Litter more than just an eyesore

Littering has an economic, legal and environmental impact.

Tourists do not like to visit littered places, it gives the impression of neglect.

Many amazing tourist destina­tions all over the world have been ruined by trash, causing less tourists to visit.

It is a loss to the tourism industry, which could have lead to the creation of jobs. Did you know this about litter­ing?) Litter causes accidents, for example when a driver has to swerve the vehicle to avoid trash, or drive over a broken glass bottle causing damage to the tyres.) Littering is illegal.) Places with high littering are often riddled with crime, less value on homes and property and are more likely to be the site of fires.) Millions of taxpayers’ money are spent on cleaning litter.

  • The main causes of littering are laziness, bins being dirty and already overflowing, and ignorance, people do not realise the effects of littering.) Litter kills plants and animals.) Cigarette buds take ten years to decompose and make up over half of the littered objects.) The most common littered objects are fast food packaging, paper, aluminium, glass and plastic.
  • Litter hampers economic development. When new businesses look for a dynamic growing community where their business can grow, they stay away from littered areas. ) Reducing litter is a three-step process: stop littering, pick up litter and report littering. – conserve-energy­future.com
