    State anti-litter campaign mottos?

    Do all 50 states have them?

    I know Oklahoma is/was "Don't lay that trash on Oklahoma" and Texas is the legendary "Don't Mess with Texas". What are some others?

    We (Michigan) do not have one, and I wish we did (for the coolness factor).

    OTOH, just after the ten-cent bottle deposit bill took effect in the late 70s, there was an abrupt reduction in all roadside trash. Perhaps the powers that be never felt the need.

    There's discussion of expanding said bottle bill (highest in the nation) to non-carbonated beverages.

    South Carolina has "Palmetto Pride" as the anti litter campaign with the simple motto "Keep South Carolina Beautiful".

    The Adopt a Highway program is called "Palmetto Prideway"

    New Mexico's is "Toss no Mas," usually said with Gov. Bill Richardson's gruff intonation.

    We really need it, too. Litter was one of the first things that stood out to me when I moved here 10 years ago. I think part of it is that we have BIG winds and very little ground cover. So, trash from large areas tends to blow into town or collect in certain places in great numbers. We used to live at the end of a long E-W street (prevailing winds usually blow from West to East) and our fence would be plastered with litter after a big wind storm.
