Check out what others have to say about littering in the Lone
think littering is barbaric and rude. I am a Texan, born and
bred; anyone littering is messing with the land I love. I
have a voice recorder, and I keep it in my truck while driving.
Anytime I see a litterer, I record the information needed
to fill out a Don't Mess With Texas-Gotcha! form. I've turned
in about a dozen litterers so far, most of those infractions
occurred at intersections. Thanks for supplying Texans with
a tool to curb littering. We really appreciate it.

am so glad that I found this website this morning and that
someone is doing something about this. Just last week, I was
on my way home from work in downtown Houston, and was at a
stop light and the person next to us tossed a cigarette butt
out the window. I wanted so badly to get out my the car and
walk up to that person and pick up the butt and give it to
them and tell them that they lost something. Now with this
site, I have a way of fighting back. Thank you so much. I
have a saying and that is when I walk out the door, the world
is my front yard. So if you pollute, you're polluting in my
for your 'Report a Litterer' service. I use it regularly.
It makes me feel that I can make a difference. I have for
years been outraged to see people disgard their cigarette
butts at red lights. . . it's nice to be able to indirectly
contact those who do it. Hope it helps.

is something that makes no sense. We live in the most beautiful
state in the union and those who trash it should consider
what they are creating: an expensive mess. The more trash
on our roads, the more money it takes to clean it up.

a lazy, selfish move when you litter. There's not any place
where littering is all right.

Mess with Texas. Don't even fiddle with it.
Gossling, one-man anti-litter patrol and star of Messin'
is a $500 fine in Texas. That means if you find yourself with
an empty soda can and you're a $490 cab ride away from the
nearest trash receptacle, it would still be worth your while
to make that trip.

I'm wondering is...who's throwin' away all their butts?
are lifelong Texas natives, clear back to Stephen F. Austin's
bunch. We have traveled the entire state many times over.
Being Texan is more than being a resident in a specific geographical
location - it is a persona and a place unique in the world.
To be a Texan is to own a part of that.

love your programs and it makes me proud to be a Texan to
see your ads that promote TEXAS and keeping it clean.

love that cigarette butts are included in the campaign. I
am amazed at how many smokers throw them on the ground, as
if they just disappear on their own. It is important that
people realize what they do when they so casually litter.
Thank you for all of your efforts!

up the good work. The 'Don't Mess with Texas' program is one
of the best things we have done as a state.

continue to keep people informed about the beauty of a trash-free

step for the environment!

sad thing is that in many of those intersections that do have
curbs/gutters you won't find many cigarette butts lying around
because they've already been swept away in a storm drain.
Unfortunately they end up in our lakes and streams.

all time favorite 'Don't mess with Texas' spot is without
a doubt the one with the B-17...my friends from out of state
just love that spot...they say it is the best anti-litter
ad they have seen as it gets your attention right off the
bat. Bring it back!

know I am not a Texas resident, but I am getting ready to
attend college in Texas and I highly support your campaign
and wish to display this (sticker) on my vehicle while attending
college in your state.

love what you guys are doing. Littering is bad news bears.
H., Champaign, IL - 07.18.01
outraged when I sit behind someone in traffic and they take
the time at stoplights to clean out their ashtrays or throw
out fast food containers. I love this beautiful country and
want to keep it that way.

love what you are doing for Texas. I just love the new Matthew
McConaughey commercial. Matthew is my #1 favorite actor. KEEP
UP THE GOOD WORK!!! :)

LOVE the 'Keep yer butts in the car' billboard. I would love
to put a bumper sticker on my car exactly like that. Please
please please make it into a bumper sticker! People seem to
think that cigarette butts aren't litter. Yuck. Thanks.
M., Austin - 07.18.01
am a tolerant litterer, but now that I have visited your Web
site after hearing your commercial (which told me of your
Web site address) I'm going to be a non-litterer, confronting
people I know that litter, and customers that litter.
