In the 1970s, there was a strong anti-littering campaign. A main focus was a public service announcement depicting a Native American with litter tossed near him, followed by a tear streaking down his cheek.
The campaign was effective.
Sportsmen followed the call and pushed for clean river banks and camp sites.
Youngsters reminded each other to not litter.
That campaign is just a memory now and littering is again becoming a local problem once again.
