EarthCare and Tennessee’s Adopt-A-Highway Program
by Patrick Spiesser
EarthCare began participating in
During these cleanups we get a better look at our impact on nature and at the burden we inflict on creation by the careless handling and production of garbage. It is amazing how many of our society's "consumer products" end up along the side of the road. Taking part in these cleanups has been an eye opener for me and has led me to think about what goes into the trash can. It seems that much of the trash lands on the embankment on its way to the landfill or gets thrown out of moving vehicles. We need to keep up the work of cleaning up after ourselves. We also need to become more aware of the fact that we generate too much refuse.
would like to make an appeal to our members who are not yet involved in
EarthCare's Adopt-A-Highway cleanup to consider participating. Participation includes watching a video
from the Tennessee Department of Transportation about the Adopt-A-Highway
program (about 15 min.) and signing a release statement for the State of
with our cleanup in November of 2001, I would like to change our meeting point
First time participants are asked to please contact me a week ahead of time so I can arrange for the viewing of the video and the signing of the release statement. For more information on the project, please feel free to call me: Patrick Spiesser at (423) 855-7488.
