Do not litter and instead help to keep Gozo clean – Readers letter
|Email item||Print item||
“Some days ago, Gozonews.com published a report on cigarette butts being on the top of the list of litter on beaches. I wrote a long comment and I felt I should not stop there.
I urged readers to pick up a handful of litter and put it in the available cans nearby. I said to myself, ‘If I dared to ask people to pick up, then I should do it myself’ and I did.
Is there litter in Dwejra where people go to see sunsets and where the Azure Window stood?
Here is a photo where you can see the litter I picked up yesterday, Wednesday, the 13th. It was just me and my bag. My foreign UK friends picked up some cigarette ends, but they were visiting and they were busy taking photos.
On Tuesday I took 4 British guests to see the window and the grand view of the sea at Wied il-Mielah, which after the demise of Azure Window, is having an influx of tourists, locals, and people from Malta.People were forbidden to walk on Azure Window, at Wied il-Mielah some visitors ride their cars up on top of the Window! Is there litter in Wied il-Mielah? Look at the photo and see for yourself what I was able to pick up.
I urge people not to litter and instead clean up a little bit as I did. Wake up local council! Thank you.”
