The problem with litter isn’t just aesthetic. I’ve written before about the danger it causes wildlife, but today’s #OneADayInMay piece of rubbish illustrates yet another issue: drainage. Not only does litter get into drains and then potentially wash into rivers and other bodies of water, but it can easily causes blockages. Don’t we have enough to worry about with leaves, without adding rubbish to the mix?
And I couldn’t resist snapping just one more piece of litter today. I’ve found plenty of dog poo bags in my time, but this is perhaps the first time I’ve found dog treats left behind!
