TELL US HOW YOU ARE DOING YOUR PART IN HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT

We are keen to learn about all stories of how you are helping the environment. Every little helps and whatever you are doing that has nature and the future of our planet in mind is of great interest to us. We are looking for GREEN HEROES to help us share and achieve our mission. During every period we will choose a post and run a feature with the person, group or business in question. We want to set an example and the best way to do this is of course by acting. The more of us take action, the closer we will be coming to creating the awareness needed to fulfill this change and support future generations. Let's all do it for our kids, it's our duty to be the GREEN HEROES of our time to create the awareness required and sustain a healthy future!

Milena from Germany has been doing waste sorting for more than 20 years. Here is what she had to say....

Posted on the 2nd December 2020

99% of Earth's resources become waste in less than 42 days. I don’t want to buy waste anymore like packaging, bags, boxes.... It is expensive for me and damages the planet.


I was at an eco friendly event with Green Malta in Pembroke , at the end of October: a plogging event and I decided to buy a water bottle to refill instead of buying water bottles to go trekking or to carry when I am thirsty on tours with my students ; making bottles consumes energy and plastic takes too long to disintegrate + costs a lot.

 

This is favoured by big companies which want to renew items in order to sell more and make profits. The more they produce the more they destroy and we have to eliminate direct waste and indirect waste such as toothbrushes they make 1,5 kilos indirect waste each for example. 

 

The best waste is the one we don’t produce : Refuse it so don't buy it.

Christine from France shares her passion with school children. Here is what she had to say....

Posted on the 25th September 2020


I organize Erasmus days in a high school in France and we selected the environmental theme this year. "Green planet ; Positive planet" 200 students will be welcomed by teachers to speak about environment and discover eco friendly activities like sports, health, fashion, climate, accommodation, transports, oceans, animals, permaculture so they can share with families, friends, teachers, neighbours, associations, communities...... how to act as fighters against the destruction of our planet. 

Raquel from Malta has taken advantage of this time to reuse and also invested in a bicycle she is using as transport. Here is what she had to say....

Posted on the 17th September 2020


 I like to reuse a lot of the things that we have at home. Unfortunately, before jumping into this trend, we already had many things at home that were not so eco-friendly. But just getting rid of them and buying new ones, didn't seem eco-friendly either. So I try to reuse everything that we have. I have two small kids and during lockdown, actually a life-saver, I turned water bottles into flowers, coffee pods into ornaments and basically any other item I could find. I obviously use reusable face masks and I bought mesh bags for grocery shopping. But my best decision was to get a bicycle. I was raised in a biker environment, where we used to go to school by bike (rain and snow included) so finally getting one after 8 years in Malta, was a big hallelujah. I added a basket to the front (charity shop find) and some bags to the rear, and now I go literally everywhere with my bike. Best investment ever. I attach some pictures of my flores and my bicycle. Thank you all for the opportunity!

Thank you so much for all the help and awareness that you are offering. Since I have been following your posts I have changed and now treasure the environment as much as I can. With a little effort to change my old habits I have managed to do so much.  By taking my own bags & containers for shopping I am avoiding the use of a lot of plastic bags.  Buying your soap products in refillable containers, apart from the good quality products, I am saving money and avoiding carrying extra weight.  Not to mention the fact that I have much less plastic to throw away. 

Lately I had the opportunity to try your BeeFree meat products and they are so delicious and full of good and essential vitamins, so much so that I decided to add them to my diet on a regular basis.

Last but not least thank you so much for the prompt delivery.

Good luck with all your ventures. Humanity needs Ecopence.

Sarah from Malta is telling us how she and her family reuse and recycle. Here is what he had to say....

Posted on the 25th August 2020


I'm helping out the environment by making sure I separate the recyclable and non-recyclable waste. My family and I also always use our own bags at the food store and make sure to reuse anything (plastic bags, bottles, etc.) as much as we can. Today we bought the Ecopence Merchandise pack which we will start to use immediately for all kinds of shopping. I am glad to have found Ecopence and I look forward to learn more about this concept and their future campaigns.

Noemi from Malta is highlighting the fact of how much plastic is used on water distribution on the islands. Here is what he had to say....

Posted on the 25th August 2020


At home, we have a reverse osmosis system installed. Since we have it we have reduced the amount of plastic used in our household by such large degree, while also saving us money that we used to spend on plastic bottled water. One of the best decisions we have made, for our health and the health of our environment! I am so glad to have made such a small change in my life that is helping our planet and reducing unnecessary waste. Through Ecopence we are now learning of an even better system that does not waste water during the filtration, it's simpler to maintain and the filter used is also compostable. So we will be upgrading to this system as it is an even better and cheaper solution than what we have already.
