Natalia Lyritsis, (l), 5, Alexandra Patrikiou, (2nd l), 39, Alice Lyritsis, (2nd r), 3, and Vassilis Lyritsis, (r), 46, pose for a portrait at their house in Athens. "We recycle plastic, paper, glass etc… and try to buy products made from recycled materials. We try to have as many plants as possible on our balcony," said Alexandra. "The use of alternatives to plastic should be combined with initiatives and campaigns in order to raise awareness and create a greater consensus," she added. [Alkis Konstantinidis/Reuters]
