What is litter and what does litter mean to us? Litter is a little or a lot of rubbish that people throw on the ground without thinking where it will go. So much of our food is wrapped in paper or plastic and when it’s left around it doesn’t look nice or be good for our environment.

Litter and plastic ends up in the sea and animals can eat it and die. We saw a picture of a seagull with plastic inside it. This is very sad. If I controlled everyone on earth I’d make them collect rubbish every day. Did you know that fish eat microplastics (tiny pieces) because overtime plastic breaks down into the size of plankton or krill and they think it is food. Many sea animals like seals and whales eat this!! This cannot be good for them or us. Stop littering!

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is 1.6 mill square kilometers of plastic. If GOD gave me one wish – I’d wish for every piece of plastic to be gone. I think God gave us our world, so actually we should clean it up so all the animals, plants and people can live safely.
