Cutting Down Litter…

By writing children’s names on sweet wrappers, a Gloucestershire shopkeeper has cut down litter in her village by 40%. Yvonne Froud, 52, marks each wrapper, crisp packet and drinks container with the name of the buyer using an indelible marker.

Litter louts who drop their rubbish are shown the evidence and temporarily banned from her shop or told to go on a litter-pick, reported the Daily Mirror. Ollie Williams, eight, said: “I have to put the packet in the bin because it has my name on it.”
