As five brave Maltese swimmers gear up to swim the entire perimeter of Gozo as part of the ‘Wave of Change’, Lovin Malta was nominated by one of them to take up the plastic clean-up challenge ourselves.
And after that, we went ahead and nominated Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, President George Vella, and PN Leader Adrian Delia to do their part.
All the three need to do is go around Malta, preferably by the seaside, and pick up three pieces of trash, post the photo onto Facebook, and challenge three friends or companies to take part in the challenge.
‘Wave of Change’ is part of the growing local and international fight against single-use plastic that has gathered massive momentum over the past few years.
The group of athletes-turned-activists will swim a total of 35 kilometres and they’re aiming to get it done in under 11 hours. Neil Agius, Richard Zerafa, Andrew Azzopardi, Steven Grech and Hannah Cutajar will be taking on the #WaveofChange and making it a point to get to the finish line together.

Last year, Neil Agius, Gilbert Bartolo and Richard Zerafa took on the challenge of swimming around Malta in 24 hours. Neil was the only person to make it all the way around; swimming 70km in just under 22 hours.
