    Keep America Beautiful has done a lot of stuff for litter campaigns, incl.
    an elementary curriculum guide, "Waste in Place," and lots of public
    information material. They may have some research on this topic.You can
    call them at 203-323-8987. They also have a good website.

    We just started running some movie theater ads on the topic of litter, since
    it has been established (I don't have the data) that the biggest group of
    litterers (?) are young males aged 18 - 28 years. We hope to reach them
    through the movies!
