Our surrounding environment has certainly an impact on our health. A filthy environment is certainly a threat to both present and future generations. At the seaside, one hopes to enjoy picturesque sea views similar to that shown in this photo. This photo shows an impressive view of Ghajn Tuffieha Bay with crystal clear sea and a spotless sandy beach. Rightly so, this bay now holds a Blue Flag award.
Unpolluted seawater means less risk of infections. Cleaner beaches lead to fewer injuries resulting from stepping on broken glass, cans or worse discarded syringes. It is not enough that we breathe clean air to safeguard our health. We must take measures to protect our coastline and the marine environment. More bins should be placed on beaches and people should be encouraged to use them. In this way, tourists and locals will keep on visiting and enjoying these natural attractions for years.
