Founder of "Save Your Hood"
Have you seen a anyone passing by throwing garbage on the streets, woods or beach? How did you react?
That logic of indifference became the reason for Vassilis Sfakianopoulos to start a voluntary initiative along with some of his friends. A friendly call became the source of all of this, and collect 32 garbage bags of 100 lt on Tourkovounia territory.
The idea became a national movement and the result was named «Save your hood» spreading all over Greece with more than 8000 members in only 2 months.
Save your neighborhood, your forest, your beach, save the place that you live in and love. An idea that started on the first lockdown and manifested on the second (15 of November). The need for a change became more than just a walk.
