GRTU (Malta Chamber of SMEs) together with it's subsidiary GreenMT has been very active in developing a national policy for implementing a comprehensive solution to WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment). The aim is to create a not-for-profit scheme that will collect and recyle discarded electrical and electronic equipment on behalf of businesses who are members of the scheme.
GreenMT has been very proactive in discussions and actively spearheaded this initiative together with the Minister for the Environment, the Hon. Leo Brincat. The most awaited outcome of this initiative will be the removal of the ECO Tax system. The unfair ECO tax system is going to be replaced with a much better solution where costs included in the price of items will reflect and be proportional with the actual recycling costs of the products.
Your carbon footprint is how much Carbon Dioxide you produced in your day to day activitues. All you need to do is to key in some data about your lifestyle and instantly calulate your carbon footprint !
You can also compare your carbon footprint to other countries and to the accepted sustainable average.
The calculator is intended to make you aware of what adds most to your carbon footprint.
In a lifetime the average Maltese person will throw away 600 times the amount of his or her adult weight in garbage. For example, a 90Kg adult adult will leave a trash legacy of 54,000 kilos.
On the 23rd January we visited the Maria Regina College - Naxxar Primary School and we helped to further educate the students about recycling by giving them an educational talk whilst also teaching them through music and dance.
Our main focus in this talk was about eliminating single use plastic from our lives. Here are a few items we should focus on eliminating: plastic cotton buds, plastic straws, plastic plates and cutlery, plastic cups, plastic drink stirrers, plastic balloon sticks, single use plastic food containers and drinks cups and single use drinks containers.
Green MT also introduced our Eco-Warriors: Arty, Blu and Xemx, who will help us to promote keeping a cleaner environment. We also donated reusable BPA free water bottles to all the students which, to the student’s delight, bore the images of the Eco-Warriors printed on them.
Green MT contributed in providing cleaning equipment to Floriana Local Council for a clean-up event “Genna Ta’ Gonna” on Sunday 6th October.
Green MT organised an Informative meeting regarding recycling waste to senior residents at Mellieha Day Centre. Free Gifts were also given.
Green MT - together with their mascot Cikka & Kristina Casolani visited the Majjistral Nature Park’s – Festa Natura. We have given an educational talk to all the students present about the correct way how to recycle. The Students loved every moment and also the small gifts provided by Green MT.
In October Green Mt visited San Andrea Primary and Senior School and introduced the new recycling crates into each classroom. Well done for recycling. Keep up the good work!
