that's sounds a great idea! why don't they have litter campaigns like they had in the fifties? I remember them well, and still cant even bring myself to throw a sweet wrapper away...I come home sometimes and clear out a bag that resembles a rubbish bin! the joke is my housekeeping is nowhere near as keen...
one campaign showed a living room all tidy, then people started dropping litter until it literally reached the ceiling, then a 'plummy' voiceover announced ' would you drop litter in your home?' well it worked on us working class kids in the fifties anyway!
Lots of litter in southwark comes from car drivers passing through.
we have a glut of take aways in Southwark, and all night shops which make the problem so much worse.
I tried to count the eating places just in the Old Kent Road
and gave up after fifteen!
