Dirty Truths about Littering

It’s astonishing to think that 3 out of every 4 people have admitted to creating litter in the past 5 years, with people aged 18-34 the most likely to litter.

It’s frightening to contemplate, but that’s the harsh reality that we have created for ourselves through our attitude to littering. Discovering these sort of statistics has really woken me up to the urgent need to take action, which begins by educating others as to the poisonous consequences of litter.

Here’s an infograpfic from https://www.cleaningservicesgroup.co.uk/ that shows what recycling does. It’s more than throwing in a bin.
