A note about Litter

Litter - just thinking about it makes me go Grrrrrrr.


Just read a review of a book about litter called "Litter:How other peoples rubbish shapes out lives" by Theodore Dalrymple in which the reviewer quotes the following line from the book:

"Britons now drop litter as cows defecate in a fields, or snails leave a trail of slime. That is to say, they do it naturally, without conscious reflection"

BFTF thinks that the UK is actually a pretty clean place, but the phrase above certainly strikes a chord and one wonders whether it might be a powerful statement to mention to those who litter without thinking.
