discarded toothpicks-gross

We have just go back and I could't believe the amount of discarded tooth picks, the ones with a plastic handle and floss across them. They were everywhere, on the Disney buses, in the bus stops, outside Longhorn and Cracker barrel, we even saw one in the sand in Typoon Lagoon... what is wrong with people? - just had to vent as it really got to us.

Good heavens. I use these Plackers as I struggle with just floss. It wouldn't cross my mind to put them anywhere other than the bin. Weird people about.

I agree. Its as though some people think its not their responsibility to help keep our environment clean & tidy. Somebody else will sort it out.

Thats disgusting.

Good news here in Scotland though (and to be rolled out next year in the rest of the UK) is that the sale and manufacture of plastic stemmed cotton buds is now banned. They were being flushed down the toilets and ending up in the sea.

Im always really surprised and a little confused by posts like this (not a criticism by the way). We got back three weeks ago and never saw anything like this and we went to several of the places mentioned. So, either they were there and we didnt notice them or its just started happening. It cant all be one person so why have loads of people suddenly started leaving their toothpicks everywhere? Its bizarre!
