8. Hey, I was the same age too
when I first saw that! And, as for the poster above, I never got the impression that it meant a specific kind of polluted materials... I thought it applied to anything that didn't belong in the street. I remember there was feeling of satisfaction when litter did seem to be reduced.

I still get ticked when I see people flick their cigarettes out the window or in a yard as they are NOT BIODEGRADABLE.

AND, I think that's why the Gore film this summer resonated so deeply in me.

Thanks for the post and thanks for the link. It was great to see that ad again.
