10 ideas for sustainable Christmas gifts on a budget

Christmas is a beautiful time of the year. All the decorations, lights, Christmas music on every corner and the presents…oh, the presents. I myself am not very keen on receiving them, but I love when I can make someone happy with a personalized gift. Even though it is a beautiful tradition to endow each other, it is also creating a big demand for things that lot of times we buy as presents and eventually, they end up in trash...

Is Oat Milk Milk?

When I was younger, I used to wonder why there was such a thing as a veggie burger. Why try to make vegetables something that they are not? And what’s up with soya milk? Why call something that is not milk, milk? It turns out that this line of thought is actually quite popular; so much so that the European Union wanted to pass laws about it, the outcome of which being that plant-based burgers and sausages can still be labelled...

VeggyMalta & Friends of the Earth Malta ask MEPs to vote for healthy and sustainable diets

The European Parliament next week will be deciding how European citizens can call vegan food products like veggie burgers, veggie sausages, steak and others. Plant based products would need to be called disks, patties or tubes. The excuse being put forward by MEPs is that people are not mature and intelligent enough to know the difference between a veggie burger and a meat burger and can be misled. If these amendments pass, it will...

36 Easy ways to reduce waste in everyday life

The waste we produce has a big impact on our lives and the environment we live in. Especially in a small island like this, disposing of waste is becoming more and more difficult. Ever since I’ve become a vegetarian, I started to be more aware of my impact on the planet. I started to notice how much plastic wrapping material I throw away every day. That made me count. There’s almost 8 billion people in the world now and if...

Help a vegan hospital worker and a vegan restaurant

Times are hard. We have essential workers working in hospitals who are risking their lives in order to keep us safe. In exchange for this, those who want to be kind not just to people but also other animals are not provided a vegan meal by some hospitals. On the other hand we have vegan restaurants who are at risk of bankruptcy because people are not going out to eat and must rely on deliveries in order to stay afloat. Both of these...

Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscars speech in full

And this form of expression has given me the most extraordinary life. I don’t know where I’d be without it. But I think the greatest gift that it’s given me, and many people in [this industry] is the opportunity to use our voice for the voiceless. I’ve been...
