Unfortunately car batteries like this are not so rare in our countryside. Apart from being unsightly, the acid in the battery that seeps in the soil damages our environment for many years to come. Not an activity that should be encouraged obviously. These car batteries should be properly disposed of. Perhaps together with the Batterina Campaign there should also be a Batterona Campaign??

This is Wiġi tal-Beżuża tending his sheep and goats at Dingli . His trade has been passed from one generation to the next. Rearing livestock used to involve the whole family. Long ago, when the herd was bigger, women made traditional cheeslets from goats’ milk called ġbejniet and they also sheared their wool. In December 2011, the National Statistics Office stated that the population of sheep decreased by 4.0 % and that of goats by 3.4 % when compared to the previous year. While foraging, one of Wigi’s goats chewed on a discarded plastic bag. Our carelessness is affecting our environment. If we act more responsibly such realities could be avoided. Indeed, we should appreciate our cultural and environmental heritage more. The next time you are enjoying a picnic in the countryside please do dispose wisely of that plastic bag, the outcomes may be greater than you could imagine!

Dumping in 2013! Irresponsible, shameful and degrading! We cannot enjoy our beautiful islands without witnessing horrendous acts like the one above. Bulk refuse service, which is provided free of charge, is surely the civilised way to deal with undesired junk. Instead, a few mad hatters opt to pollute scenic landscapes away from public scrutiny. Education and effective policing are our best hope to reverse this persistent trend. I hope we restore our shores to their original state and let families and tourist alike enjoy our unrivalled coastline.
