I am sick of seeing discarded face masks outside shops.

Many lie on verges around car parks and it wouldn’t take much for the business owners to send a member of staff out with a litter picker.

I know they are not the ones throwing down the rubbish - which is unsightly and a threat to wildlife - and litterers should be ashamed, but surely a filthy exterior reflects badly on the company.

It’s not only large stores. Come on shops - show a bit of pride in yourselves and clean up.
