As part of the company’s Corporate Responsibility, “Spyrou Hotels”, members of “Spyrou Philoxenia”, participated with lots of joy in “Let’s do it Greece” voluntary cleanup efforts on the island of Skopelos April 2, 2017
A special task force of volunteers from “Spyrou Hotels” worked on cleaning up the area of Panagitsa Tou Pirgou in Skopelos Town which has been honored as a Traditional Settlement of Outstanding Beauty.
“Let’s do it! World” is a civic-led mass movement that began in Estonia in 2008 when 50,000 people united together to clean up the entire country in just five hours. Since then, Let’s Do It! has spread this model—one country in one day—around the world. In 2011, volunteers from the Environmental Organization of Attica, “Ora gia Drasi” and the Hellenic Solid Waste Management Association came into contact with the group in Estonia and discussed how they can do a similar activity in Greece. This is how “Let’s do it Greece” was formed. To date, 113 countries and over 16 million people have joined us to clean up illegal waste.
“Spyrou Hotels” has enacted various initiatives to promote a higher level of awareness regarding environmental sensitivity in addition to taking direct actions to actively protect the environment. A recent initiative was the cooperation with AFIS for the recycling of batteries, placing battery recycling bins on its properties throughout Skopelos.
“Nature is our legacy and is what we will leave behind for our children and their children”, stated Mr. George Michalis, General Director of Spyrou Hotels and Spyrou Philoxenia. “It is our responsibility to make sure we protect the environment to the best of our individual and collective abilities”, he added. “As the largest company on Skopelos, our Corporate Responsibility is greatly focused in this direction and on doing our share to help protect the environment” he ended.
Currently operating 5 properties on the island of Skopelos in addition to managing reservations and sales for additional properties there, the company is expanding its roster with new partnerships being announced throughout Greece.
