A greener planet:
In April 2015, several Norwex senior executives travelled to Malta for the annual Global Managers meeting. During their time there, a reception was given in honor of Norwex Malta’s corporate sustainability efforts, including the recent creation and beautification of the first-ever reading garden in the area of Bir Miftuh in Gudja. In addition to the financial donation, Norwex helped transfer and plant 150 mature olive trees in the garden, with plans for another 30 trees to line a nearby jogging track.
Most of the trees planted are mature and not saplings,Luckily, I got to know that a property developer was about to uproot these mature olive trees and probably throw them away. We got in contact with the government, and with its help replanted all these trees. The cost of transportation and replanting was funded by Norwex.Joe Vella

The reading garden is located on a historic site shared by the oldest church in Malta, the Chapel of Santa Marija ta’ Bir Miftuh, built in 1430. It is equally accessible from surrounding villages as well as the Malta Airport, and it is expected to attract many visitors. Click here to watch the video celebrating the launch of this project.
