8-Foot Tall Soda Can Comes to State Fair to Raise Littering Awareness
LAS CRUCES- An eight-foot tall, 400 pound soda can will be a special guest at this year's Southern New Mexico State Fair.
In an attempt to rid New Mexico of 6,000 pieces of litter on every single mile of road throughout the state, New Mexico Clean and Beautiful created a gigantic piece of trash in the form of an oversized littered soda can to show people that litter is really a much bigger problem than they realize.
The can that travels all over the state of New Mexico will be at the 43rd Annual Southern State Fair & Rodeo in Las Cruces through the weekend.
New Mexico Clean and Beautiful, a program under the New Mexico Tourism Department that works to eliminate litter from the state, has created an over-sized littered soda can as part of its “Toss No Mas” campaign
