After installing a home reverse osmosis system at our school to be able to minimise waste by using flasks instead of plastic water bottles, we got to know that when the reverse osmosis is not installed properly certain amount of water is being wasted down the drain. Thus knowing that water is so precious in our lives and that every drop counts, we took immediate action to utilise the system properly by installing the necessary needs and equipment so that the wasted-water will be used for flushing toilets.By means of this we managed to catch every drop!

Il-Kumitat EkoSkola tal-Kulleġġ San Injazju Primarja Luqa ħadem fuq kampanja ta’ għarfien fuq livell nazzjonali għal Milied aktar sostenibbli biex iqajjem kuxjenza dwar kemm jinħlew karti għalxejn fi żmien il-Milied. Wara l-Milied 2014, tlabna lit-tfal u lill-ġenituri kollha tal-iskola biex iżommu l-karti tat-tgeżwir tar-rigali li jkunu se jarmu u wara l-vaganzi tal-Milied iġibuhom l-iskola. Dawn intużaw f’attività li fiha ksejna l-art bihom. B’hekk stajna naraw l-ammont ta’ karti li kienu se jintremew. Ksejna area totali ta’ 522metru kwadru! Mill-filmati li ġbidna ta’ din l-attività, ħloqna vidjo (https://vimeo.com/147580611) li użajnih matul il-kampanja EkoMilied 2015 sabiex naqsmu mal-pubbliku dak li skoprejna. Barra minnhekk, b’din il-kampanja xtaqna nuru wkoll li hemm modi li bihom nistgħu naqtgħu din il-ħela, speċjalment billi nenfasizzaw dawk li bl-Ingliż jissejħu ‘the three Rs’ – reduce, reuse u recycle. Il-kampanja tnediet l-Erbgħa, 2 ta’ Diċembru fis-sala tal-iskola, fil-preżenza tal-Ministru għall-Iżvilupp Sostenibbli, l-Ambjent u t-Tibdil fil-Klima l-Onorevoli Leo Brincat.

Time stands still in natural beauty spots away from the humble and jumble of routine life. One such spot is between Xagħra and Marsalforn Bay. However there is litter strewn all over the place and even an upside down sofa is present. How can someone go especially to such a place to throw their unwanted items?

A walk in the countryside reveals that some citizens still have a long way to go or actually learn as regards proper disposal of unwanted items. The opening of civic amenity sites and free pick up of bulky items services do not seem to have been enough. Nature itself seems to be trying to give us a lesson with snails doing their best to camouflage the eyesore, the result of some arrogant citizen who purposely disposed of this sofa in the countryside. Is it so difficult to understand once and for all that preserving the outdoors is one simple way of safeguarding our future?
