Hollywood star Will Smith, his wife Jada and his daughter Willow cleaned up three beaches on the island of Antipaxos. The Smiths have been cruising the Ionian Sea in Western Greece on a yacht. They obviously could not just swim and have fun after they saw the famous plastic “souvenirs” on the Greek beaches.
Will’s sixteen-year old daughter, Willow, posted about the clean the beaches action on her Instagram account and spread the news to her 2.3 million followers.
She wrote that a group of seven people cleaned up three beaches littered with trash and gathered 22 plastic bags full of plastic and urban debris.
Being so far away from what I perceive as a polluted metropolis, I couldn't stand seeing these beautiful beaches in Greece littered with trash. I saw seagulls, dead on their backs from choking on tiny slivers of plastic and other non-biodegradable materials; They even die from eating fish who have ingested these particle-size slivers. 4 beautiful humans accompanied my mom and I in gathering 22 trash bags full of plastics and urban debris off of 3 small beaches in Antípaxos, Greece. When we see these things on our TV's or phones it seems far away for some reason; But when it's right in front of you I feel as though it is humanities responsibility to do as much as we can (in the moment and long-term) no matter how small the action is. As we all start to do our part, we gradually make a difference. Hopefully today we were able to elongate and preserve the beauty & existence of the local sea life.
