Litter is a form of pollution. It is an eye sore; if ingested by animals it can cause them pain and death; if it blocks drains it can cause flooding; if it blows into streams and rivers it can be ingested by fish etc. Overtime plastic waste breaks down into smaller particles which pollutes both air and water and which is already being found within the metabolism of humans and creatures.
25th March – 10th April is dedicated to the Great British Spring Clean when participants are encouraged to go out and pick up litter. Why not give it a go?
