Would you like to spend your free time in a place where bags, cans and bottles litter the roadways and beaches? Of course you would not. You, just like everyone else, prefer some place nice, clean and litter free.
So when tourists see trash on roadways in South Mississippi, they are more likely to go somewhere else on their next vacation. The concern is so great that now there's even a special committee to stop litter.
It's time we stopped hurting our own tourism economy by not taking the time to find a trash can. Please do your part. Don't litter and don't let others around you litter. It makes for a better place to live, work and play for us and our guests.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
