We know that one of the most important aspects of litter prevention is educating area youth on the negative consequences of throwing trash where it doesn't belong.
Research has shown that most children have learned their basic habits and practices by the end of their 4th grade year in elementary school.
With this in mind, we are working with CPSB and other private schools and educational institutions in the region to develop a presence of litter awareness through special projects and school visits.
Fetch the Litter Retriever is helping Calcasieu Parish school children keep their campuses clean. Fetch is a 4-foot-tall dog made entirely out of trash found in Calcasieu Parish. His tail, constructed out of a broom, symbolizes how important it is to sweep away litter that can leave a school looking like a scary lab experiment.
But you don’t have to wait for his school visit to see Fetch in all his broom wagging glory. Fetch and his human, Trashsquatch, have supporting roles in the parish litter videos and Fetch is a regular in the Krewe of Barkus Parade during Mardi Gras season.
