Our aim is to clean up North Cyprus's Coastline! We will focus initially on the collection of man made waste that has washed up on our shores, restoring the land and beaches to there natural (plastic free) state.
About the project
We, at Project Roots, feel very passionately about the Coast of North Cyprus. We have visited Cyprus for the past 6-8 years and have now been permenant working residents for the past 3. After trying to enjoy Cyprus's beaches for so long we have decided that something needs to be done about the rubbish that collects on most of the beaches in our area. We are unsure exactly where the plastic bottles and odd flip flops come from but we want to try to make a difference to at least two large bays in Kucuk Erenkoy (Tatlisu). We will remove all waste from the beaches and headland and to do this we need your help. Funds will help to pay for labour, correct disposal of the waste and heavy duty machinery that will be needed in some areas. We also aim to use the funds to encourage the re-growth of indiginous plants and trees to this area and subsequently, create a natural habitat, to encourage Cyprus's Wildlife to flourish once again.
We want to bring the coast of North Cyprus back to life!
We need YOU in order to make this happen.
So if this idea excites you, or inspires you to want to support it, we greatly appreciate all contributions towards it, however small or big.
