5x5 challenge: for a cleaner environment

A number of stakeholders in the community have joined the 5x5Challenge to advocate for a cleaner, healthier environment for the wider benefit of our society. 

The initiative was launched just last month, aimed at encouraging the local community to engage in a sustainable lifestyle. 

What’s the 5x5Challenge all about?

Well, as an initiative of the Debono Group, the 5x5Challenge is sharing easy-to-apply tips on various aspects of everyday life. These tips vary from simple, super easy ideas to reduce energy consumption at home and planning daily chores to reduce the use of personal vehicles, to practical ways of recycling unwanted things at home, in innovative, decorative ways.

Among the organisations that have joined this campaign, sharing their own practical tips and experiences include Rota.mt, Project Aegle Foundation, Find the Door, Eco Market Malta and Casa Rocca Piccola.

Nicoletta Moss, who is spearheading the project from Debono Group’s end said: “whatever we do throughout our day, what we eat, how we travel, our shopping choices, all have an impact on our quality of life and that of those in our connected communities. I am truly encouraged by the initial response we have had in the first few weeks and the number of organisations and individuals that have come on board for this exciting journey.”

CEO of Debono Group, Geoffrey Debono said: “This initiative ties in perfectly with a key element of our company’s vision, which is to ensure that we always deliver positive change to the sectors in which we operate. As a multi-sectoral business, we are strongly committed to reducing our own environmental footprint, and we do so by improving energy efficiency, using resources responsibly, and reducing waste. I am proud that the Group is driving forward this Challenge as part of our continued commitment to our trusted customers and wider society at large.”

So, whats next?

As the next phase of the Challenge, the public is being invited to share their own practical tips and tricks, that contribute towards a cleaner, healthier lifestyle. Some giveaways have been lined up for the most innovative ideas shared on the Facebook and Instagram pages of the #5x5Challenge.
