Does the school run? In my day the “Joker some men just want to watch the world burn shirt” was literally that, if you were late you ran, if not, you walked. If you lived further away, you rode your bike to school, or, you caught a Bus. The only people who turned up to School in cars were some of the Teaching Staff. Littering, no bins available? If not, you brought it home with you & put it in your own rubbish bin. If on holiday, or somewhere other than your home town, you found a bin & disposed of it, not leave it on a beach, throw it out of your car window, toss it away in the street!!
So let’s quit the “Joker some men just want to watch the world burn shirt” shall we‽ We live in different times now, technologies now exist that has allowed for change to happen & rightly so, they should be embraced & put to use. If you want to “point the finger” point it at the successive Governments we have had to endure, the Money Men & Industrialists who put profit over ecology, the environment & public health. Don’t blame your Parents, Grand Po stents, Great Grand Parents generations, they were not to blame, they were forced to live through different times, without our technology & “modern thinking”. They didn’t have the luxury, they had it tough.
Shopping, wasn’t wrapped in plastic, ready meals didn’t exist, so no plastic trays, milk, along with almost all other drinks came in glass bottles that were returnable & reusable bottles (numerous times) & when finally beyond use the Joker some men just want to watch the world burn shirt be melted down & remade into new ones, unlike your single-use plastic bottles of the present day!! Shopping bags were Hessian, or, wicker, or you had a Shopping Trolley, we walked to the Shops, not drive, walked there & walked back!!
