For the past two years, Oklahoma City’s war on
litter – LitterBlitz - has found an invaluable ally in the form of OKC
Beautiful. And this year, arming the troops with enough trash bags was
a challenge because the troops just kept on coming – the 35-hundred
volunteers were about 800 more than the year before.
those volunteers do a great job of making a hard job seem like fun.
Each participating team receives supplies of bags, latex gloves,
stickers, a mayoral proclamation, flower seeds and even a calorie
counter card to tally up the health benefits. The OKC Beautiful staff
helps designate locations to clean for those teams that can’t decide on
The judges called the three-week springtime effort a “dynamite”
project. For successfully using LitterBlitz as a catalyst to inspire
continual anti-litter efforts throughout the year, OKC BEAUTIFUL’S LITTERBLITZ IS GOOD NEWS FOR A REALLY CLEAN-LOOKING CAPITAL CITY IN OKLAHOMA!
