Litter bugs in Barking and Dagenham should watch out as an environmental charity launches its annual Great Litter Count this week.They are just counting it, not clearing it up? Isn’t that the equivalent of those people who decorate dog mess with spray-on paint?
But no. Actually, it’s more sinister than that…
Keep Britain Tidy is asking the public to help it find out which brands are the most littered on our streets. Volunteers can count litter anywhere, at any time and can upload their results using an easy online form.Subject to no verification whatsoever. How scientific!
And the purpose? I mean, what do we care where the people who drop litter get it from in the first place?
With this information, the charity is aiming to work with the companies whose products are most often dropped on the ground to reduce waste left by their customers.Ah! Of course! Blaming the provider of the service, not the person who misuses that service.
It’s the progressive way!
