Mount a "Keep Oregon Clean" Campaign for the environment
Building on the environmental legacy of Gov. Tom McCall ("Keep Oregon Green") support an anti-litter campaign on highways, on beaches, in parks and public places, and in our cities to clean up the environment and rid it of trash and litter.
Thomas Horning commented
Great idea. New residents- young native Oregonians and immigrants alike- have not learned the Oregon lesson in keeping our state clean and tidy. Underlying this ethic is an appreciation for nature and the landscape, and this is the value that keeps Oregon unique and special. This needs support. Trends call for massive population growth. Plans need to be in place to deal with this. Litter and garbage, natural resource impacts, and lifestyle issues must change to accommodate Oregon's natural heritage.
