Willow Smith Takes an Eco-Minded Ionian Cruise

The 16-year-old daughter of Will Smith has been enjoying the azure waters of the Ionian and helped clean beaches from washed-up debris on Antipaxos.


Hollywood star Will Smith’s teenage daughter Willow has made a hit on Instagram after posting photographs of her and her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, cleaning up washed up plastic debris from a beach on the Greek island of Antipaxos.

The Smiths are on a family cruise in the Ionian Sea and have visited Corfu as well as other islands in the area.

Willow has been posting photographs and comments of the experience, including a day spent cleaning beaches.

“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,” wrote the 16-year-old.

“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.”

Aside from pitching in to help keep Greek beaches clean, Willow appears to be enjoying the stunning waters and coastline of Paxos and Antipaxos as her Instagram feed attests.

 

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. When we see these things on our TV’s or phones it seems far away for some reason; But when it’s right in front of you I feel as though it is humanities responsibility to do as much as we can (in the moment and long-term) no matter how small the action is. As we all start to do our part, we gradually make a difference. Hopefully today we were able to elongate and preserve the beauty & existence of the local sea life.
