Bette Midler hates litter, and so do Durham transit providers, Triangle Transit and DATA. That's why they're joining forces with Keep Durham Beautiful to spread the word that littering is just plain wrong.
This partnership enforces DATA's and Triangle Transit's commitment to promote sustainability and a more environmentally responsible community. By spreading the word about this initiative they hope to beautify Durham and drive home the point that littering is not only an eye sore, but is as socially unacceptable as, say, tripping your grandma. Reps will get the word out on Twitter and will appear at busy bus stops to talk about litter and collect riders' parallel-to-littering wrongs.
Want to help out? Just tweet an example of an egregious wrong and then add a reminder that littering is wrong too. For example:
Clipping your nails on the bus. Littering is wrong too. #litter @TriangleTransit @kdbdurham

Remember to mention @TriangleTransit and @kdbdurham and use the hashtag #litter in your tweets. Triangle Transit will reward the funniest/wrongest tweeter of the day with a code worth $25 at Restaurant.com. The promotion is slated to run indefinitely.
