With all the plastic and rubbish washed up on the beach after the recent storms, there are a lot of fires being burned to ‘clean the mess’.
This is going from bad to worse. The plastic burned in place turns into poison, which goes in the air and importantly into the soil.
If you see it happening, you can take photos or a video and post it here. We can then send it also to the local newspapers.
You can also report it to the coast guard of Kissamos, who are in charge of the beaches: 28220 22024
And to the fire department: 199.
If you’re in the area and you call them, they can’t ignore it.
