Greece’s summer tourist season is in full-effect, which means her beautiful beaches have been packed and (apparently) polluted… until a few celebrities offered their assistance.
Award-winning actor Will Smith and his family paused their vacation when 17-year-old daughter Willow insisted on cleaning beaches on the island of Antipaxos.
The Smiths are on a yacht touring the Ionian Sea, having visited Corfu and neighboring islands.
The teenage star shared her thoughts about the cleanup in an Instagram post:
Being so far away from what I perceive as a polluted metropolis, I couldn’t stand seeing these beautiful beaches in Greece littered with trash. I saw seagulls, dead on their backs from choking on tiny slivers of plastic and other non-biodegradable materials; They even die from eating fish who have ingested these particle-size slivers. 4 beautiful humans accompanied my mom and I in gathering 22 trash bags full of plastics and urban debris off of 3 small beaches in Antípaxos, Greece.”
