Don’t Mess with Texas Unveils 25th Anniversary Litterbag

Don't Mess with Texas

The iconic Don’t Mess with Texas anti-litter campaign is in its 25th year and a special litterbag has been designed to commemorate the anniversary.

The design (seen on this page), is a red, white and blue litterbag in the shape of Texas and it was designed by McKinney resident Jenifer Ostler.

Texans across the state submitted original art for the chance for their design to appear on the special-edition litterbags as part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s Don’t Mess with Texas Design A Litterbag contest. Nearly 300,000 combined votes were made by Texans for the top 10 designs.

Don’t Mess with Texas has also been airing special television commercials, featuring George Strait, to celebrate their 25th Anniversary.

The 200,000 special-edition litterbags with Ostler’s design will be printed later this month courtesy of A Bag’s Life, a partner for the Design A Litterbag contest.

“Don’t Mess with Texas litterbags serve an important purpose, and we look forward to printing this new design on the anniversary litterbags,” said Texas Retailers Association president and CEO, Ronnie Volkening, who represents over 2,000 Texas retail locations participating in the Texas A Bag’s Life plastic bag recycling campaign. “We extend a big congratulations to the winner.”

“It’s rewarding to see creativity coupled with something that benefits our state — keeping litter off Texas roads,” said Brenda Flores-Dollar, program administrator for TxDOT’s Travel Information Division. “We appreciate all of the entrants who took time to create a litterbag design.”
