Many thanks to the April No MOre Trash! Bash participants. We joined forces and collected almost 127,000 bags of litter plus many truckloads of debris. The Bash is over for this year but please continue to keep Missouri clean!
This is a special year as we celebrate Peanut’s 30th birthday. Peanut the Turtle lives the story of how litter hurts. When young, this red-eared slider got a plastic six-pack ring stuck around her shell. She grew but the plastic ring didn’t and she ended up with a peanut shape. Luckily, someone found Peanut. She lives at a Conservation Department nature center showing people the damage litter can do.
