Bette Midler hates litter, and so do Durham transit providers, Â Triangle TransitÂ andÂ DATA.Â Â That’s why they’re joining forcesÂ withÂ Keep Durham BeautifulÂ to spread the word that littering is just plain wrong.
ThisÂ partnership enforcesÂ DATA’sÂ andÂ Triangle Transit’s commitmentÂ toÂ promote sustainability and a more environmentally responsible community.Â By spreading the word about this initiativeÂ theyÂ hope to beautify Durham and driveÂ home the point that littering is not only an eye sore, but is as socially unacceptable as, say, tripping your grandma. Reps will get the word out onÂ TwitterÂ and will appear at busy bus stops to talk about litter and collect riders’ parallel-to-littering wrongs.
Want to help out? Just tweet an example of an egregiousÂ wrong and then add a reminder that littering is wrong too.Â ForÂ example:
Â Clipping your nails on the bus. Littering is wrong too. #litter @TriangleTransit @kdbdurham
Remember to mention @TriangleTransit and @kdbdurham and use the hashtag #litter in your tweets. Triangle Transit will reward the funniest/wrongest tweeter of the day with a code worth $25 atÂ Restaurant.com. The promotion is slated to run indefinitely.
