Sometimes it’s important to have a conversation about litter!
We’re blessed in Perth to not have a huge littering problem like some other cities where their streets or banks of rivers line the streets.
Currently 40% of the worlds litter sadly, is plastic. It is a major problem, and also a major offence under law too!
So to help us be a part of the litter solution, passionate environmentalist and Senior Pastor of Riverview Church, Tim Healy, has two great ways to go about it:
1. Become a litter collector
Starting to see the world you traverse as an opportunity to clean as you go is an everyday, easy solution to combat litter. Whether you’re going for a run down at the park, or a walk on the beach, you have the simple choice to bend down and clean up as you go!
2. Become a litter reporter
You can actually report littering, especially if you know of a regular offender, to organisations like Keep Australia Beautiful.
