Curia workers clean up on Environment Day


Fifty employees of the Archbishop’s Curia participated in a clean-up event at the Aħrax tal-Mellieħa on World Environment Day, June 5.

Employees spent nearly two hours cleaning up a large amount of trash, such as drink cans, plastic bags, plastic bottles, food wrappers and cigarette butts.

The waste was then placed in a specific location to be collected by the waste services.

“Littering is becoming a major problem in Malta. Moreover, it can have serious consequences on the environment, such as damaging the ecosystem. We hope that our small contribution to making Malta a better place will serve as an example to encourage others to leave the place clean when they go out and enjoy the Maltese landscape,” Rebecca Gatt, Director of Human Resources at the Curia of Malta Archbishop – Archdiocese of Malta, said.

This cleanup initiative was organized as part of the Archbishop’s Curia’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program to become more environmentally conscious and promote a cleaner environment. It was organized in collaboration with the local council of Mellieħa.
