A spotlight on the people taking Malta’s environmental issues into their own hands

The wave of change is upon us and a number of people in Malta have started taking matters into their own hands when it comes to keeping the island green and clean.

From organising group clean-ups both on land and at sea, as well as gathering as many cigarette butts as they possibly can in a span of a few hours, these guys are just smashing it.

Cami Appelgren

Cami and her team managed to gather 10 litres of cigarette butts in a span of two days from the sandy beach of Ghajn Tuffieha!


Constantly organising clean-ups both on land and at sea, and promoting the best environmentally beneficial products on their page, local NGO Zibel are showing Malta how environmental awareness is done!

Malta Venture’s Mellieha Ahrax Clean-up

Popular campsite l-Ahrax tal-Mellieha needed some TLC and Malta Venture delivered.

These guys managed to collect over 10 black garbage bags of waste that was littered all around the camp site.

Raniero from Raniero’s Adventures

Raniero has provided us with his fair share of videos that shows how badly our seas need cleaning. Organising various clean-ups both on land and on sea makes him an inspiration to us all.

Jasha Brinkmann

Another achievement crossed off when it comes to ridding beaches of cigarette butts.

During a visit to Comino, Jasha managed to pick up around 400 cigarette butts and posted about it on popular Facebook group ‘Expats Malta’ together with a little rant, pleading to the people in charge to prohibit smoking and to heavily reduce the amount of plastic that is used on such beaches.

These guys have definitely earned the much deserved recognition. A big thank you for contributing to a cleaner and greener Malta and keep up the great work.

If you want to be a part of their wave of change, just follow them on Facebook and join in on their next clean-up event!
