In Malta wood is used to make balconies, doors, boats and sheds. Salvu the carpenter explained in an interview that wood can be restored to its original state by first scratching off the paint, treating the wood with chemicals to get rid of any termites and then polishing the wood again. By restoring wood people will be helping the economy, the environment and saving old Maltese furniture. The main advantage today is that wood restoration can be done much faster today that it was done in the past.

Some people may be afraid of worms and do not think highly of them.  But some species are really worth breeding.  The worms seen in the picture are all the time eating and eating.  In fact, they are really efficient in consuming our waste – be it kitchen or garden waste, newspapers and magazines, in fact, anything that is biodegradable.  It only takes several weeks for these worms to turn waste into fine compost and manure with no offensive smells in the process.  Local governments should consider seriously the adoption of treating waste by this method because it would save them big headaches with regards to the location of waste treatment plants, smell pollution and other undesirable problems.  In addition, the use of fine compost and manure produced by worms would eliminate the use of synthetic fertilisers by farmers and keen gardeners, thus reducing the level of pollution in our aquifers.  The work done by this amazing creation is able to effect positively our environment and should indeed be considered as worthy and precious little worms.

On a small stretch of the Maltese coastline one unfortunately finds more human influence than natural environment. A case in point is the coastal area of Marsaxlokk Bay which currently harbours the following berthing facilities: Delimara Power Station, Malta Freeport, Oiltanking and others. In this article I analysed the human impact on the Ballut Marshland and the surrounding area done with the construction of the Power Station, the concrete wall face, the road and the breakwater. Thus further development in Marsaxlokk-Delimara will sure leave an impact on the environment.
