Plastic Poppy Litter

Img 0832

Earlier this week, we did one of our favourite walks up to Swyre Head at Kingston, and I’m pleased to say that it was as litter-free as I’ve ever seen it. We picked up just a handful of litter, and the most common thing we found was plastic poppy debris from the RAF war memorial. We pick up a lot of poppy litter, particularly in the weeks following Remembrance Day. The Royal British Legion have stated, “We believe that by 2020, we will be in a position to introduce either a bio-degradable or compostable poppy”, so I look forward to seeing an improvement this November. Watch this space.
