40 bags of trash collected in just five hours amounting to roughly 2.3 tons of waste

Apr 5 2023 Share

Nadur Nadif volunteers teamed up with Din l-Art Helwa, Santa Marija Tower Comino, The Cast-Out Project: Gozo & Malta, and 7R Lifestyle Malta to launch a cleanup campaign on the island of Comino.

The results of their joint efforts were staggering, with 140 bags of trash collected in just five hours, amounting to roughly 2.3 tons of waste.

While the initiative was lauded as a successful endeavour in conserving the island’s ecosystem, the quantity of garbage collected was shocking.

The organisers of the cleanup event are calling for more measures to be taken to address the issue. They are urging the authorities to establish an Environmental Protection Unit (EPU) and Environmental Rangers on Comino, in addition to increasing investment in the island’s cleansing department and police force.

In an issued press released, ‘Nadur Nadif’ said that “while the efforts of government agencies are necessary, visitors and tourists also play a vital role in keeping the island clean. Every individual visiting Comino, or any other environmentally protected site in Malta, must take responsibility for their actions by disposing of their waste responsibly.” 

The organisers of the cleanup campaign urge everyone to participate in the conservation of such sites by organising small clean-ups around the island.

‘Nadur Nadif’ explained that “Comino is a small island that is part of the Maltese archipelago, and even though it may not be our home, it is essential to preserve its natural beauty and unique environment. The Glass Fields of Comino, one of the island’s iconic attractions, are a reminder of the fragility of our environment and the importance of taking action to protect it.”

The Nadur Nadif volunteers, together with their collaborators, demonstrated the power of collective action in conserving the environment. Their efforts have shown that it is possible to make a difference and that every individual can contribute to the preservation of our planet.

It is now up to the authorities, visitors, and residents of Comino to take the initiative and work together to ensure that the island remains a pristine and unique destination for generations to come.

Italians who make use of English or any other foreign words in official communications could face hefty fines of up to €100,000 under new legislation being proposed by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni’s ruling party. 

The legislation was introduced by member of the lower chamber of deputies Fabio Rampelli, and it went on to earn the support of the prime minister.

The legislation includes all foreign languages but it particularly targets ‘Anglomania’ (the use of English words) as it ‘demeans and mortifies’ the Italian language. 

The bill is yet to go up for parliamentary debate and would require anyone holding an office in public administration to have written and oral knowledge and mastery of the Italian language. 

It also prohibits the use of English in official documentation. Foreign entities would have to create Italian language editions of all internal regulations and employment contracts. 

The legislation’s first article makes sure that Italian must be the primary language used even in offices which deal with non Italian-speaking foreigners. 

Meanwhile, article 2 would Italian mandatory for the promotion and use of public goods and services in ‘national territory. The fines for breaking this could go up to between €5,000 and €100,000.

Gen Z more joyful seeing their pet happy than their partner

Apr 5 2023 Share

A new survey from February 2023 suggests that Gen Z is more likely than any other generation to be more joyful seeing their pet happy than their partner. 

Surveying 2,000 pet owners evenly split by generation showed that only 15% of Gen Z would rather buy an expensive concert or vacation ticket whereas 42% would prefer saving for unexpected pet expenses. 

This was somewhat backed up by 30% of Gen X, who would rather save up for their pets rather than go on a trip (20%) or purchase concert tickets (27%). 

41% of Gen Z are more likely to spend $100 on their pet rather than on their partner. They also admitted to getting more joy from seeing their pet happy (36%) than their partner (21%). 

The survey was conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Synchrony, and it found that half of baby boomers (54%) spend less than $150 each month on basic pet expenses. This brings a pet owner’s spending to about $3,000. 

And this doesn’t just include food or vet visits as owners spend non-necessity items like clothing, toys or even technological tools. 

45% of respondents would even give up eating out for a whole year if it meant free pet expenses for a year. 42% would also forego social media and 36% streaming services for this same reason. 

48% would give up romance for a year, 38% work for their worst boss again and 36% their pay check if it meant that their pet would live an extra year. 49% of millennial would sleep outside in winter snow to give their pet one more year of life.
