Keep Britain Tidy (KBT) is launching a national anti-littering poster campaign which is being supported by outdoor advertising company, Clear Channel. As part of the Clean for the Queen campaign KBT asked primary school children across the UK to design an anti-litter poster and the winner was a collaborative effort from a class at a school in Lancashire. I really hope we see this on Clear Channel spaces (bus stops?) around St Albans because I’m constantly dismayed by how much litter is lying in alley ways and even front gardens in certain parts of our Great City.
I see so much litter when I am running and next week I’m going to tackle what I think could be one of the worst spots in St Albans. For now though, please be a hero: call out littering when you see it in action; bin your own rubbish and pick a bit of someone else’s up and bin it. When people see you picking up litter not only does it prick consciences, it may encourage others to pick a bit up too. We could have St Albans City & District clean in hours if we all worked together.
