We are currently bringing attention to Ten on Tuesday campaign pledge that is a part of the reverselitter.com website. Reverse Litter is an anti-litter awareness and education campaign that was created in 2012. The campaign is centered around protecting North Texas waterways from trash and debris. Most littering doesn’t just happen. It doesn’t accidentally end up by sidewalks, in parking lots, or along roadways. That Styrofoam cup didn’t just fly out of the back of a pickup truck on its own. Someone had to put it there in the first place. Most litter finds its way into the environment because someone chose convenience over finding a trash can. And that’s not cool. Litter trashes out the places we live, work, and play. It also winds up in our waterways, polluting a resource that we all depend on to survive. We’re stepping up to change that. Are you willing to help?
We as a City have taken this pledge to pick up ten pieces of litter each Tuesday and we invite each of you to take the pledge with us. You can follow along with our progress each Tuesday on our Facebook Page and you can even have your own litter cleanup efforts highlighted by emailing us your cleanup photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
