Announcement | 4th Ring Road, Enjoy the Ride... | ...الدائري الرابع ، تمتع بالرحلة - Part 3

It is so easy to walk through life, some of us racing through, without having to take any consequences for our actions. I’m not talking about the major things, like murdering someone – I’m hoping most of us don’t go around murdering people (sorry Mr. Mass Murderer, this obviously does not include you), but this is really about the smaller things we do without giving it a second thought.

A major problem that has plagued Kuwait for a long time is litter, especially when the weather is nicer and the beaches and grass areas are crawling with people, playing games, barbequing, eating snacks and having all sorts of fun activities. However, walking onto one of those beaches after the merrymakers have packed up and left, it is quite shocking to see the sight that is left behind.

These are some of the items that have reportedly been found on the beach in the past: pampers (usually used), glass bottles (broken and otherwise), cigarette butts, needles (I don’t even want to know how), plastic bags, leftover food, empty food packaging, firework shells and other rubbish and litter.

Is this a flaw in our society? Are we so selfish that when we go out for a picnic, we can’t fathom the thought of using some of those empty plastic bags and filling them with our own rubbish and throwing it at the nearest bin? Or is it because we’re lazy? I just don’t understand it, people are perfectly capable of cleaning up after themselves to keep our beaches and parks (the few we have) clean and hygienic.

After hearing of what has been found on the beaches, I am worried to encourage families to go there! Needles and glass are the main cause of concern, not only does it encourage injury, but allows diseases to be spread with ease, aside from the hygiene and injury issue, it is just about respecting the environment, and ensuring that we can enjoy it at the very least in its current state for years to come.

In light of this, Keep Kuwait Clean has organized a beach cleanup on the 3rd of April 2010. The main purpose of this is primarily to increase awareness of the situation that exists, and in the process have at least one beach clean for our use.

This isn’t about miracles, it’s not about changing the world, it’s not about revolutionary results, and it’s not about expecting all of Kuwait to be litter-free. This is about encouraging individuals to think about personal behavior, it’s about a pausing for a second to reconsider when about to litter, it’s about gathering support for the cause, it’s about taking one small step at a time in order to make a difference.

Please take a step in the right direction and come support the Keep Kuwait Clean Team on Saturday the 3rd of April 2010, at 4 pm, on the beach next to TGI Fridays. We are also on facebook so any further details be needed can be found there.

The more individuals that take a step forward, the more others will take notice; every single person makes a difference.

Come make a difference,

The Keep Kuwait Clean Team

On the night of 22nd March, the Animal Friends League of Kuwait’s shelter in Wafra sustained a major fire. Many of the animals are dead or missing. The entire main building is damaged and many parts are destroyed. They need your help! The most important thing now, once they have cleared up and assessed the damage, is to start rebuilding without delay so they can continue the important work they do. Any donation, big or small will help them to do this. Please call 9737 7867 to make a donation

Earth Hour is a global event organized by WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature, also known as World Wildlife Fund) and is held on the last Saturday of March annually, asking households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and other electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change.


Excuse our laziness for the past couple of days, it was a long weekend which all the 4th Ring Crew and we’re sure you guys too were looking forward to, and with all the crazy things that happened in this vacation and people being out of the country having a good time the blog took a side step and rested for a while because it needed some rest and so did the writers… so in the end we want to thank all the people who emailed us and contacted us and tell them we were just on a break and come Tuesday everything will be back to normal once again!

Peace Out!

Today is the day everyone .. the day for what you ask ? Well .. Today is the day we here at 4thringroad will take a few minutes to write about (and describe) the level of utter incompetency presented by none other than our beloved and reputable customs officers at the Kuwait Ports Authority (a.k.a. “el jamarek”). To cut a long story short, here is a summary of the incident :

A friend of mine passed by julai3a to have dinner at chocolate macaroon, it turned out all the restaurants there are shut by the Municipality (baladia) including burger king, pizza hut etc…… i hope they find a quick solution to their problem because it is a great place to go to. The last time the baladia closed down Starbucks Rahal and they still didn’t open it. So I hope they open these because I’m fed up of eating fast food in the chalet and chocolate macaroon was a welcome change.
