VOX POP: MAKE A GREEN NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION

Vox Pop: Make a Green New Year’s Resolution
We all have a role to play in safeguarding the environment – but what are we doing to help out? Outlook speaks to four individuals and finds out more about their resolution and plans to protect the environment this coming New year.

Krista Grech, Valletta
What was your biggest environmental gaffe in 2011?
My biggest environmental mishap this past year would have to be the littering of cigarettes on the streets.
What is your New Year’s resolution to help the Environment in 2012?
I will work on the above issue for 2012 and therefore I will try to not  dispose of cigarettes on the road.

Sarah Formosa, Attard
What was your biggest environmental gaffe in 2011?
The biggest environmental gaffe that I face is that I often tend to forget to switch off the lights when I leave a room.
What is your New Year’s resolution to help the Environment in 2012?
The above is something that I need to address, so my New Year’s resolution would be to switch off the lights when I leave a room.

Louis Cutajar, St Lucija
What was your biggest environmental gaffe in 2011?
One of the biggest mishaps I have done this year was dispose of glass in the metal bin. It was a mistake but I noticed too late to do anything about it.
What is your New Year’s resolution to help the Environment in 2012?
In 2012 I will continue to recycle my waste. And I will also continue to be more careful in choosing items that are recyclable.

Raymond Abela, Fgura
What was your biggest environmental gaffe in 2011?
I am always very careful to protect the environment – I recycle and save electricity where I can as well as water and I try to walk as much as I can, thus avoiding my car.
What is your New Year’s resolution to help the environment in 2012?
As I have done this year, in 2012 I will continue to be as environmentally friendly as possible. I will also make it a point to recycle more and as much as possible, reduce waste.
