Trash Watch e-mail campaign: Tell these companies to stop littering in our neighborhoods

Posted Sep 13 2008 11:53pm
Great suggestion from Meghan, a Trash Watch reader, who asked for a list of companies that she could e-mail asking them to invest some of their resources to clean up the litter found in neighborhoods that have their company logo on it. Originally, I thought I could do the legwork, write the letters, and hopefully get the corporations posted on Trash Watch to step up and help deal with their litter in our neighborhoods. But, hey, this was a really good suggestion, so without further adieu, I offer "Trash Watch'sDo-It-Yourself E-Mail Kit." All you need, to write an e-mail, is down below:

1. Below is a list of the coporations you can write an e-mail to, pick one, pick them all, its your choice:

McDonalds c/o Don Thompson, President - (click here) - you can also let them know what you think on their blog Open for Discussion.

"Dear Mr. Thompson,

I recently saw your company was listed on Trash Watch, a blog that posts coporate logoed litter found in neighborhoods across the nation. Every piece litter has a face attached to it, each person shares responsibility for not littering, but so do corporations. Trash Watch asks that companies who have thier litter posted on the site to take responsibility and correct it. To show that you care about the neighborhoods you do business in and that your company embraces corporate responsibility, I suggest you either (1) send your employees to clean up the affected areas; or (2) contribute to a local non-profit in the affected area that conducts litter clean-ups. For companies that show leadership and correct the situation, Trash Watch will recognize your company's efforts and add your company to its Good Corporate Citizen list. Thank you in advance for keeping our neighborhoods free of corporate logoed litter.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]"

2. If you send an e-mail to one of these companies, drop me an e-mail at sean@madmanbamboo.com or simply post in the "Comments" section of this blog. This is not a requirement, but it would be nice to know and keep track of.

More companies contact information to come. Join the Trash Watch e-mail campaign and help battle litter in our neighborhoods.
