TYPHOON PROJECT
Lens Magazine|July 2021
The Typhoon is the only vessel in the Mediterranean with the sole purpose to clean up the most inaccessible Greek coastlines, which has become, unfortunately, in some places a waste concentration.
PYGMALION KARATZAS
This initiative is within the A.C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation Project Typhoon, an important and indeed ambitious initiative for the maritime environment and its maintenance. Typhoon operates in the Greek waters as the catalyst for protecting the environment from pollution and fulfills the scope for the mega vision and mission set by the Foundation's founder, to contribute with determination in the clean-up of Greece's coastlines as well as that of its thousand islands – small and big ones, from any type of pollutants. - Pygmalion Karatzas
