Education is communication in a more complex form. It aims to change the attitudes that cause littering.
The basic premise of the New Jersey Clean Communities program is to change habits so residents do not litter, bring their own reusable bags when shopping, skip the straw, and other sustainable practices.
A long-term education program will teach both residents and visitors the ramifications of littering and ways to work together to prevent litter from affecting our state.
The Hazlet Clean Communities program has brought professional performers to Hazlet schools to present programs on littering.
