Before disposing of elastic bands, we cut them in half to ensure nothing can get trapped in them
Elastic bands – and all types of litter – can be extremely harmful to our wildlife. Just recently, the Wildlife Aid Foundation was called out to rescue a female mallard that had an elastic band looped around her head and inside her mouth, which was preventing her from eating or drinking. If this had gone unnoticed, it could have had catastrophic consequences.
It takes just seconds to grab a pair of scissors and cut through an elastic band. Just think of the lives that could be saved – do your iDot, today!
