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?

This snail’s natural habitat is supposed to be surrounded by plants and other animals and not waste. The overuse of plastics and their careless disposal into our environment is leading to it having extensively infiltrated our food chain and natural spaces. Moreover, animals such as this snail are ending up in the wrong place such as in this case, the plastic bottle, and are eventually left to die.
