Marine debris is one the biggest enemy nowadays – can be found above and under the water all over the world. Literally, everywhere: recent articles state that even tiny, uninhabited islands in the middle of the ocean are full of plastic and other rubbish. Sea pollution has serious effects on marine life but on humans’ life too. Stand up for your environment, for clean seas by joining cleanups! We did it, joined a beach cleanup in Malta and enjoyed it a lot!
Responsible young adults – Organizing beach cleanup in Malta
Living by the sea means you spend a lot of time on beaches and of course underwater. There are simple rules that nature/water lovers, like us follow: do not litter, pick rubbish up even it’s not yours, take garbage out of the sea if you find. It is such a good feeling to see that people (most of the time volunteers) started to take more responsibility for environment by organizing beach cleanup in Malta and everywhere in the world.
Since we live in Malta at the moment, we very actively looking for events we can meet new people and give something back to nature. We’ve just recently found an event called Snorkeling beach cleanup in Malta and were extremely happy to join. It is organized by keen local guy Cane Vella. Get more infomation about the upcoming events on Get trashed Malta.
These enthusiatic guys decided launching their cleanup series few months ago to keep Malta beaches tidy. Thanks to their efforts and endurance, the group is growing! Nowadays not only their friends but other persons that take care of the environment are joining the events too. It feels good to know that there are many voluntary groups realized how important is to play an active role if it comes to environment protection. Here in Malta, on this tiny Mediterranean gem are more and more event focusing environmental issues and educating people how to go green. Look around in you country/city, I am sure you will find local events to join! If not, be the one who takes the first steps and organize beach cleanup yourself! Good vibes are spreding like sunlight; sure you will find like-minded individuals easily who will be more than happy to participate in such a meaningful misson!
Why to join cleanups?
Reading about pollution and rubbish problems won’t help the environment, so take actions! First off all, it is much more easier to learn about environment protection and keeping motivated it if you are surrounded with like minded people. Being part of something important will make you happy and give you the feeling of satisfaction. You can easily make new friendships, get to know people with the same mentality. It can be a great family activity as well! And an easy way to educate adults and kids how to be responsible and how to work together. Last but not least joining beach cleanup in Malta or any other part of the world is fun too!
Be the change you want to see in the world!
