  1. Tread Lightly!

    Tread Lightly! is a nonprofit organization in the United States with the mission "to empower generations to enjoy the outdoors responsibly through stewardship to further the goals of responsible and ethical recreation." It was started by the United States Forest Service in 1985, but became a nonprofit in 1990. The organization is "managed and financed by companies like Ford Motor and Toyota." It leads awareness workshops and restores trails: "Our mission is to empower people to enjoy the outdoors responsibly," said president Lori Davis. The Washington Times noted in 2001 that "most manufacturers of off-highway vehicles — including Land Rover, Jeep, Subaru, GM, Ford and Toyota are active in this effort." Davis told the Associated Press in July 2003 that the organization "has been working with auto manufacturers to try to change the off-road images used in TV commercials" and that "Toyota, Nissan and Mercedes-Benz have asked Tread Lightly to review their ads, and at least one company spiked a TV spot the organization didn't like."
