Imagine leaving your seat at a football stadium and
not seeing any litter around you. That goal is being successfully met
by the Ardmore Tigers Quarterback Club and volunteer stadium
groundskeeper, Mita Bates, with their litter-free events.
Volunteers passed Keep America Beautiful litter bags down
each row at the start of the fourth quarter at football games, the fans
easily bagged their own trash with the filled bags gathered later for
large commercial bins. The judges cheered the project as “a great idea
that should work anywhere.”
In fact, the fans have so embraced the concept of litter-free
events that a recent band contest was added to the mix and litter bags
now are taken to “away” games to let Tiger fans police their seating
area before leaving. For setting an example that leaves others
astonished, and for dreaming of taking this project statewide, THE ARDMORE TIGERS QUARTERBACK CLUB IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
