We all have a responsibility to reduce pollution by helping to prevent litter and flytipping in Scotland. Not only is it an eyesore, ruining Scotland's natural beauty, but it also impacts on our wildlife and marine environments.
What is pollution?
The way we currently produce, consume and dispose of materials is damaging our environment by creating waste and harmful gases. We need to find new ways to prevent waste pollution happening in the first place by reducing our consumption of disposables.
