Heritage of Splendor

By Jen

Al Gore has nothing on Ronald Reagan.

The whole thing is really interesting (The third grade litterbug art contest is amazing), but here are some relevant quotes:

5:15: “…The litter problem seems to get worse, sadly and ironically because of scientific advances in modern living…the art of modern packaging has helped to make our outings even more enjoyable. Almost anything we need is conveniently available. But it is these wonderful packages, thoughtlessly discarded, which we convert to litter.”

11:17: “The need has become critical to protect and preserve the lovely land we hold in trust for future generations. The time has come to do something. And by a strange paradox, this is really the easiest of all national problems to solve. Instead of going into the ground or into the water, discards go into a litterbag…”

12:43: “We should remember that group effort is simply individual effort multiplied.”

14:00: plug for Keep America Beautiful
