Here at the NPS we have many promotional merchandise that is really not necessary and most of it we end up finding in the trash or littering our water and beaches. Do we really need a Beer koozie made in China to tell people about Lake Mead NRA? Also with the marketing literature, such as park newspapers, the amount that we are having printed is way more then we can possibly giveaway. We really need to scale back on the amount of marketing material and promotional merchandise. I can not see that these things are really working to get people to the park. The benefit does not out weight the cost.
