Texans for Clean Water has announced their “Really Texas?” photo hunt:
“We’re documenting the problem; and we’ve all seen it. It’s on the side of the road. It’s in your local stream. It’s all over our beaches. It’s scattered throughout our parks and playgrounds. It’s flooding out into the Gulf. Texas is littered with tons of stuff that SHOULD have been recycled, but instead was turned into a costly eyesore. From bottles and cans, to restaurant to-go containers, too many times this recyclable material becomes common litter. Let’s change that! Let’s team up to prevent this Texas tragedy from continuing! Let’s start documenting the problem on social media, and tagging the pictures “Really Texas?”
This is your chance to get involved, and help shine the light on the nature of the problem as it appears in your neck of the woods (or streets, or waterways, or parklands, etc.). If you see an ugly scene that makes you think, “Really Texas?” take a picture, and share it with us. It’s that easy! YOU have the power to make a change; and let’s face it, Texas needs your help. Bottom line, today’s away-from-home land-based litter, becomes tomorrow’s Gulf of Mexico’s marine debris!
Email your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org , and please be sure to identify where you took the picture. You can also share your pics on our social media feeds with our hashtag #ReallyTexas?”
