I don’t have too many pet peeves, but one of them is litter and trash. It just pisses me off as a taxpayer to pay to pick litter, it saddens me tremendously the amount of wildlife that are killed by litter and I am horrified by the total lack of respect of people toward the environment and disappointed by the lack of consideration of other people by people who litter and trash our earth and people’s property.
An avid follower of Steve’s Litter Scorecard, a new site just came to my attention called Litterati. Litterati is using Instagram to post images of litter throughout the world. I am going to be able to fill up their stream, the sheer amount of litter you see, avoid and walk everyday is amazing and using hopefully sites, like Litterati will bring attention to this global problem.
As they continue to build their community and gain more Instagram followers, the following numbers will change. I find it interesting the statistics. They also have a ‘impact’ page with a map, which pretty much details who is snapping those shots.
For those who are on Instagram, please follow them, post your pictures and lets try and clean up our world. I know, I will and as the San Diego beach trash cleaner, you will definitely see lots of litter from Southern California.
