While walking along one of the most beautiful valleys in Gozo, I came across these plastic bags spoiling the natural surroundings. It is a known fact that plastic takes years to decompose. This valley is only a stone throw away from Ramla Bay and all litter including plastic ends up in the sea thus harming sea creatures either through entanglement or ingestion. What can we do?

Here are some suggestions; • Practice the 3Rs : Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. • Increase more waste bins everywhere in order to prevent people littering in the environment. • Try to reduce the usage of plastic and find other environment friendly alternatives. • Organise more clean up activities. Every little effort goes a long way for a better, safer and cleaner environment.
