In a bid to raise awareness of their campaign "From plastics to microplastics", students from Our Lady Immaculate school Hamrun held a debate on the issue. A local TV presenter was invited to lead the debate, while speakers from various NGOs working on litter were invited to give their views. All students were given a reusable straw - thus making it possible to refuse straws when going out. On a different occasion a speaker from Birdlife spoke to year 4 and year 6 students about effects of plastic on the environment with special focus to birds.
As part of the same campaign, students have also eliminated use of disposable cups in the school - they urged the public to give them any mugs that they did not need - and now are fully supplied to cater to events without having to revert to disposables.
