Postman Pat's elastic bands lambasted for littering

According to BBC News in a piece titled "Royal Mail's red rubber band use revealedRoyal Mail postal worker" (what a catchy title guys...), Postman Pat uses 4,000,000 rubber bands every year at a tune of £5m, an increase of 40% over 5 years.

No wonder why every day I find dozens in my street alone.

Why can't they make giant rubber balls with them like any other office workers? Or just reuse them?
