Why new Maltese brand HAPPY POT is a step towards a greener Earth

Having a plant collection is already cool and beneficial, but planting them in eco-friendly, visually-pleasing, and customisable pots steps up your plant collection… and who wouldn’t want that?

Here’s a fun fact – plants aid in reducing stress; so even if you don’t own plants, you should probably look into getting some.

Happy Pot gives you the option to choose the sizecolour, and any symbol or emoji you desire, giving you the complete creative freedom to customise your indoor or outdoor pots with ways to describe your personality (or your plants).

Whether it’s for your nanna, colleague or your best friend, Happy Pot makes a great gift for any occasion. With so many preset collections and customisation options, there’s a Happy Pot for everyone. 

You can even decorate your office plants with your business logo to give your workspace that ‘extra’ kick. (Like we did)

Besides making your plants look and feel happier, you’d also be contributing to a greener Earth, since Happy Pot has teamed up with Treeapp to plant trees across 3 continents and 12 developing countries, in an effort to reach their goal of 200,000m2 of reforested land by 2024. 

Happy Pot’s pledge is to encourage more young people to care for plants and appreciate the world around them. They aim to do this with their monthly beach clean-ups and will keep us in the loop with updates on how to contribute to a greener world. 

Customise yours or pick a collection from www.happypot.co  – let’s make the world a greener place, one pot at a time.

Approved: Most electronic devices in EU to use USB-C by 2024

Approved: Most electronic devices in EU to use USB-C by 2024

The EU has officially voted in the proposal to universalise all electronics chargers across the bloc after Maltese MEP Alex Agius Saliba tabled the plan.

The European Union will be gradually making the USB-C the only charger used for mobile phones, tablets, cameras, headphones, headsets, handheld video game consoles and even portable speakers.

Over 96% of the European Parliament gave their stamp of approval for the new law, which will see the entirety of the EU adopt the USB-C chargers over the next few years.

The Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee voted 43 to 2 in favour to approve the report tabled by Agius Saliba six months ago. This gave him a mandate to negotiate with the EU council and EU commission on a final rendition of the law.

Aimed at drastically cutting electronic waste, the law will see tech companies operating in the bloc using the USB-C and phasing out all other variables by 2026.

Research tabled by Agius Saliba around six months ago indicated that around 11,000 to 13,000 tonnes of electronic waste is generated per year due to there being multiple chargers in circulation.

Agius Saliba had been meeting with various CEOs and management teams of tech giants to negotiate for this new law, with Apple even reportedly working to change iPhone structures starting in 2023 to accommodate the USB-C.

Dangerous working conditions persist despite public outcry

An image sent to this newsroom shows a construction worker in Balzan engaged in highly unsafe work as he stands on a wooden plank suspended various storeys up in the air.

It is unknown what works were being undertaken but the worker could be clearly seen wearing no safety harnesses or taking any precautions necessary to avoid potential risks. 

There have been several public outcries for more safety precautions to be implemented on the workplace following various accidents and fatalities which took place in such circumstances.
