Keep East Feliciana Beautiful, an affiliate of Keep Louisiana Beautiful, is urging 50 people — business, community and church leaders, volunteers and elected officials — to commit to giving 30 minutes of their time, beginning at 8 a.m. March 18, to be recognized as Leaders Against Litter by putting on gloves, picking up litter and cleaning up their communities.

The statewide anti-litter campaign is sponsored by Keep Louisiana Beautiful, Volunteer Louisiana, Keep East Feliciana Beautiful and the Lieutenant Governor’s Office.

Each parish in Louisiana is being asked to do the same. No donations are requested, as the event is meant to raise awareness about the litter problem in the state and get public leaders involved. All volunteers, businesses, churches, parish offices and people will be recognized in the effort.

Members of Keep East Feliciana Beautiful are issuing a challenge to East Feliciana Parish businesses, communities and offices to see which organization or entity will have the most people participating.

Commitments to participate are urged now and must be confirmed by calling Babs Vail at (225) 719-1317 or (225) 683-8577 or emailing
