I received an exciting new submission from Project PUT: Pick Up Trash, a blog started by Eloise and her mom Emily. They saw their community in Vermont covered with litter and decided to take action by picking up trash together. Together they wrote new lyrics and created a theme song for Project PUT. Eloise and Project PUT received a poster in the mail for this winning submission:

 

THE PROJECT PUT (Pick Up Trash) THEME SONG:

THIS LAND FOR YOU AND ME

 

Sing to the Tune of AMERICA: MY COUNTRY ‘TIS OF THEE


Words by Eloise and her mom Emily

This land for you and me

Protect its beauty

With Project PUT.

Pick Up Trash you see

It’s simple as can be

Let’s make nature garbage free

And improve the world.
