Les mégots ont été le fléau de notre clean walk urbain ! 996 mégots à 9 en 1h30 et 1.5 km c'est hallucinant ! Les jeunes ont vraiment réalisés qu'ils avaient empeché 996 m"égots de se retrouver dans la Gironde !!! Le pire c'est que deux jours après les mégots étaient revenus pratiquement aux mêmes endroits.(pas de porte, arrière de restaurant..) avec a chaque fois une poubelle à deux mètres de là !!
