Following news reports of the terrible mess left by people on beaches, and the experience of many at lakes and rivers in the hot weather, I’ve been inspired to create this poster to help raise awareness of the issue more specifically at our treasured swimming spots.
I hate littering – always have, and it’s a perennial problem we swimmers face. We have enormous respect for the environment and the wildlife we share it with, and the for years we’ve organised regular litter picks. However the problem seems to be worsening and the pandemic seems to have incubated an epidemic in selfish behaviour. I simply had to do something, and this is what I do best.
The ‘Tosser’ campaign is nothing new and I can’t take credit for it. It’s believed to have originated in Australia, and it’s something Keep Britain Tidy, and many local authorities have utilised for some time. I felt there was no need to re-invent the wheel, but rather to try to amplify the single message. It’s such an effective slogan.
This artwork is NOT FOR PROFIT , the assets, including a printable PDF are available here to download for FREE and share. (All I ask for, is a credit).
Lets help spread the word and try to make littering a socially unacceptable thing to do!
