A Rant

I love living in the countryside.  I am very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world and the scenery just adds to my enjoyment when we go out for a hack.

Some days though, it seems that somebody is trying to spoil that.  We go out for a ride and see so much rubbish littering the lanes.  These are tiny little lanes too with very little traffic – I know bigger roads are far worse.

Apart from the aesthetic and environmental implications, the rubbish is actually dangerous for us personally.  We have to keep a very close eye on our field which runs along the side of the road as there is almost always some rubbish which ends up in there.  If the ponies ate it there could be terrible consequences.

I just cannot understand how anyone can think it is okay to throw litter out of a car window.  I used to assume that it was people used to road sweepers coming along every so often.  Realistically though, these lanes are only used by locals.  I don’t know if they think someone will pick up after them or if they just don’t care but it makes me sad to see so much rubbish filling up the lane.  Please, always take you litter home to a bin or to be recycled!

  1. I have never understood that. We have the same problem on the roads. Luckily, our farm is at the dead end of a road…but we still get blown trash which is still crazy because we are far from other roads.
