So much litter!

I love Easter time! There is so much going on, we are spoiled for choice. What should we start with look after our environment! Pollution, it has been a growing problem for many years.

I love Easter time! There is so much going on, we are spoiled for choice. What should we start with - look after our environment!Pollution, it has been a growing problem for many years. I do agree with the lady who wrote about wasted street lights and what an awful effect it is having on our environment for future generations. A grave concern. Surely we are all responsible for the planet.I liked Purple Love Week in Honiton. It was such a great success. Maybe, the message has come through that we must all continue to support our town. Promoting all local trade can only bring good cheer for everyone concerned.I would also like to congratulate all who have ditched the plastic bags - there is a steady decline all over the country. We still have a long way to go, but we have made a great start and a difference.Let's put the gloom and doom behind us now. Just make the most of what we have. I am so thankful for everything.Last, but not least, I went for a walk in our beautiful countryside, or so I thought!Sadly, there was so much litter everywhere - takeaway boxes, plastic bottles, crisp packets, etc. I am assuming most of which is thrown from moving cars!Why can't people be more caring about our environment? What a legacy we are leaving for future generations.Maybe, people don't realise how blessed they are to live in this beautiful part of England or, maybe, they just don't care! Help save our planet.Mrs I JeevesStone Close Woodhill View Honiton
