Keep Arkansas Beautiful

Keep Arkansas Beautiful hosted a “Do Good. Have Fun.” event with Bud Light and Keep America Beautiful on Saturday, June 28! More than 100 volunteers gathered at Pinnacle Mountain State Park in Little Rock to help beautify the park.

Volunteers painted the Visitor’s Center and entrance gates to the park, and also re-painted the trail-markers on the park’s hiking trails. Volunteers also helped clear and sort storm debris, which will be used for Park activities in the fall and winter. Finally, volunteers worked hard to remove approximately 500 pounds of litter from in and around the park!

Special thanks to all the individuals and organizations who helped make this “Do Good. Have Fun.” event a success!

After the event, volunteers enjoyed a nice lunch and ice-cold Bud Lights, thanks to generous support from Anheuser-Busch on a national and local level. Special thanks to Golden Eagle of Arkansas for all their help and support with this event!

Littering is Wrong Too – Nashville, TN

The Nashville, TN Metro Beautification & Environment Commission has recently launched an anti-littering campaign through a grant from the TN Department of Transportation to engage Nashvillian’s humor and wit to make the point that tossing trash on the ground is no laughing matter. The interactive campaign focuses on the (sometimes) amusing fact that some things are just plain wrong: like networking at a funeral, breaking up on Valentine’s Day or singing out of tune… littering is wrong too.

“The purpose of this campaign is to decrease litter by raising awareness and appealing to the sensibilities that everyone has that some things are just wrong. Littering is no joke – it hurts our beautiful city,” said Veronica Frazier, Metro Beautification executive director.

The campaign has launched and is being spread throughout the city through local events, billboards, street teams, koozies, frisbees, TV stations, newspapers, magazines and just asking Nashvillians to “Write Their Wrongs.” Vanderbilt University football coach James Franklin, Mayor Karl Dean, Prince’s Hot Chicken owner Andre Prince-Jeffries, the Predator’s Gnash and other local celebs have joined the cause to make the point that “littering is wrong too.”
