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.”
