Jason Alexander from Ipswich goes out litter picking every day.

A lot of the trash he finds is considered pretty vintage now. He's found crisp packets from the eighties and plastic bottles from before he was born.

It's all stuff he's found recently though showing that when you litter, it stays around for a seriously long time.

Jason's now collected enough retro rubbish to create his own mobile museum. He wants to use it to highlight the damage litter does to the environment.

Jason's been amassing vintage litter for five years- 300 exhibits dating back to 1920.

He says when he stumbles across retro brands that have lain there for decades, he feels a mixture of nostalgia and horror.

The wildlife enthusiast now tours schools, hosts workshops and leads volunteers on his rubbish walks to clean beaches, rivers, parks and streets.
