With a no eating or drinking policy, it has become commonplace at the Discovery Centre to ask visitors to finish their ice-creams or coffee before coming in. Obviously, we don’t want our displays covered in gooey smudges and with so much for children to play with, we do our best to keep everything sticky-free and hygienic. Nevertheless, we don’t manage to spot them all, and discarded coffee cups, wrappers and ice cream cartons are often found tucked into various nooks in the centre.
A few weeks ago, we took this picture of a couple of visitors and their dog enjoying the new sculpture on East Beach, designed to draw people’s attention to the problem of littering and plastic use, with the message of ‘Take only memories. Leave only footprints.’ Apparently, 150 plastic bottles litter each mile of UK beach and a plastic straw, in use for a mere 4 minutes, will still be around in 450 years. Worst still, those polystyrene boxes we spotted floating in the harbour between the boats yesterday, will never break down.
Thanks to the dedicated teams that undertake regular beach cleans, Dorset Waste Partnership, as well as all those who pick up rubbish and put it in one of the many often emptied bins, we can still enjoy our beautiful area.
