Greek beach surprised tourists by introducing an unexpected ban.

The Marikes beach in the Rafina area of ​​Attica, in the southern part of the country, which is particularly popular, has banned smoking. This was announced by the electronic edition of the Greek newspaper Ethnos. According to Mayor Evangelos Burnus, there will still be a designated smoking area on the beach, but it will be small.

The beginning of the introduction of a ban on smoking on beaches in Greece began in 2020, recalls “Ethnos”. According to Cigaret Cycle, 30 billion butts are thrown away every year. The non-profit organization is conducting a recycling campaign in 15 municipalities in the country.

The sludge is collected in special waste bins and exported abroad, where it is processed. The extracted toxic substances and the composted paper residues and residual tobacco are used for the production of fertilizers and products such as pallets and pots.
