Leading Insurance company GasanMamo Insurance continues to support environmental projects as it donates two diving kits and diving gear for NGO Zibel. With marine debris being a well-documented issue both locally and globally, the team up prioritises initiatives which support the caring for the environment. With an estimated 224,000 metric tons of trash floating on the surface and anther 8.5 million metric tons sinking to the bottom, such initiatives are crucial in pushing for environmental awareness and protection.
This summer alone, Zibel has collected 3.9 tonnes of waste with the diving clean ups, surfacing regular items such as car tyres and bottles and the occasional peculiar items such as thermos flasks, boat trailers and even false teeth. GasanMamo general manager Mark Mamo expressed his pleasure in collaborating once again with one of Malta’s most energetic environmental NGOs. ‘Their passion for cleaner seas creates a natural fit between our organisations, and the environmental ethos that we strive to create and support both within our organisation and our communities’ he stated.
