Critters Don't Litter

Adele wrote Critters Don’t Litter because of her love for our beautiful country and all the ‘critters’ who live in it.

It is her desire to inform children and adults of the effects of littering and their responsibility to ‘Make and Keep America Beautiful’.

In the story, Critters Don’t Litter, Sammy the skunk is reunited with his cousin, Andy. Sammy learns that Andy works for the Animal Environmental Protection Agency and wants to teach all the animals who live in the ‘deep woods’ about littering and recycling.

This educational book presents facts about littering and its harmful effects in a creative and memorable way, but it’s only a first step. We need your help to spread the word and make a difference. Take a look through ways that you can get involved with the Critters Don’t Litter movement and help keep our nation litter free. Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.

Consider purchasing books, posters, signs or stickers to make available in your office or place of business to promote awareness about littering. This can be as simple as having a book or poster in a waiting area or one of our stickers displayed on a public trash can. View all available materials below.

Do you work in a local school or public arena where you could host an event or educational program? You can purchase materials below to use at the event or you can contact Adele to discuss speaking engagements or event planning. Critters Don’t Litter has been successfully implemented into the Anderson County School System of Tennessee, and we would love to help you put together a similar program at your school.
