The tourist sandy beaches of Kefalonia bording with the underwater Posidonia oceanica meadows face problems in the sence of both aesthetic as well as dificulties in using the coasts for leisure, due to accumulation of large quantities of seagrass.The removal of posidonia from the beaches is usually treated to methods which are not protecting the natural environment.The ecologist Katerina Xenopoulou implemented in 1999 a pilot idea for a new use of posidonia for the production of natural fertilizer by using the composting method and an optimal method for minimizing the impact of the beaches.
