People are being urged not to leave litter on beaches or public spaces, after spending time in the sun today.
North Dorset MP Simon Hoare says sun-seekers should treat it as they do their own streets, after pictures of litter being left yesterday.
The MP suspects some of those leaving items will have kids who've been taught in schools about plastic pollution in oceans.
I wonder how many of these unthinking selfish people would contact their MPs about marine pollution or moan to their Council if their street was filthy with rubbish or possibly have children who’ve done projects on effects of plastics in our seas? https://t.co/wR0jYGgZgR— Simon Hoare MP (@Simon4NDorset) June 25, 2020
I’m afraid if their behaviour requires demonisation then so be it. We can’t/shouldn’t stand idly by while our county is defaced by senseless, selfish people and that applies to those who live here as much as visitors https://t.co/ZSXfNhgwqo— Simon Hoare MP (@Simon4NDorset) June 25, 2020
12 tonnes of rubbish left on Bournemouth beach yesterday. People had even defecated in burger boxes & left on beach. We are creating a pandemic & pollution hell on Earth #Covid19UK #plasticpollution pic.twitter.com/FoYcvligF1— dominic dyer (@domdyer70) June 25, 2020
