Building a Hotel from Trash

I saw this story on television, now it has made it to print. This trend of constructing buildings from trash should continue.

Building Houses from Trash

I’ve always wondered if this could be done from the scraps I find on the roadside. And yes, a Texas builder is building homes from trash at very low prices. I love it.

Dogs Don’t Litter

I love this letter from the timesofmalta.com. How true!

Why no dogs when humans litter more?

Anthea Peschel, Sliema

I get so confused when I go to places like parks and gardens or even beaches. The signs say “No dogs” and I ask why! Why do people complain so about animals?

They should actually say “no humans” as I see more human litter and rubbish in these parks, gardens and beaches, actually everywhere. Why shouldn’t dogs be allowed to have a nice walk or swim with their owners? Their waste could easily be picked up but human litter isn’t.

This weekend my partner and I went for a walk in a local park and all we could see was unwanted shoes, fans, bottles and a mattress hidden behind a tree. So I ask: Why are dogs not allowed in and why are humans allowed to litter? It makes no sense at all.

Another disgrace was in Delimara next to the beach: a whole carpet of plastic and broken glass bottles and unwanted rubbish such as car tyres and seats. Which will all be dragged into the sea in the rough weather. So this is all allowed but dogs are not allowed in parks! Ridiculous, if I may say.

Litter in Ireland

I read this morning that 45% of litter in Ireland is cigarette wastes. If smokers would dispose of their cigarettes properly, litter would drop dramatically there.

Those British!

Since I’m mostly unemployed and I pick up litter, I find this story in the Mirror intriguing. The new Tory government will make the unemployed pick up litter for their dole.

I would love to be paid to pick up litter because it is the right thing to do.

No Trash Left Behind

I’m envious of this couple who only have trash about once a year.
