LET'S MAKE CYPRUS GREEN started with a team of two people and now consists of over 30 members diligently working towards tackling plastic pollution through education, action and prevention. Many people have become enlightened by participating in the 10 beach cleanups we organized and collected over 5,000 kg of trash. Our NGO registration documents have been submitted, and we are now waiting for a reply from the Registrar. By achieving an NGO status, it will give us eligibility for funding from Cyprus and from the EU. It will also give us additional credibility as an organization and will allow us to petition the government for changes in legislation which will further support our cause.
