Community leaders throughout the Covington area are joining Keep Covington Beautiful to participate in the third annual “leaders Against Litter ” event Friday, March 18, 2016. Keep Covington Beautiful is one of 29 Keep Louisiana Beautiful affiliates across the state selected to host the statewide “litter-thon.” On March 18th, affiliates will simultaneously conduct a litter cleanup with the help of volunteer community leaders. The goal is to shed some light on the litter problem in Louisiana and to engage leaders in efforts to make Louisiana litter-free.
KCB’s Leaders Against Litter event is set to begin at 9:30 at the Covington Boys & Girls Club at 919 N. Columbia. Following a short meeting, the group will collect litter in the area wearing matching Leaders Against Litter T-shirts. The leaders will be asked to sign a pledge to Speak Up and spread the word that litter is not acceptable, to Pick Up litter whenever they see it, and to Stand Up and lead the way for a litter free Louisiana.
