Nadia Sparkes, from Norfolk, refused to let the taunts deter her from litter-picking on her way to and from school. After her story went viral she became an ambassador for the wildlife charity WWF, and now has more than 4,000 followers on social media.

This young woman deserves all the support and encouragement we on Care2 can give her. Bullies have no place in a civilised society. Unfortunately civilised society is disappearing here in the UK very rapidly.

i collect trash in our local parks, which all have streams running through them, if that trash isn't picked up it goes straight into the ocean!
i understand the taunting this dear girl gets, i have received strange comments & looks!
The sheeple's ignorance is limitless!!

BRAVO Nadia Sparkes!!!
