How to combat the nation blight of litter?

Living on a main road, one of the key benefits of the first lockdown was the absence of the litter that usually ended up in front of our house- either dropped along the footpath or worse deliberately tossed from a car. The easing of lockdown was signalled by the return of litter; firstly masks and gloves followed by the usual fast food packaging. Litter is a common sight along roadside and in public spaces across the country, blighting the environment and posing a threat to wildlife.

How can we harness the community spirit and responsibility, national pride (as directed at the NHS) and volunteering energy seen through the pandemic to both clear up the mess and ingrain the message that it‚’s not OK to litter?
