Bejn l-Imnajdra u Ħaġar Qim hemm passaġġ iffrekwentat minn Maltin u turisti. Dan il-passaġġ huwa xi ftit perikoluż minħabba li qiegħed f’ livell aktar għoli mil-bqija tal-art tal-madwar, għalhekk huwa faċli li t- tfal jaqgħu fil-ġenb tiegħu kif wieħed jista’ jara fir-ritratt. Nissuġġerixxi li l-ġnub jimtlew bil-ħamrija biex jieħu l-istess livell u fl-istess ħin jistgħu jitħawwlu xi pjanti, b’ hekk ikunu qed isebbħu l-ambjent.

Il-Buskett – l-isbaħ masġar li għandna. Instema’ bebbuxu jgħajjat: Waqqgħuli d-dar! Stairway li ma jwassalx għal Heaven Jerrycans, pajp tal-ilma u flixkun tal-laundry detergent. Tgħid il-Buskett huwa xi bring-in site? Tazzi, platti tal-plastik u pakketti tal-ikel. Għalxejn ħawwilniehom, l-ebda siġra tat-tazzi ma’ telgħet Xi darba kien saqaf ta’ x’imkien. Issa imbarazz qalb is-siġar

awarded: 1st place international, 1st place Litter less Campaign

We wrote this article to spread the word about the worrying data we collected about the local Junk Mail situation during our Litter-Less research. We managed to enroll 9 families in our school community and they agreed to keep the junk mail they received over a period of two months. We then weighed that mail and calculated the amount the families would have collected over a year. We also estimated how much junk mail would have been collected if we had to multiply the results to the number of dwellings in Malta. Moreover we estimated the number of trees that would have to be cut down to create all that paper that will end up as Junk Mail. The results we obtained were mind blowing and all this after the massive ‘Sort it out’ campaign. Are we really sorting it out?
