The Litter Letters made last year by Pigeon Forge High School students and Keep Sevier Beautiful have moved to their new location. The 6ft tall WHY letters are on display now at Ripleys Aquarium of the Smokies in Gatlinburg and will stay there through Earth Day.
I initially created the Litter Letter Project for my MFA thesis at Vermont College of Fine Arts as my main focus and research centered around using graphic design as a tool for behavioral change. What began as a local collaboration with a small group of people developed into reality thanks to the funding and support from Keep Louisiana Beautiful. This website serves to document the project and its growth as it developed across multiple states in the USA and now all over the world. It has been a wonderful journey so far working with many great people as they create their own versions of this idea to address the issue in their communities.
