Isn't it pointless to pick up litter once a year?
ICCS is NOT just about picking up litter. It is about educating people and collecting data about the litter on our shores. After spending an hour logging data on litter, I have stopped using straws. It seems pointless to use something for a few minutes then throw it away. Anyone above the age of 2 doesn't need to suck a drink!
