Letter: Let’s clean up our own backyard

The Forum has published several articles about the trash build up in the Bakken oil counties and the efforts to clean it up. It seems to me we should be looking closer to home.

The plastic, cans, paper cups, and other items disposed of improperly along road sides, in ditches and on the streets shows we have little respect for our environment. It is time to institute a new litter bug campaign. It could begin with a multi-level contest to create a picture of a litter bug and then continue with educational and public service announcements not only of the winner of the contest but what we all can do to create beautiful Fargo-Moorhead and surrounding areas.

Let’s clean up our own backyard before we put the Bakken on our front pages.
