Litter Bug

By Jenny Coon Peterson April 2nd, 2009

I'm very anti-litter. Controversial, I know. Like there's a big pro-litter lobby out there. In my unsullied youth, I was fanatically anti-litter. My gramps had taught me from an early age to point and yell "litter bug!" whenever I saw someone doing some non-trash-can dumping and I was a vigorous enforcer. That is, until I "litter bugged" only the cutest boy in fourth grade and was made fun of for an entire afternoon. It ruined my life for at least three days and made me almost become a little hobo-ette, riding the rails with my bindle and American Girl doll Kirsten nightgown-made-sack.

You don't have to be as batty about littering as fourth-grade-Jenny to get involved with LitterBlitz, a month-long litter clean-up program coordinated by OKC Beautiful, the City of Oklahoma City and the Department of Environmental Quality. LitterBlitz started in 2001 and relies of volunteers to get out there and clean up their neighborhoods.

You can sign up to learn more about LitterBlitz at and volunteer your (and your friends' and family's) time on their Web site.
