Flower Garden?

Flower Garden ?

 

It’s no secret that the plastic bag has been sarcastically called South Africa’s national flower.

Gaby Sidley, from Community Connect, said litter was an enormous problem in South Africa. “It does major damage to the environment; it is a major socio-economic issue; it is unsightly; it costs a great deal of money to undo; it is hazardous to people; and it damages infrastructure. Despite all these facts, people continue to litter around South Africa in unimaginable volumes.”

Tragically, this further quote by Sidley explains why we are experiencing urban decay at an alarming rate, “People (in South Africa) did not think litter was a problem”.
