Mi-C3’s Affectli crew contributed as a team to Earth Day on 22 April 2018 – to help end plastic pollution. Plastic is threatening our planet’s survival, from poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our streams and landfills. Malta’s Earth Day Cleanup initiative was the catalyst that inspired our team to give up a few hours of their Sunday, to clean up trash in the area of our office location. The well organised team from Malta Cleanup identified 73 areas across Malta and Gozo, in order to spread the impact of the day’s work. People took to the streets with gloves and rubbish bags, as well as recycling bags, all supplied by the organisers.
It was not only a feel-good day, where our team alone picked up more than 40 large bags of rubbish from the streets, but it was a great day to get out into the warm April sun and get some much needed Vitamin D. Some of our team members made a family day out of it, bringing their children and pets along, to join in the fun.
Well done team for offering up your spare time for a greater good. We look forward to participating in the next event.
