Remember this "Keep America Beautiful" commercial from 1971?


In the early 1970s, Keep America Beautiful started a new ad campaign with the slogan “People start pollution. People can stop it.” The part of the commercial that really got people using trash bins was at the end, when a bag of trash flung from a car window lands at the feet of Iron Eyes Cody (pictured), a Native American in traditional dress. He looks down at the trash and then turns towards the camera to reveal a single tear rolling down his cheek.
