Not a Lot Of People Know this ?

Not a lot of people know?

These notice boards have been in my local forest for many years. They were so ahead of there time. I was told the local Community Council put them up what a great idea and so forwarding thinking.

It reads : That litter can last a long time in the environment.

Cigarette ends 1 – 5 years.

Aluminium cans – 500 years.

Glass bottles – 1000 years.

Plastic Bags – 10 to 20 years.

Plastic Containers – 30 years.

Orange or Banana peels – 2 years.

Plastic 6 can holders – 100 years.

Styrofoam will last indefinitely.

Now that you know please take your litter home.

Scotland is Beautiful lets keep it that way.

Great thoughts !
