There was a time when environmental issues were just a topic we brushed on in school. Now, the state of our planet is front and centre – because people are demanding that their leaders take action for our climate through policy and pledges.
But it’s not just up to our politicians to make the change – you and I can take a few conscious steps that make all the difference to Earth. Whether it’s opting for food with the least packaging when doing your weekly shop or ditching plastic bottles for a sleek metal one, there are thousands of little habits you can take on.
And in between the people and politicians playing tug-of-war on how to preserve the planet, there are those dedicated to walking the environment walk – like PT Matic.
PT Matic, which forms part of the Alberta group, is one of the island’s leading providers of environmental and waste handling services. From cleaning up emergency spills, decontamination, handling any hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams to the sanitisation of establishments to prevent COVID-19… you name it – they’re up for any environmental challenge.
Now they’re looking to you to do your part – and what better way to be rewarded for eco-conscious creativity than with a fantastic recycled prize – the world’s first and only recycled kayak made exclusively from marine litter and fishing industry waste!
Indeed, this isn’t just a kayak- it’s made entirely from waste collected from the sea.
With a sleek, black finish and a stable keeled hull (for those who know a thing or two about kayaks) this Calypso Beach is modern, fully outfitted, has plenty of storage, and is 100% made for summer adventures.
All you have to do to be in the chance to bag this upcycled baby is share your eco-conscious creations in the type form below. All we need is one image and your contact details. Simple!
Maybe you already have a quirky invention sitting proudly in your home or perhaps you gifted it to a friend or are bouncing ideas off others right now.
Whatever the case – put your green caps on and start creating!
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Retro flower pots
DIY lighting fixtures
Milk carton masks
Shabby chic outdoor furniture
There you go – I’ve gone and done some research for you. If none of these light that idea bulb, the internet is always your friend.
Think of it this way – you’re going to create a unique invention that will benefit you, might get you a brand new kayak and the planet won’t be harmed because of it.
And don’t worry – you don’t have to be the next Albert Einstein to win – but your dedicated effort won’t go unnoticed.
If you’re reading this, then the kayak competition is officially open and one lucky winner will be chosen on the 4th of September.
PT Matic is doing their part to keep Malta in tiptop eco-shape, and now, (whether you’re cruising along the coasts of Malta on that kayak or not) it’s your turn.
