Students of The International School of Paphos joined the Cyprus Sustainable Tourism Initiative to inaugurate the Plastic-Free Beach Paphos to reduce plastic pollution. The event included two beach clean-ups and the unveiling of ‘Hope’, the Seal Mural, on Saturday, 23 September.
‘Hope’ depicts the endangered Monachus Monachus Mediterranean Monk seal and was designed by our Eco Club students, under the guidance of Marina Sophia Flevotomas, Eco-School Co-ordinator and Geography teacher at ISOP, for the @sandseaplasticfree project.
‘HOPE’ has been made with 300 plastic bottles, collected during the last academic year Eco Club Beach Clean-Ups. ISOP is dedicated to ensuring the reduction of single-use plastic, raising awareness of environmental protection and inspiring students to be part of a sustainable future.
