Larnaca beaches to be equipped with “eco-ashtrays”

Ten Blue Flag beaches in the Larnaca District will be equipped with eco ashtrays by the end of the week. Biodegradable, cone-shaped ashtrays will be offered for free in selected beaches, and rather than throwing them away, they are designed to be reused by multiple visitors. Larnaca Tourism Board chief Dinos Lefkaritis said yesterday at the launch of the initiative that it is aimed at keeping beaches free from butt waste, while raising environmental awareness and improving health standards. The initiative will also improve the quality of beaches and help Larnaca’s tourism product stay competitive, he added.
