Way to go, guys! Zibel Malta, together with Raniero’s Adventures, No To Plastic Malta and a number of volunteers are absolute legends, having cleaned up the popular northern beach of Paradise Bay.

“2020 clean-up season has officially kicked-off, with what we consider our toughest and most rewarding cleanup to date,” Zibel announced on socials. “5+ hours of hard work, with the help of 100+ divers, snorkel and coastal volunteers, we managed to collect 3092.78kg/3.09 tonnes of waste.” YAS!

“Although Paradise Bay is far from spotless, it’s definitely better than we found it,” they shared. “So to all those that helped out, THANK YOU! You’re the best,” they shared, thanking all those who joined the cleanup.

The day was pretty successful, with the overall breakdown of the waste collected as follows: 175kg of recyclable ocean plastic, 27kg of recyclable ocean plastic bottles, 25.85kg of glass, 19.48kg of metal, 286.03kg of general waste, 101.5kg of tyres, 347.54kg of fishing gear, together with 2105kg of bulky waste and 5.38kg of bottle caps.

Keep up the great work!

The term ‘drag queen’ is pretty well known (thank you Ru Paul’s drag race!) but how about ‘drag king’? Well, it’s about to get a whole lot more popular as Malta welcomes award-winning show Joan!
