Thanks to OKC Beautiful and its continued efforts, Oklahoma City continues to enjoy a clean and litter-free environment. OKC Beautiful is a nonprofit organization in Oklahoma City that aims to enhance the look and image of the city. The organization has several different branches of outreach, including landscaping public areas, beautification, anti-littering campaigns, and even educating people on how to clean and maintain areas around them.
On Monday, Oklahoma City Beautiful launched its new anti-littering campaign in conjunction with the national “Littering is Wrong, Too” campaign. The nationwide anti-littering movement compares littering to other forms of inconsiderate and rude misconduct to demonstrate how unacceptable it is. The kick off included lots of fun activities and giveaways, as well as a message from Executive Director of OKC Beautiful, Lisa Synar.
Also included in the campaign kickoff was the launching of the litter pickup program by LitterBlitz. LitterBlitz is a citywide litter pick up event that encourages residents to get out en masse and pick up trash around the city.
