Caption from clipping scanned online:
Pollution: it’s a crying shame.
But does it have to be? Not if you do something about it.
So the next time you see pollution point it out to someone who can do something about it.
People start pollution.
People can stop it.
Project PUT would say, that if the pollution you see is litter, you should do your part and PICK IT UP and throw it in the recycle or a designated trash receptacle.
