of prevention is to inform and raise awareness to the world in the use, reduction and recycling of plastic, while enhancing Circular Economy. Our aim is to achieve this through educational seminars in schools, conferences and through joint actions with other NGOs, but mainly through sports!

We consider sports to be as one of the best means to spread the message for environmental protection due to the fact that sports addressed to all ages and promotes a healthy well being. Thus, we wanted to add also one more element to sports, environmental protection. We have seen many plastic bottles and waste from running or swimming events to end up in the streets or into the oceans, so our commitment is to organize sustainable sport events, contributing to local communities, eliminating plastic pollution while addressing waste and their environmental footprints.

We want this commitment to be part of every sport event and sustainability to be built into every activity of the organization, rather than to be a bolden on action. Our mission is to eliminate ocean plastic pollution through preventive and sustainable actions.

The 2nd part of our organization, is environmental restoration, and it is covered through beach clean ups and voluntary actions to clean and support every community polluted by plastic.
