To all my fellow Realtors around the Country. I'm sure all of us collectively must travel about a zillion or more miles a year around our beautiful Country. And, I'm sure we all see folks out on the roadways that litter and just don't care about the land or its beauty. And, I know, there are a lot of dedicated and very interested people who manage and operate "Stop Litter" campaigns and programs throughout the Country. "Well Done" to each of them! We appreciate it! But they can't do it alone.
With all of our tens of thousands of Realtors in America who are constantly on the roadways, think what an impact we might have, collectively, if we all banded together and reported abusers.
I am very proud that my home state of Tennessee has taken this effort on very seriously. We have a strong law with some teeth and a great reporting system whereby anyone can report litterers. (www.StopLitter.org). If your community or state doesn't have something similar, talk to your community legislators or state representatives and get one started.
I am fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful states in the Country. We need to keep it that way. "We" are fortunate to live in one of the most countries in the world. We need to keep it that way.
So, don't just observe and complain and mumble when you see someone littering. There is something you can do. As patriots. As professionals. As Realtors. "Let's Kick Their Butts!"
