Don’t be a lit­ter­bug and make sure you pick up your rub­bish

The National - News - - OPINION -

With re­gards to your story Why plog­ging is the so­cial me­dia fit­ness craze that needs to catch on in the UAE (Jan­uary 3), it turns out I was cool with­out even know­ing it.

I even pick up rub­bish when I am out at sea pad­dle­board­ing. I agree that peo­ple need to be taught how to dis­pose of rub­bish prop­erly.

Pam Du­rant, Dubai

I was do­ing it with­out even know­ing it was an ex­er­cise. I pick up lit­ter for the sake of our pub­lic spa­ces and beaches.

Marisa Zanella, Dubai

Lit­ter­ing is an epi­demic in this coun­try. There is an as­sump­tion from some peo­ple that there will be some­one who will pick up after you. Fines for lit­ter­ing, en­forced by the po­lice, would help. Ed­u­ca­tion and a change of mind­set are the only way to change bad habits.

Neil Squibs, Abu Dhabi
