Famous Hollywood actor Will Smith’s daughter Willow, is on an Ionian island cruise with her family and friends.

The teen, who has over two million followers on her Instagram account has been posting photographs of her experience for the past few days.

Two days ago, Willow posted a photo of herself and her mother Jada Pinkett Smith, cleaning up trash and debris from a beach on the Greek island of Antipaxi alongside other volunteers.

“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,” she wrote.

“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."
