Waste that we throw away in the environment does not vanish, but returns on our doorsteps. Plastic beverage bottles are an eye sore when we take a stroll along our beaches. These bottles are not biodegradable and according to the US Environmental Protection Agency, they take 450 years to decompose if they are thrown away in landfills or in the environment. Unfortunately, what is thrown into the sea is washed on the shores by waves. If these materials are not picked up and disposed of properly, they will end up back into our sea. It is wiser to reuse them or recycle them as we reduce damage to the environment we live in.

Students from Gozo College San Lawrenz Primary went on a walk on the nearby cliffs of Dwejra. Unfortunately, there were amazing amounts of dangers, illegal buildings and pollution from trucks dumping different materials in the country side probably not knowing that taking waste at the civic amenity site is free. One of the dangers is an abondoned disused quarry – unfortunately it is easy for someone to fall inside. The photo shows a very high wall where the building stone was cut in the past. If there was someone walking by there and did not notice that there is a drop right in front of them they would fall in it. Attention authorities – with just a little bit of money the area can be kept safe and clean. Can some barriers and signs warning people to keep away from the quarry be put up?

Sustainability? Yes, it’s possible, especially with the help of a group of nine-year-olds from Gozo College Rabat Primary who are highly determined to send this message to the people out there… The year 5 Roses class has decided to do it right this time …take a trip to Marsalforn valley on a fine morning, plant trees, sing the song “Sustainable is Possible” and film it all up! “Do it!” we all sang at the top of our voices, so that our message is a wake-up call to whoever wants the world to be greener, cleaner and a better place to live in. The three Rs and caring for the environment are fundamental to the sustainability of our planet. Let’s get started! A big thanks goes to our teacher and to EkoSkola!!

Trees are of great importance in our lives. Unfortunately throughout these last years in our island, many trees have been destroyed either by human beings capriciously or to make way for any development and also for other reasons. Tiny seeds were planted in the small plastic bottles which within three months they grew in small beautiful plants. We all can contribute in this by planting seeds which by time they will grow in trees. So would you like to be of any help to our society?
