I am Olivia Bibby and I'm 8 years old.
Every Saturday I pick up litter with my grandma (Oma) in Ruabon. We usually pick up litter at the local playground. As you can see we filled 3 bags this Saturday. It took us about an hour and a half.
I believe people shouldn't drop litter because it harms wildlife and makes everywhere look messy.
[What a lovely little girl - thank you so much Olivia.]
