ABOUT REVERSE LITTER
Reverse Litter is an anti-litter awareness and education campaign that was created in 2012. The campaign is centered around protecting North Texas waterways from trash and debris. Through public education, community outreach and engagement, Reverse Litter aims to decrease the amount of trash that winds up in our waterways and influence how people think and act regarding litter.
One influential initiative, Ten on Tuesday, entices action by encouraging citizens to make a pledge to pick up 10 pieces of trash every Tuesday, or once a week. This initiative is not only intended to be an individual effort but also a collective effort by our entire community to create a lifestyle change that has a long lasting, positive effect on our environment.
Reverse Litter is funded by the cities of Dallas, Denton, Fort Worth and the Tarrant Regional Water District.
Because we all litter – We just might not know it.
Unintentional and accidental acts of littering are an everyday occurrence and most of us are completely oblivious.
From unintentionally dropping a candy wrapper to the ground or a coffee cup flying out of the back of your pick-up – littering happens, and we’ve all done it. And we can all make a difference by making an effort to reduce these kinds of unintentional acts.
We invite you to take the pledge and pick up 10 pieces of trash every Tuesday!
