What made you support the vision of REMEDIES?
“Healthy oceans are necessary to our survival. As plastic pollution has spread to every corner of the globe and microplastics make their appearance more and more often, it is our duty to protect nature and work toward restoring it. REMEDIES provides an opportunity to adopt a holistic approach to the problem, through impactful activities and meaningful partnerships, which comes in agreement with the Athanasios C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation’s action focus. By collectively working towards a solution, taking advantage of new technologies, and engaging local communities, we can eventually achieve sustainability.”
