Life is like a boomerang – what you give is what you get. This is what is happening – a lot of waste is being thrown away carelessly by humans without thinking about the consequences. As a result, this waste is being misplaced and is ending up in our food chain. Unfortunately our oceans are becoming very popular in being referred to as the new dumping sites.

Recently, strong winds hit the Maltese islands and the rough sea unveiled ample litter floating in Cospicua Dock. The floating litter consisted of trash and household toxic substances that are improperly disposed of on land or in water. Water cans, plastic bottles and cups as well as oil cans, spray metal bottles, ropes and other forms of litter have been seen floating at Cospicua Dock. This constitutes an eye sore for passers-by along the Cospicua Dock promenade. Litter which ends up in the sea can travel long distances owing to strong currents and winds. It can directly affect marine life and birds, get caught in fishing nets, damage boat motors and smells bad. Furthermore, plastic bags and plastic wrap can easily be swallowed by fish and birds and suffocate them. After contacting the Cospicua Local Council, the necessary steps were taken to clean up the litter at Cospicua Dock.
