Reduce Trash From Our Waterways. 
Foster Litter-Free Texas Watersheds.


Trash is a pervasive problem for aesthetic, economic, and ecological impacts. The Texas coastline is bombarded by trash coming from several outlets of rivers. The Adopt-A-Spot Online Mapping Tool Project was created by a diverse group of stakeholders within the river basin with the goal of fostering a litter-free environment in the Trinity River Basin by enabling community leaders to promote and track trash removal activities in their region. The project steering committee has contracted The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment staff at Texas State University to develop thisproject website and mapping tool.

Sooner or later, we will have to recognize that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans.
