Have you picked up a piece of litter today? Upload your pics!

Sharron Pardoe Reporter from Dominion Post

Hi neighbours! our Litter by Little campaign to pick up a piece of litter a day has got off to a fine start and we have been flooded with photos of people and their litter hauls. We'd also love you to upload your pictures to Neighbourly by commenting below so your neighbours can see the difference you are making.

If you see a piece of litter, do you walk on by or pick it up and put it in a bin? We believe we should all do our part to help get rid of litter. Changing habits can be hard, but together we can make a huge difference by picking up a piece a day; Litter by little. Now please join us in making our environment a cleaner, better place.

Pick up some litter, email us a photo and caption, and join the Litterati Photo Gallery. We'll update the gallery daily to recognise all the good sorts making a difference. COMMENT BELOW!

Captions should include your name, along with location and date of rubbish pick-up. And please add any other information you think relevant or interesting. Email thewellington@stuff.co.nz
