Video one




Some people have a deep, abiding respect for the natural beauty what was once this country . . .

And some people don’t.

People start pollution. People can stop it.

Video two






The first American people loved the land. They held it in simple reverence.

And in some Americans today, that spirit is reborn.

This is South Coast Botanic Garden in California. Once this was a dumping ground for trash and litter.

Community volunteers cleaned, planted and reclaimed it — and there the land is good again.

But all around us are reminders of how far we still have to go.

So everyone must get involved now.

People start pollution. People can stop it.
