'Don't Mess with Texas' launches new campaign
AUSTIN (AP) - The famous "Don't Mess with Texas" anti-litter
campaign is launching an effort to get travelers to use a trash bag
in their vehicles.
The "Rock the Bag" tour makes a stop at the Texas Relays track
meet this week in Austin, where those attending will be given
litter bags as they leave.
In all there will be 28 stops in 16 cities to promote the
Rapper Chamillionaire and designer Todd
Oldham are volunteers in the campaign.
Fashion and home decor designer Oldham, host of Bravo's "Top
Design," has donated a design for one of the litter bags.
Grammy Award-winning Chamillionaire is appearing in a "Don't
Mess with Texas" television spot.
A new study by the Department of Transportation reveals that
nearly all Texans know they shouldn't litter -- but more than half
do it anyway.
