Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine Claims Disposable Facemasks Are the New Cigarette Butts, the Biggest Cause of Litter

Today’s Jeremy Vine programme highlighted the problem caused by people dropping face masks in the street, causing unsightly litter and possible danger as the masks become wet and slippery underfoot. Listeners phoned in, angry about the unsightly rubbish, with one listener is a commuter belt town claiming it was worse around the station, as commuters ‘ just take their masks off and throw them on the ground.’

 

Facemasks as the New Litterbugs

 

Facemasks are rapidly becoming an issue as bad as plastic carrier bags once were, despite the efforts taken by supermarkets to encourage consumers to reuse carrier bags or bring their own bags.

 

One listener even went as far as to suggest a walking stick with a spike for picking up litter.

 

Another claimed shops should not be allowed to sell disposable masks, only reusable ones.

 

In France, litterbugs are now fined 135 euros for dropping a face mask, rising to 375 euros for non-payment.

 

It’s estimated that worldwide, 194 billion masks and gloves are in use every month, ending up in our oceans, choking wildlife, ending up in the stomachs of sea creatures and as we know, taking 450 years to biodegrade.
