Spring has arrived! Carolina jessamine vines are showering the pathways with their blooms, Mexican plum flowers are bursting out and litter is very visible in the greenbelts!
Become a superhero, practice the Keep America Beautiful mantra…
Imagine if everyone just picked up one piece of litter each day. YOU can help The Woodlands Township make strides towards a litter-free community by joining the Earth Day GreenUP, a Great American Cleanup event on Saturday, March 25, 2017.
- Choose one of 8 Village parks as your check-in location; you will be assigned a clean-up area in that Village.
- Want to target a specific area? Let us know when you register!
Past participants have noticed that the lovely green spaces around the community conceal a significant amount of litter. When we become pedestrians, we get a different perspective. The landmark 2009 Keep American Beautiful study found that the majority of litter on roadways – 91%, or 46.6 billion pieces – is less than four inches and the most frequently counted littered items were tobacco products (38%), which were predominantly cigarette butts followed by paper (22%) and plastic (19%).
