immici Microfarms: building a better future for food and the planet in Malta

First of all, there are no pesticides in the plant crops and there are no excess heavy metals or microplastics in the seafood. Because immici uses aquaponics in both fresh and salt water, harmful chemicals would kill the fish, so the health of the system is the guarantee to our own health. The way aquaponics works is that when the fish are fed, their waste in the water is food for the plants. The plants take out these nutrients to thrive, and the fish get clean water...

Creating opportunities for Changemakers in Malta. Inspiring others to give and give well.

Malta Social Impact Awards 2021 The Malta Social Impact Awards was launched in 2016 by the Gasan Foundation and Inspirasia Foundation.

Our philosophy is that it takes more than money to create social change. Social purpose organisations need to be effective and efficient entities to generate and scale social change, and therefore we provide them with mentoring,...

10 years of Cruelty Free Malta

What does your business do? I am a cruelty-free lifestyle blogger. My aim is to help others transition to alternatives to animal-tested products, mainly in cosmetics. What did you do before? My full time was mostly related to web. I started as a web designer, moved on to product manager for an igaming company and last I worked as a user interface designer with the same igaming company. When did you open for business? CrueltyFreeMalta.com started around 10 years ago. Why did you chose this business? It started as a new year resolution where I challenged myself to start buying cosmetics from brands that do not support animal testing. Seeing that most of the brands I found at the time...
