SAY NO TO PLASTIC BAGS
Instead bring your own!
A cloth one is good as it is lightweight, can be washed and lasts a long time.
BOTTLE YOUR OWN WATER
Buy your own non-plastic water containers, choose your design, remember to take it with you!
REQUEST PLASTIC-FREE PACKAGING
Choose loose veg, buy from bulk food outlets, refuse polystyrene packed take-aways, use your own containers where possible.
SKIP PLASTIC STRAWS
Refuse taking one in a take-away, festival, bar or cafe. Instead do without or bring your own!
AVOID PLASTIC CUTLERY
Do not pick it up! Instead bring your own washable re-usable set when out and about.
People invented plastic and are millions of products from it, but they did not think ahead about it's disposal and how it is creating environmental / wildlife catastrophes.

PICK UP LITTER
Think of a personalised motto which will motivate you for the sake of wildlife such as:
"If I don't pick this up it could end up fed to an Albatross"
"If I don't pick this up it could drown a Bumble Bee"
"If I don't pick this up it could strangle a Seal."
Carry a spare bag with you to put the litter in. Recycle what you can.
Dispose of the rest responsibly.
Remember that the small pieces can also be lethal. Pick up at least 5 pieces a day.
Join a Litter Pick! (also a good way to meet like-minded people and enjoy working together).
Teach children by example, explain why.
The short time it takes you to collect some litter could save untold suffering and is helping to keep our earth, land, sea, mountains beautiful!
DON'T BE TEMPTED TO DROP LITTER!
When people drop litter they are clearly not thinking as to what will become of it. The mentality can only be one of:
'out of sight, out of mind'
'someone else can clear up after me' or
'the earth is my rubbish bin'
And yet that litter frequently does untold harm, even each traps to wildlife, such as:
the empty can attracts insects who are attracted by the smell of whatever was in it. They slither in and drown in the dregs of the drink and more follow
an empty crisp packet fills up with rainwater. Then a bumble bee flies into it or beetles crawl into it, attracted by the smell, gets trapped and drowns
cigarette ends are toxic to wildlife especially if they end up in water.

Humans are just 0.01% of all life but
have destroyed 83% of wild mammals
Farmed poultry today makes up 70% of all birds
on the planet, with just 30% being wild
Of all the mammals on Earth, 96% are livestock
and humans, only 4% are wild mammals
countryside wildlife and insect loss from new roads, housing, supermarkets, factories, offices and other ongoing development
agribusinesses, palm oil and mining companies favour production over protection of habitat and wildlife
mined, stripped, fracked, drilled, cut, bled, unsetting natural eco-systems + landscapes, degrading and destroying habitats
monoculture crops, grazing animals takes over a lot of land, bottom trawling destroys everything on the sea bed, over-fishing, other species harvested than intended catch
habits are completely destroyed and cannot be replaced short of reversing the process
Bring wildlife under your radar! Support how wildlife has a right to be free, treated kindly and left alone in a habitat which is clean, intact, not trashed, kept in balance.
Always think about the consequences your actions will or may have in the future e.g. "If I don't pick this up it could end up in the ocean, be fed to a sea bird chick and cause it to starve to death"
