A common problem that happens in feasts such as Carnival is that there aren’t enough bins next to stalls selling food or if there are bins, they are overflowing with trash. This leads to people throwing away their garbage in cardboard boxes or on the ground. To prevent this from happening, there should be an amount of bins in areas where food is prepared and they should be emptied regularly while the event is taking place.

More fish is being produced by fish farms but this has its disadvantages like the greasy slime that reaches beaches from time to time. Turtles are declining in number due to many reasons, amongst which people throwing plastic into the sea, which they eat mistaking it for jellyfish and chocking on. Overfishing had to be regulated by rules and is finally recovering. Similarly, we must take care of our environment on land. Clean ups can be a solution to this. When these are organised, the trash found varies from cola cans to appliances. Fines have to be paid by those caught dirtying the environment so that we ourselves and our future generations can enjoy it!

What we eat and whether we exercise or not, makes a difference in our lives. Surveys show that Maltese people are still confirmed as the most obese nation in the European Union. This could be the result of eating a lot of junk food which is quicker to find than having to prepare genuine home-made food and it works out cheaper. When parents buy technology to keep their children quiet, what they are doing is that they encourage them to sit down and play on these games instead of urging them to exercise. Students argue that they should have more physical education lessons in schools. Tuck shops should offer healthier options and fast food outlets should promote their healthier options, by lowering their prices. Parents must understand that their choices affect their children’s life so it is important to follow this advice: eat healthily and exercise more!
