GreenPak Coop Society, in coordination with GSD Marketing Ltd (GSDM), is leading a campaign on sustainable use of plastic bottles and the increasing importance of recycling "WE need to recycle more and even more. We are urging the public to crush their empty plastic bottles for recycling and stop contributing to plastic waste," said GreenPak's CEO Ing Mario Schembri. During the beach campaign held at Ghadira last Sunday, GSDM and GreenPak staff members distributed free Kristal water and encouraged the people present at the beach to crush and recycle their plas- tic bottles in the appropriate recycling bins, after they drink the water content. GSDM together with Green- Pak members explained to consumers who were on the beach the importance of reduc- ing plastic littering especially in the sea, and to recycle more. Three collection points were set up on the bay equipped with bottle crushers. Those who crushed their plastic bottles re- ceived a branded keychain with the 'Crush Plastic Bottles' mes- sage. 'Crush Plastic Bottles' focuses on the need to reduce plastic pollution, optimise space in re- cycling bags and increase col- lection rates of plastic bottles. Crushing plastic bottles for recycling brings awareness on the need to stop littering and increase resource use. ''We have been promoting re- sponsible disposal of our pack- aging with consumers for many years and the vision for our business is simple: our packag- ing is a valuable resource and we continuously strive to en- sure that most of our packag- ing is recovered after use and recycled. As a company, we are constantly working to increase recycling as well as champion continuous improvement for the recovery of packaging'' said George Douglas Saliba, Public Affairs and Communications Manager of GSD Marketing Ltd. "As Malta is already facing some serious landfill issues, we are optimistic that the 'Crush Plastic Bottles' campaign serves to reduce plastic litter- ing across Malta and Gozo, and encourages the public to take positive action and reduce waste sent to landfills," added Ing Schembri. GreenPak and GSDM members distributed free Kristal water and explained to consumers on the importance of reducing plastic litter and to recycle more Iceland's secret to healthy living now available in Malta SK YR, a remarkable dairy product unique to Iceland, has recently been launched in Malta. An innovative product for the local market, skyr has the consistency of strained yogurt but a much milder f lavour. It has been a part of Icelandic cuisine for over a thousand years and is tradi- tionally served cold with milk and a topping of sugar. The Vikings introduced skyr to Iceland some 1,100 years ago and for centuries, it formed a cornerstone of the national diet, helping to keep people strong in living conditions that were often harsh. On family farms coun- trywide, it was the women who nurtured this dairy and passed on both the recipe and the original Icelandic skyr cultures from mother to daughter. It was some of these very same women, recipients of their mothers' expertise, who, around 90 years ago, taught Icelandic dairy scien- tists the art of skyr-making. Isey Skyr builds on this re- markable legacy. The basic recipe and the use of origi- nal cultures to ferment the skimmed milk remain the same. Protein rich, fat-free, creamy and delicious, Isey Skyr is as relevant to con- sumers today as it was centu- ries ago. Made with more than three times the amount of milk that goes into typical yo- ghurts, Isey Skyr ensures an exceptionally high level of protein. It is available natural as well as in three f lavours: strawberry, blueberry and va- nilla, with the latter also be- ing carb-free, in convenient single serve 170g pots with a spoon, making it the perfect snack for healthy, on-the-go lifestyles. Isey Skyr is imported, mar- keted and distributed by Quintano Foods Limited, a member of the Farsons Group, and can be found in all leading outlets in Malta & Gozo. Visit www. for more information.
