Litter and waste. Time to get tough on everyone from the individual up to the corporation and country

I posted this a year ago and the scene was exactly the same a few years ago. Somebody, despite the notice saying not to do it, couldn’t be bothered to take home what they wanted to donate to the charity shop because it was closed. In my book that makes them a litterer and they should pay a fine for having “dumped” their rubbish. Then of course somebody desperate, much more desperate than the people who had dumped the material outside the charity shop, came along and scattered the donated goods.

January 2021

Let’s make 2021 the year that we also ask for the people responsible for the state of the planet pay. In the UK there seems to be little that’s done against those individuals, criminals, organisations or even our country. What do I mean by that? The microplastic pollution is out there. It covers every part of our environment and it appears to be in most living organisms including us. The corona virus is making it far worse with discarded face masks filling our landscapes, seas and oceans. Since this waste is potentially very dangerous those who discard it need to face the proper penalties and it needs to be taken for the serious problem that it is. First we need to catch the individuals. If we do what would be a suitable punishment? How about a week street cleaning and the street cleaner gets a week off? Fly tippers? Well that should carry heavy fines and a prison sentence for repeat offenders. That might already happen but we obviously don’t catch enough of them. Corporations? We need to protest to our governments to make them pay heavily for using non recyclable materials. Governments? We must stop 1st world governments dumping our waste on 3rd world countries. A government that does this is no better than an illegal fly tipper. OK, I’m being frivolous but we need to start somewhere. Waste, especially plastic based waste, is something that needs to be taken far more seriously than it is.
