I guess you all know about the plastic problems in the ocean… This really scares me. What have we done to our world? Can we save our world?

…it would require every man, woman and child on earth, 6.6 billion… During their lifetime - to cleanup the ocean – they would have to be in charge for 100 000 pickup truck loads of ocean…

When you think of all the plastic bottles, boxes, containers, wrapping… that we use once and then throw away… what a waste of resources!

Plastic packaging is usually made from oil. For each pound of plastic that is recycled it saves us one liter of oil and two kilograms of carbon dioxide. In Sweden, we use 155 000 tonnes of plastic packaging each year, approximately 17 kilograms per person. It takes 450 years before a plastic bottle ended up in nature has been broken down. By leaving it to the recycling can instead become a new bottle, a dish brush or a fence.

Plocka upp skräpet Gävlebor!

Gävle är näst skräpigast av åtta kartlagda kommuner

GÄVLE I centrala Gävle kan man hitta 240 380 skräpföremål på marken en vanlig vardag.
Nedskräpningen i åtta svenska kommuner har kartlagts. Av dem är Gävle den skräpigaste kommunen, näst efter Göteborg.
– Det handlar om att ändra människors attityder. Det är inte okej att skräpa ned, säger Annette Lundgren, projektledare för Rena Gävle.

One really sad thing here in Malta is the fact that people throw their waste anywhere. This picture is from a spot with wonderful view over the northern part of Malta, but it’s really no fun to bring visiting friends and family when the surrounding area looks like this.

In Pembroke a lot of people walk their dogs, like us, but it’s not safe for the dogs…. a lot of broken glass can be found here and there along with cans, bottles, old papers, plastic bags…
