A new initiative from Parish Proud is equipping Lafayette Parish residents with necessary tools to combat litter.

The #PickUpLFT initiative launched on Thursday, July 23 and aims to provide citizens with a safe way to pick up litter when and where they see it.

The initiative will continue until October 2020.

"We're supplying citizens with vests, gloves and litter grabbers," Executive Director of Parish Proud, Katy Dupre said. "With COVID-19 still putting a damper on larger litter pickup events around the Parish, we're hoping #PickUpLFT helps citizens and their families to get out there and pick up around our community."

Those who participate in the litter initiative are encouraged to post pictures of their efforts on social media.

For information on how to get a tool kit, visit the Parish Proud Facebook page.

Once registered, kits will be delivered to residents.
