Xlendi is one of Gozo’s prime tourist resorts. Until very recently it has become the home to a significant number of immigrants who arrived in Malta in search of a better life. Every day early in the morning these migrants start their way on foot to work. As Leon Brown says, “Never give up hope. Situations can change overnight, and problems can dissolve in the light of a new day’s sun”.

Playing boules is a daily appointment for a good number of pensioners with lots of free time on their hands. It is important to encourage old people to go out of their homes, meet other people, engage in activities and be pro-active. Having something to look forward to helps old people stay fit and healthy. Also, they can still give a lot to the community without having to work hard and enjoying themselves on the way.

Though limited mobility this old man stills makes it a point to go out for a walk and take out his dog as well. Unfortunately, too many people, young, middle-aged and old, even though fully mobile, do not bother to go out for walk and take a breath of fresh air preferring to sit for hours in front of TVs, computers and other games. A walk every day is worth every second.

People in Malta are enjoying a high standard of living. This is resulting in buying more things than actually needed and then throwing them away at the first opportunity. This is resulting in the waste of resources.

Gozo is known as the place where time stands still… narrow winding streets, alley ways, old ladies knitting or lacing and even with the key dangling in the door locks. Unfortunately, even the bad habit of spoiling the natural beauty of the island seems to be part of an old culture. Or is it? Why keep on disposing of unwanted belongings in the countryside? It was certainly no choice of this car, trapped in a back to the future machine.

The Maltese countryside is rich with a variety of landscapes containing various endemic species of flora and fauna. The eyes have a lot to feast on. Considering the size of the islands in one walk one gets to see the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, stunning cliffs, sandy beaches, vegetated hills and unfortunately more then one heap of trash dumped unceremoniously in the heart of the countryside. Time goes by and still this powerful urge to spoil the natural environment hasn’t been controlled.

Oh! What a nice thought! Providing toast to the snails, snakes and other wildlife! It should be common knowledge that they do not appreciate it. Why keep on insisting to throw away things in the open spaces as if it is the right place to get rid of unwanted items?

Coffee cups and fast food boxes are amongst the most common roadside litter found. The two tyres are just an addition to make the picture more real. The main problem is that most people tend to ignore litter and not bother to take action. It is wrong to think one is too small to make a difference. As Bette Reese said: “If you think that you are too small to be effective, you have never been in bed with a mosquito.” It is time to become active against litter. What are you waiting for?

An empty beer bottle rests on a bed of bougainvillea flowers. If it is not removed by someone who cares for the environment, it will stay there forever. Do people know how big is the damage done by littering?

Doing it Blindly

Certain areas in different localities have always been prone to littering. Local councils have for long been trying hard to tackle this problem in various ways including setting up signs, promising fines, the revoking of the driving licence, and similar to discourage the improper disposal of waste. This however does not seem to be effective enough. One must not forget that what goes around comes around at the end of the day.
