During the last few days my husband and I have been driving South through countryside that should be looking at its best with all the Spring flowers and trees coming into leaf.  However, what we have been looking at has been mile after mile of litter – mostly plastic. 

I am totally depressed and very annoyed.  Britain looks like a huge dump.  What has happened that people feel it is alright to just toss litter from their cars?

When I was growing-up in Australia [more years ago than I care to mention], the Australian countryside looked a little like this.  However, the Government introduced large fines and conducted a huge programme in the schools and the media to educate Australians to take their litter home with them and dispose of it there.

I know, this is not completely connected to the Banchory bags Campaign, but plastic bags were a large part of the roadside litter I have been looking at and I feel that we have to hope that more towns are inspired to try to go Plastic Bag Free.
