The Face of Litter: DNA taken from trash used to map features of litterbugs in Hong Kong — RT News

An environmental group in Hong Kong has gone high-tech in its fight against street littering. It actually collects human DNA from rubbish to recreate the faces of those who left it, believing that public shaming will do a better job than government fines.

In a campaign of “putting a face behind the crime,” the group collects cigarette butts, chewing gum and carton cups and makes composite pictures. The genetic material from these things then goes to a laboratory, where scientists use it to predict ethnicity and face shape, as well as eye and hair color from the samples.
