Assignment No. 3: TRASH pick-up

FEB 1-29…TRASH pick-up. I grew up in the 1970’s and remember recycling tin cans (not aluminum), paper and glass jars and bottles. I also grew up through the Boy Scouts and developed an appreciation of God’s created wonders. For two assignments in a row, it looks likes I’ll be braving the cold. I guess that’s what happens when you trust a computer.

More than four decades ago, the Ad Council partnered with Keep America Beautiful to create a powerful visual image that dramatized how litter and other forms of pollution were hurting the environment, and how every individual has the responsibility to help protect it. The ad, which featured Native American actor Iron Eyes Cody, “The Crying Indian,” first aired on Earth Day in 1971. The campaign used the line, “People Start Pollution. People can stop it.” The ad became one of the most memorable and successful campaigns in advertising history.

  1. An American Indian saying that I have always held close: “You don’t inherit The earth from your ancestors. You borrow it from your children.”
