FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A holiday parade in North Texas will be going green.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (http://bit.ly/1c140Dn ) reports Friday night's Chesapeake Energy Parade of Lights will include about 5,000 litter bags handed out to visitors.

Chad Lorance (luh-RANS') with the Tarrant County Regional Water District calls it reverse litter. He says the community program encourages parade goers to dispose of their own trash instead of leaving it for someone else. The litter bags will be collected following the parade.

The effort is part of an anti-litter campaign that includes Arlington, Dallas, Denton, Fort Worth, Mansfield and the water district. Residents are urged to pick up 10 pieces of trash each Tuesday.
