How to take part

Due to the Covid-19 measures, and as long as they are valid, we keep the safety distances and always wear a mask.
According to the measures in force and the protection of all of us, we must be very careful of the effects of overcrowding, use of masks and antiseptic. The use of masks is mandatory both due to covid and to avoid inhalation of microplastics during their collection.
  • Mask
  • Work Gloves (NOT disposable or kitchen as there are sharp objects and glasses in these places)
  • Giant Endurance or Garden Bags (helps to measure volume while withstanding sharp objects and heavy weight)
  • Your own water (there is no fountain or Mini market near in most of our places.
  • Antiseptic for your cleanliness and / or alcohol
  • Shoes with a hard, durable sole to step on with more ... confidence.
    1. We spread out in the space and first collect the seemingly "fresh" recyclable materials (coffee cups, plastic boxes, cardboard boxes, aluminum, glass) and collect them in separate bags for recycling. Toilet paper, straws, plastic lids, toothbrushes, calling cards, CD DVDs, pens, styrofoam, light bulbs, toys, and cutlery are NOT recycled.
    2. We collect all the garbage in a specific place and do not throw it away before the end of the cleaning.
    3. We continue to collect large items and collect them together with the recyclables with a clear separation.
    4. Once we have completed the cleaning, we take photos of the volume collected.
    5. Following is a group photo for your reports on social networks. You are our heroes 📷
    6. We move the garbage to the nearest bin and try to inform the municipality about their collection.
    1. Our action is nothing without the promotion of our efforts 📷
      Do not forget to upload to facebook and instagram stories and / or posts with the corresponding tags Save Your Hood & saveyourhood_gr as well as hashtags #saveyourhood 📷 We will publish them immediately! #saveyourhood 📷
      In addition, at the end of your effort, we are waiting for the photos of the group as well as of all the bags 📷 (if you can count them already it will help a lot in calculating the liters)
