Love it! So proud of my mate @earlizards who cares enough about her local area that she bought a litterpicker off Amazon and trawls the neighborhood picking up trash. A very wholesome way to spend her mat leave!! Her best find to date is a bra, the best find today was an old Fifa disc for Xbox.
Hi, we are @litterpicture, we will be photographing all of the litter we find while out and about. All of the litter we photograph we have re-homed to a bin near by or taken home to be recycle when necessary! Please follow to join us on our endeavour to clean up and inspire others to do so! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Spot the odd one out.. and the only one that should be there! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A. 🍂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ B. 🍫⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ C. 🥏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (C, is the closest emoji we could find to a bottle cap 😅)
Concept for a picture book: This does not belong here. . What is this that I see? What is this that is up? A fire hose nozzle but what’s with this cup? 🚒 . A cigarette packet, snug amongst the leaves. It doesn’t belong here, one of my pet peeves. 🚬 . A six pack ring found in a ferry boat sink. Drains lead to the ocean is all I can think. ⛴ . A spiky stick bush, but what’s not okay? The next cup jammed in, this ones’s McCafe. 🥤 . A straw in the gutter, on the way to the sea. It doesn’t belong here, it’s so plain to me. 🌊 . Thanks for indulging my rubbish poetry. All littered items were picked up and disposed of properly. Sometimes when people litter “creatively” I really wonder what runs through their minds. 🙃 . Most of these were mere steps away from a bin. The incentives to not litter clearly aren’t high enough. This is why I hold brands at least partly accountable, I don’t think it’s enough for a company to produce trash and expect consumers will do the right thing. We need to use environmentally safe materials because of the litter that escapes and because of people who will never care. . With the exception of the straw, these were all clearly deliberately placed by someone. I can only imagine people do this because they don’t see it as their problem to deal with. But we all share this planet. It’s a shared problem. . With cigarette packets, I assume the litterer is inured to littering because they drop their butts all over the place. With cups I find people often leave them on top of things so they probably feel like they aren’t “truly” littering. . All the trash that I find, in ocean or city, it doesn’t belong there, and my poems aren’t witty.* 🗑 . #litterati#litterpicking#trashtag#waronplastic#2minutestreetclean#saynotosingleuseplastic#noexcuseforsingleuse#ipickeditup#plogging#rubbishpoetry#styrofoamsucks @mcdonalds #isthisyours *yes I could have gone elsewhere with this rhyme 😂
