A comic American writer takes on the scourge of litter

I don’t want this blog to turn into a series of plugs for radio programmes, but I enjoyed this evening’s Radio 4 essay on rubbish by David Sedaris. Like Bill Bryson, Sedaris is an American who has fallen in love with the English countryside but is bewildered by our willingness to spoil it with litter. He is funny – I liked his description of Lucozade as an energy drink that gives people the strength to throw its bottles further – but also outraged. And he is kind enough to name check CPRE – we have been particularly active in trying to tackle one of his bugbears, littering from cars.

You can listen to the programme for another week.
