NISYRIO is a non-profit organisation focused on creating a new living environment on the island of Nisyros. With community at NISYRIO’s core, our goal is to develop and support innovative projects, raise public awareness, and share via socio-cultural activities.
Our primary intent is to recycle plastic waste. Rather than burning it, NISYRIO aims to change this urgent problem into a positive element of island life by both raising awareness and seeking creative and sustainable practices to reuse and re-purpose the plastic. Keeping nature natural!
The issue arises from a lack of natural water sources on the island, obliging residents and guests alike to consume water from plastic bottles. Rapidly reaching notable levels, we are now faced with the urgent problem of how to handle the plastic waste being created.
The goal is to bring the island society together to develop common ways of thinking and to create a cleaner living environment through sustainable cultural practices. By regarding the plastic waste as a new resource we will engage experts to work on ways to utilize it.
