Calling All Sloganeers!

Posted March 22, 2007

We've had a few entries in our anti litter slogan contest but we need a few more.  We want to come up with a snappy hook line that will convince North Carolinians to stop trashing our roadsides.  A recent trip to Charleston convinced me that NC can do a better job of curbing litter compared to at least some sections of South Carolina.

Coming up the slogans I have received so far.  I will take entries for another week and then announce and winner and a prize.  I don't have any coffee mugs but I've got lots of music to give away.

These anti litter slogans have been sent in.  Feel free to comment on them and add your own:

"Secure your load. Don't lose it on the road"
(You swap your trash for the cash you will spend in littering fines.)
"Don't litter our home: On your Carolina ride, remember your Carolina pride."
This is our world people.. keep it clean
Keep the Earth clean, it's not Uranus"
Take pride in where you live !

    Bed bugs bite.
    Jitterbugs dance.

    What's cool about


    So clean up your reputation,
    and stop littering.

    Put the trash in the can, man.

    Trash it or stash it. You choose or you lose

    (More slogans from my email, Thanks, Nadine!)

    No N
    Clutter in C

    Don't litter, it attracts critters.

    Litter damages your stuff too. (meaning the slashed tire gotten from running over some metal)

    Bill, this was fun.
