The Creta Maris Beach Resort on Crete recently celebrated its Travelife Gold recertification by organizing a double action that focused on raising awareness of environmental protection and promoting the genuine Cretan culture.
On the occasion of the “European Car Free Day” and the “World Bread Day”, the resort held an organized cycling event for tourists and staff members.
All event participants rode their bikes to the Lychnostatis Folklore Museum and were informed about the Cretan lifestyle which is inextricably bound to healthy soil, where food grows and to their local balanced diet that recognized as a worldwide standard diet.
Participants also had the opportunity to take part in the bread’s traditional kneading preparation and its baking process.
The aforementioned actions are an integral part of Creta Maris Beach Resort’s philosophy, its sustainable program, and its environmental and local action program, which are carried out on an annual basis.
“Along with other 150 sustainability criteria, these actions are the reason why the resort was awarded with the Travelife Gold certification”, Creta Maris said in an announcement.
