Double the Wave

It’s time to Double the Wave!

Do you remember the Wave of Challenge to ‘Pick up 3 pieces of Plastic’?

If you heard the news, Neil Agius (link to website) is attempting to smash a new World Record to swim the longest open water swim ever attempted. He’ll be crossing two continents, from Africa to Europe.

So we’re Doubling the mission too: pick up 6 pieces of plastic from our local areas AND take up a physical activity every day- be it walking, swimming, running or taking your dog for a stroll.

Double the mission, double the fun!

Together, we’re aiming to pick up 1 million pieces of plastic from our LOCAL AREAS by end of Summer 2021 and make a Wave of Change Across Malta and Gozo.

If Neil can swim 153 km in under 60 hours, can we all support him by picking up 6 pieces of plastic and getting active. Contribute to cleaner and healthier today and tomorrow.

This Swimming Record has been attempted and failed 3 times already. We will not fail. Not the swim and not to reach 1 million pieces of plastic that we collect and stop from entering our seas over Summer 2021. But we need everyone to get behind and join in.

How to Take Action
