Someone irresponsible dumped this mattress and made all flora rest as it crushed the grass and plants. It is a real eyesore to such a beautiful site at Xgħajra sea side.

On one particular placid Saturday afternoon, my family and I went to Xwejni Bay which is situated between Marsalforn and Żebbuġ in Gozo to enjoy a picnic. This bay is covered with posidinia and is at the end of a rocky valley. To our dismay my family and I noticed that in certain areas of this beautiful bay, plastic bottles and other litter was scattered all over the area. Prior to settling down on the deserted sand to enjoy our scrumptious picnic, my family and I decided to do something worth while – restore some of the stolen natural beauty of the area. Together we started cleaning the area. Besides having an ugly effect, wind and rain would have carried all that litter into the sea and do further damage. People, behold, think before you litter. Littering has too many ugly consequences!

We met this lovely ‘niċċa’ on our outing. Traditions are an essential part of the culture of our people. We applaud the effort already being made by some local councils to restore such niches to their glorious past so that they can stand the ravishes of time and hope that this one receives the same treatment.

Pick up point?

This unsightly heap of litter was left to be picked up at the corner of a main road in Naxxar close to my house. Much of the items that have been disposed of, such as cardboard boxes and plastic water bottles could have easily been placed in bags for recycling and placed outside to be collected on appropriate days. Other items such as the computer monitor and carpet underlay seen in the photograph should have been taken to one of the bring- in- sites available on the island. How is it that in this day and age, with so much awareness from the media, some people still persist in disposing of their litter in such an irresponsible way? When will we learn to care for the environment we live in?

Don’t throw me away!

These two colourful bags are waiting for the garbage collector. Looking closer you can see that they are filled with recyclable materials. Why do some people ignore all the efforts being made to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and throw all that comes to hand outside for the garbage collector? Why do they insist to continue making the world uglier for us, the next generation?
