Columbia, SC (April 28, 2010)- PalmettoPride, under the leadership of Senator David L. Thomas, was initially created as the Governor’s Task Force on Litter by Executive Order under Governor Hodges in 1999. Formed as a response to citizens’ concerns about litter, Palmetto pride has greened South Carolina through its four-pronged approach: education, enforcement, awareness, and pickup. As their partnerships and programs increased and matured, the organization outgrew its task force role and became PalmettoPride. The organization donates trees used in statewide public-space beautification projects through their tree grant program.
