I’m Fed Up of Loom Bands

Kids (and some adults) have gone crazy for loom bands. You can make these little plastic bands into bracelets, bags and even dresses and you can pick up packs of bands for only a quid ($1.50) or so.loom1

But the little bands are easy to lose or let go of and they are getting everywhere and, much like cigarette butts, they are ending up in waterways and washing out to sea. I picked these two bands up in a pristine cove in Cornwall, floating on the sea surface and you can be sure that there are plenty more being eaten by fish and polluting our oceans.the loom bands I found floating in the sea in Cornwall
