EARTH DAY CELEBRATION AND TREE PLANTING

Planting trees is one of the easiest and most important ways to fight climate change! The Creta Maris Green Team, along with our little friends, celebrate the earth day by planting fruit trees in our gardens!

MAY DAY IN CRETA MARIS WITH VOLUNTARY BEACH CLEANING AND FLOWER PICKING

May Day is considered a day symbol for nature. Creta Maris has decided to celebrate this special day in its own eco-friendly way. Thus, the resort organizes a special day filled with actions that urge guests to come in contact with nature. The day starts with beach cleaning, and then guests and employees are informed about the ecosystem of the area, the importance of beach cleaning and the protection of the environment. Then, they are informed about all the actions that are taken by the resort. The next day, we organize a walk in the hotel's gardens, where guests and employees have the opportunity to see the flora of Crete, pick up beautiful flowers and make colorful garlands to decorate the entrances of the resort for the May Day.

CLEAN UP THE MED

Each year the “Clean Up the Med” awareness campaign involves more than 1,500 locations in 21 Mediterranean countries in order to draw attention on the pollution of the Mediterranean Sea and motivate communities to work together to change the situation. Last year “Clean up the Med” engaged more than 150 participants by coordinating institutions, schools and local civil societies. Different studies have shown that the contamination of the Mediterranean Sea is extremely elevated, and the level of plastic waste is beyond critical. For this reason, “Clean Upthe Med” campaign does not only want to prompt people into action for the removal of waste but also to raise awareness and educate the community on the importance of reducing the pollution of the sea. Thousands of volunteers, from many different countries, speaking different languages, coming from different cultures and religions joined their forces to protect the environment by removing tons of trash that litter the Mediterranean beaches and coastlines, as well as the sea bottom.

TREE PRESERVETION & STREET CLEANING

The above mentioned Creta Maris Green Team’s action, with the hotel guests as its allies, takes place along the main road of Hersonissos. Our team is engaged in uprooting weeds, picking garbage, and whitewashing* tree trunks; activities that aim to protect the trees from pests and sun-scald, as well as to remove all litter from a busy road. The result of this green activity is the contribution of the Creta Maris Green Team in the effort to improve the image of Hersonissos as a tourist destination, as well as to protect the environment.

*Whitewashing = method often used by tree growers or home gardeners to protect fruit and ornamental trees from pests and sun-scald.
