Interesting Fact # 1097 - Postmen

More than 13,000 red rubber bands are to be sent back to Royal Mail.

(It's part of a protest by the Keep Britain Tidy campaign, because postmen in the UK keep littering the streets and people's front gardens with the red rubber bands that are used to hold mail together. Interestingly Deutsche Post seem to use the same bands, and we have the same problem. I'm going to start gathering them up for my own little protest.)
