In Paola, a block of apartments was built next to a reservoir. Every time it rains, the lower levels of the building are flooded as rain water seeps through the rocks. A water pump is used to pump out water directly into the street, creating a hazard for passing cars and pedestrians. This waste of rain water could have been prevented with some planning before the building was made. The nearby outlets of the reservoir could have been cleaned and connected to the building’s waterworks system for water provision of the block of apartments.

School committee together with SMT are aware of throwing away used unwanted good clothes & shoes. Sometimes this is done because of the modern society, the need arises to change clothes and style or because we just can’t wear them anymore. Students said that this is generating unnecessary waste as this is being disposed of in their house bins, and they know that clothing can be a large contributor to the destruction of the environment. Therefore, we decided to bring to school, children’s and adults’ used clothes and shoes, which could be easily recycled and reused, given to other children who are less fortunate and to donation centers to have a second life. The aim behind this activity is to learn from a young age how to reduce waste on our throw away culture by recycling and reusing.

Cranes, concrete, cement, tall buildings and dull dark colours have taken over the lushness of the once vegetated island. Living in these areas is suffocating and boring.
