Why is it in this day and age, people continue to drop litter without a care in the world or without consideration to others?
Recently, I watched a football match in my home town of Ammanford, a place where the locals are blessed with a beautiful big recreation ground that facilitates several football pitches and a cricket pitch. And yet, when the players and spectators leave, there are huge amounts of crisp packets, pop bottles and empty cans strewn across the field. A few more strategically-placed bins wouldn’t go amiss either – as there seems to be only one bin in the whole area!
Picture the scene: you call round to a friend’s house for a cuppa and a few biscuits, you wouldn’t throw the empty biscuit packet on their lounge carpet before you went home, would you?
Do we not care enough about the environment anymore? Are we oblivious to it all? Or is it just the fact that we are too blooming lazy and it is someone else’s job to pick it all up?
Let’s start taking responsibility for our own mess, each and every one of us. Don’t even get me started on a whole bag of rubbish being launched out of a car window from a certain fast food chain . . . McDisgusting!
