ニュース:Cigarette butts littering UK beaches doubled in 2012, figures show(The Guardian)

2013年05月15日 カテゴリ:海外

The number of cigarette butts littering UK beaches doubled last year, while other rubbish from smoking including lighters and packets increased by 90%, according to a survey that raises that concerns anti-littering campaigns are failing to make an impact.

Plastic rubbish including sweet and lolly wrappers also rose by 3% in 2012 compared with 2011, the annual count of litter on UK beaches in the Marine Conservation Society's (MCS) beachwatch big weekend showed.

Almost two-thirds (65%) of the total litter recorded was made of plastic, with unidentified scraps of plastic topping the table for the most commonly found litter. On average, 75 drink bottles were found for every thousand yards of beaches surveyed.

The MCS said it was concerned that so much rubbish was plastic and would be unlikely to break down.
