Litter of any kind is abhorrent. I particularly detest litter resulting from single use plastic bottles. My intense dislike of inappropriately disposed single use plastic bottles (and single use plastic of any kind) stem from the havoc creates well beyond the immediate environment, when it finds its way into the sea.
For the above reason, I could not resist re-posting bits of this excellent article on litter by Francesca Williams of the BBC:
We threaten litter louts with fines and demand councils install extra bins and clean the streets more often. But what if, instead, every person who saw a discarded crisp bag, can or cigarette packet just picked it up? Would that be the end of the world?
American writer and humorist David Sedaris admits to being “obsessed” with picking up rubbish – sometimes for whole afternoons at a time.
He does it so much the council in Horsham, West Sussex, where he now lives, has named a refuse truck after him.
“People will pull their children close when I pass,” he laughs.
His litter-picking exploits make entertaining radio and, in January last year, led to him being invited before a parliamentary select committee to give evidence.
