Day 31 and the last of my litter picks with #GBSpringClean. I cycled to Pentewan last week and was amazed how much #litter there was in this beautiful country lane adjoining the sea so today I put my panniers on and set out to clean it up. Most of the litter was food and drink related items casually thrown from car windows, cans,crisp packets, sweet wrappers, plastic bottles and takeaway food packaging.
I have realised that in my area, sites within 5-15 minutes of takeaway food outlets have the most waste. There seems to be a culture of eating whilst driving then throwing the packaging out of the window. Who does this? We have free waste collection, just take it home please.
31 days of litter picking, sometimes it has been difficult to fit in every day but one thing for sure I am guaranteed to find some wherever I go! It would be wonderful if everyone took some responsibility for picking it up, a bin is never far away and it would mean that tons of waste, especially plastic would not end up polluting our Oceans and killing marine life.
I will not stop litter picking and beach cleaning, just won’t be writing about it as much 😃🌊🌎
