Many are those left feeling proud and inspired by swimmer Neil Agius’ record-breaking 130-kilometre swim from Linosa to Malta earlier this week, drawing much needed attention to his cause: plastic waste in the sea.

The local business community have also taken note, with several leaders celebrating Neil’s tenacity and spirit. Martina Zammit, CEO at Gadgets is among them, sharing her belief that “Neil Agius’ legacy will have a lasting effect for many years to come.”

In a social media post celebrating the swimmer’s incredible feat, the Gadgets CEO maintains that Neil “is doing so much more than breaking world records. He is inspiring a shift in mentality that will span generations and hopefully last well into our future.”

Drawing from the athlete’s inspiring legacy in support of his cause, Ms Zammit adds that “one person can make a difference, but he or she cannot do so alone”, affirming that if we were all to take up the challenge of collecting six plastic items from our environment, “the Maltese population alone has the potential to pick up at least 2.4 million pieces of plastic.”

More importantly, she continues, “we have the responsibility to fight plastic pollution by saying no to single-use plastic that is killing millions of seabirds and animals.”

May Neil’s impressive undertaking continue to have a positive impact by inspiring all to come together in the fight against plastic pollution.
