Litter: Costing the Earth



How is litter costing the Earth? Find out by listening to Chris Ledgard's podcast. Chris reports on anti-littering campaigns, from the litter ambassadors in the Swiss mountains, to litter enforcement officers in Wolverhampton. And he meets David Sedaris, a man dedicated to cleaning up the streets where he lives.


Litter is an important global issue. Chances are, you've seen litter scattered along roadsides, floating in waterways, or blowing across a park. The well-being of people, animals, and the environment is compromised by litter.


By coming together, we can tackle the problem. You can help too - simply get involved with this years World Cleanup Day. The day unites millions of volunteers, governments and organisations in 191 countries to tackle the global waste problem and build a sustainable world. Lets join our efforts again on 17th September for a waste-free world!
