The Municipality of Ios has launched a new campaign, inviting travelers to visit the island and experience a special summer holiday.
Under the motto “Ios has ‘cleaned up’ for you this year”, the campaign passes messages of volunteerism and caring for the environment through a series of videos.
To prepare for the tourism season ahead, the municipality joined forces with the residents and professionals of the island and – thanks to the contribution of dozens of volunteers – held several cleanup operations on Ios’ beaches.
The results can be seen on the following video which is also going viral on social media:
In addition, seven volunteer divers recently cleaned the seabed of Ios’ harbor by removing a significant amount of trash.
