How to become a litter hero

2019-02-07 06:01

THE huge strides we need to take to create the clean parks, beaches and streets we all want to see, is made up of small individual steps, picking up a single piece of litter could be your first step.

How can you become a litter hero?

  • Produce less waste and choose products that have minimal packaging or are recyclable or biodegradable.

. REFUSE what you don’t need

. REDUCE what you do need

. REUSE what you already have

. RECYCLE what you cannot refuse, reduce, or reuse

  • When you go shopping take your own cloth shopping bag
  • Say no to the straw, invest in a bamboo straw that you can wash and reuse
  • The next time you walk anywhere and spot a piece of litter on the ground, in a bush or on a bench, grab it and bin it but remember to keep it safe and clean!
  • Take part in community clean-ups, and if there isn’t one planned, organise one yourself. – Issued: WILD HORSES
