Strolling around St Thomas Bay in Marsascala is a treat. But what is the view from this bench? After the weekend, near this bench all you could see was rubbish! Pizza box, wrappers, beer cans and soft drink bottles. Why? The Maltese should be ‘staying home’ but some people are still going out and eating their ‘take-aways’ out in the fresh air. What they are NOT doing is disposing of their litter properly! All that rubbish can easily blow away in the sea! The disgrace of it all? The Marsaskala Local Council have installed bins near EVERY BENCH! As you can see from the last photo, there are bins everywhere so there is NO excuse not to dispose of the waste properly! Thumbs Up for the Local Council of Marsascala! Thumbs Down to the public who have forgotten how to use bins during this pandemic!

Being Indisposed

We all know that Cigarette Butts are one of the major culprits of Ocean Waste. In fact during our Clean Up Activity we saw many discarded cigarette butts in the sand and the surrounding garden area of Marsascala; St Thomas Bay. On the 4th May, we encountered this ‘phenomenon’. The bins are equipped with an ashtray for people to switch off their ‘stubs’ and afterwards dispose of the butt in the bin underneath. This helps to prevent fires. As you can see from the photos, many do not dispose of their cigarettes properly and leave them exposed to the elements. A simple gust of wind can easily push all those butts to the sea! It is a pity that efforts are being made and yet our population still does not know how to use the resources available properly.
