Let us acknowledge the importance of properly disposing of our waste. He who understands how a trash-can works is nowadays considered a mastermind. Recycling appropriately is not strenuous work. The effects of each plastic cup and water bottle left behind last up to 450 years. According to international studies, humans have created enough plastic since the end of the second world in 1945 to coat the Earth entirely in clingfilm. So let us not suffocate our own home; by recycling and being responsible citizens we can ensure that Earth no longer suffers due to the lack of care of humankind but instead flourishes and breathes.

Scientific research states that Maltese roads are perceived as the fifth worst in Europe, and that Maltese people spend 52 hours stuck in traffic every year. As regards construction, it is evident that permits are issued without proper planning because one frequently finds closed roads at short notice at the same time that runs-offs from these roads are closed. We have all been caught in traffic or forced to take an unplanned diversion, and we know how frustrating it is for our parents.
