Sponsored by The District Coffee Company and the Ocean Springs Chamber, one downtown business is taking trash head-on.
Meagan Miller and her kids were walking around downtown and noticed how much litter lives on the streets and wondered why it wasn’t being picked up. So she grabbed a garbage bag and some gloves and taught her kids how to make an easy difference.
“Ocean Springs is a beautiful place, so why not keep our environment as clean as we possibly can,” said Meagan Miller, owner of The District Coffee Company. “Litter for Lattes is a way to bring people out on the town, show our children how to be proactive and take care of the place we call home. Now, anytime the kids see litter, they get excited because they know they are doing their part in helping our sea life and overall environment.”
So, Miller has teamed up with the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce to make a difference and reward those who help keep Ocean Springs clean with a FREE cup of coffee. Simply bring a bag of litter that you picked up in Ocean Springs to the District Coffee Company (located at 1301 Government St. in Ocean Springs) tag @thedistrictcoffeeco and @oceanspringschamber in your stories or posts (so they can see the location), hashtag #litterforlattes and show that post at the register to get your free cup of joe!
“We want to get the community involved,” Miller said. “After all, we are all in this together.”
