Reusing plastic objects giving them a second life is done regularly at Maria Regina College Mosta, where students research ways how to reuse waste and actually work together to make this happen. A cute soft hedgehog welcomes students into the garden where there are other various recycled objects that students can see and use. This is a simple example of how with some creativity lots of waste can be given a new life and eventually help in reducing the huge waste problem we have in Malta. Teaching is not just done through lessons, but mainly through presenting real live scenarios and solutions.
